You won't get lost in Destin if you're here for the beach! But if you're trying to find some place specific, specific directions will come in handy. Remember that the Emerald Coast Parkway is known to the locals as Highway 98 and it goes from the Destin Bridge to Panama City Beach. In the Harbor Area, Hwy 98 is named Harbor Blvd. From Airport Road East to SanDestin the street is named Emerald Coast Parkway, but it is all the same road.... Hwy 98. Street numbers get higher as you travel east from the bridge to the Walton County line. Scenic Highway 98 East parallels Highway 98 and goes along the beach from Henderson Beach to close to Sandestin.
