Saturday Traffic

We will be coming to Destin on Saturday 7/1. We'll be coming from Missouri. What time of day would it be easiest to try to arrive traffic wise? Any suggestions on directions?

Traffic in Destin on 98 is horrible!!!

Both ways from 3PM to about 7 PM.

Especially as you get towards Destin proper west of WalMart.

This from someone who lives in Chicago!!!!

That's why we like to grill instead of dine out.

For some people like myself... the dining out is part of the vacation! A part we look forward to as we anticipate our favorite dishes at our favorite restaurants! Drive or no drive! :-)

This is probably the worst week of the year to be on 98. Anytime after 10:00am and you'll likely be frustrated - in either direction.

Some cloudiness/rain has been around which sends most visitors to the shopping arenas - this only adds to the traffic woes.

Usually it's the daytime when 98 gets clogged, after dark you can move around without problems.

We didn't find Saturday traffic as bad as we thought it would be. We were on 98 thru Destin @ 2:00 - 5:30 and it wasn't bad. However, the rest of the week this seemed like the busiest time. We were at the west end of the strip, near the harbor and it took 30 minutes to get to Destin Commons @ 4:00 one day. On Tuesday the 4th it only took about 10 minutes @ 2:30. The traffic heading west always seemed less. Anytime before 10:00 did not seem bad. We went to Fudpuckers Sunday @ 3:00 and didn't have much traffic.
