It's a beautiful small town with people from all around the world, there is a board walk with bars, good restaurants, and small stores of hand made things.The beach is amazing, its very, very long, the sand is super soft white like baby powder, walking on it feels great, its so beautiful! I go back every time I can. The water is clear light emerald green, you can see fish swimming around, and its shallow for at least half a mile into the water, amazing is so much fun, everyone should go to Destin and enjoy the most amazing beach I have ever seen.

When to Visit Destin, FL

Thanks to its Florida Panhandle location, Destin has beach weather that spans from spring to fall, punctuated by relatively mild winter weather. At the height of summer, July and August temperatures typically reach the upper 80s or low 90s. Highs average in the low 80s or high 70s throughout the spring and fall, and they dip into the low 60s over the winter.

The Destin area is no stranger to rain showers and thunderstorms, and July and August tend to be the rainiest months of the year. Hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico lasts from June through November, and it's best to plan for rapid weather changes if you visit during that time. Overall, Destin averages about 225 sunny days per year, and its beaches welcome visitors for much of the year.

Plan your visit around one of Destin's many family friendly events, and you're bound to have a trip you won't soon forget. The Destin Seafood Festival takes place on the Destin Harbor Boardwalk at the end of September and includes delicious seafood, a great beer selection, live music, and several kids' zones. For two days in late October, the annual Festival of the Arts features art shows, live performances, and local food.

Locals and visitors alike also look forward to the Destin Fishing Rodeo, which takes place throughout October every year. Compete with other fishermen for the most impressive catch, join in events throughout the month, and don't miss the awards ceremony in early November.
