One of the best parts of visiting Fort Walton Beach is the nearby attractions to which you will have access. This includes nearby Destin, which offers some exciting activities that will help keep you busy throughout your trip to the Emerald Coast. Here are some nearby attractions in Destin we think you will enjoy:
Destin Harbor Boardwalk
Perhaps the biggest draw to Destin is the Destin Harbor Boardwalk itself. This happening district has everything from incredible eateries to unique shops. Of course, all of the shops are right along the water, giving you some goods views of the sea. If you want something exciting to do, rent a paddleboard and skim across the water!
Destin History & Fishing Museum
Explore the history of Destin with a trip to Destin History & Fishing Museum. Cute exhibits will keep your children in awe as they see giant marlins hanging the wall and even replicas of old fishing vessels. You can find the Destin History & Fishing Museum at 108 Stahlman Avenue.
Big Kahuna’s Water & Adventure Park
What the kids will really love is a splash over at Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park. This local attraction first opened its doors in 1986 and has over 40 different water attractions including a lazy river, water slides, a wave pool, and much more. Having fun at the beach is one thing, but a full day at Big Kahuna’s is where the fun is at! Stop by Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park at 1007 US-98.
While there are plenty of spots to get a good meal in Destin, there is only one place where you can eat and see live alligators in person. That location is Gator Beach, a restaurant with a funky jive and delicious menu. Look down into the alligator pit and see these incredible creatures for which Florida is well known.
Henderson Beach State Park
The biggest and cleanest beach in all of Destin is Henderson Beach State Park. This local park features miles of beautiful beaches that is privately owned. You can easily spend hours laying out in the Florida sun and relaxing by the water’s edge.
