Best Area to Stay In

Hello! We are thinking about heading to Destin in early April (over Easter). While checking out VRBO, there are 8 "areas" to search, from Holiday Isle to Sandestin. Feeling a bit overwhelmed! Where would be the best area for a family of 4 (children 5 and 8) to stay? I'm open to searching myself or specific condo/home suggestions. Would love to be on the beach - or at least very close! Coming from cold WI. :)

The water is still chilly here in April. I don't usually go in without a wetsuit until Mid-May.

Early April is a very popular time to go.....Someone else would be a better resource to help with the Destin condos, but I just thought I'd suggest looking at Fort Walton Beach/Okaloosa Island. There are a couple of resorts with waterparks that you may be interested in: Waterscape & Destin West. Both are just a couple of miles from Destin.

Our family of 3 would like to visit Destin for the first time this summer. We've never been to Florida and we are looking forward to seeing it for the first time. Our daughter is 14yrs and we'd like suggestions re: the best place to stay that is near good restaurants and coffee/breakfast shops and fun activities to do. We're just uncertain re: which area would be best to stay.
