"Sun, Sand and Walmart" Destin by sunloverinatlanta
Destin Travel Guide: 324 reviews and 383 photos
Destin has nice beaches and usually not too much seaweed but is very commercialized. Red Lobster, Walmart, Bass Pro Shop, Panera Bread, outlet mall etc. have taken over. There are few local restaurants left on the beach (see photo) and most of those are overpriced. If you go in the high season, it is bumper to bumper. If you don't, it is too cold to swim. I would recommend going east or west of Destin (but not Panama City). However, my family disagrees and we go back to Destin every year.
We have ten people in our family so we always rent a house in a community with a pool but there are some really cheap condo deals available as well.
Baytowne Wharf is a neat place to visit and have a meal but is a bit pricey.
There are nicer beaches to the east of Destin all the way to the edge of Panama City. The water is cleaner but it is getting "trendy" (read expensive). Seaside is neat place to walk around but very pricey and can be crowded.
