Destin has slowed in the past few weeks, but we are still getting weekend visitors.

Traffic is not heavy, but more heavy on the weekends, but nothing like during the tourist season.

Hope you have a great trip.

Boating is nothing like normal, much less traffic.

We normally start slowing down after Labor Day with back to school. But there does seem to be less people than normal.

Gas has been sporadic with some stations going a couple of days with no gas.

We were there 8/20-27 and there was hardly anyone there. It was great.
