Destin or Disney?  All right, fellow Disney lovers, who else is thinking about their next vacation?  When it comes to prepping for a holiday or planning the next trip, let’s be honest…Disney is usually at the top of the list! After all, we can’t get enough of waving to princesses and our favorite Disney characters, walking among the castles, cheering at the parades, and taking in the very real magic of the firework’s shows. But did you
know that there is another top family destination in Florida?
Whether you are looking to enjoy a new vacation spot or want a change of pace from your usual Disney excursions, look no further than Destin,Florida!

Located in the Florida Panhandle along the Gulf Coast, Destin is a vacationer’s dream! Planning a romantic getaway with the hubby, a girl’s trip, or a family vacation? Not to worryFrom the iconic, crystalline beaches and emerald surf to outdoor activities and casual dining options, there is something for everybody in Destin and its surrounding area.
First, the beaches. Destin is known for its stretches of pristine, white sand beaches and beautiful Gulf Coast waters. Much of your time can be spent relaxing under a bright umbrella, toes buried in the sand, and soaking up the sun. The sand is also perfect for building your own castles!
Disney castles, perhaps? Or, grab a snorkel and explore the world under the waves.You might even catch the littles pretending to be mermaids. Talk about getting the best of both worlds! Besides the beach, there are plenty of other outdoor activities to participate in. Biking miles of nature trails gets you away from the typical vacation crowds, and also lets you enjoy the beauty of the coast. Paddleboards and surfboards are available to rent if you are feeling adventurous. You can even walk the quintessential beach towns of
South Walton’s Scenic Highway 30a, enjoying the community-oriented atmosphere and checking out the unique coastal shops. Destin is also known for its wide range of kid
-and family-friendly activities. From adventure parks, pirate cruises, escape rooms, a bouldering gym, the zoo, water parks, and zip-line excursions, the kids will be in heaven.
