Are there any nice State Parks
to go to in Destin?
The 208 acre Henderson Beach State Park is a
gem among the Destin condominiums. It is over a mile of
shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico. There are outside
showers and camping.
Where are some good places to stay in
Destin Holiday Beach Resort (www.condosinc.com) Rents
decent condominiums on the beach. Rates vary depending on
apartment size and whether it faces the beach. Howard Johnson
on Miracle Strip Hwy has a 100 motel rooms, a pool and guest
laundry facilities. It is a good home base from which you can see
the area attractions. Next to this hotel is a Shoney’s
restaurant for the budget minded. They have an inexpensive
breakfast and dinner buffet and HoJo guests receive a discount.
Where is the Destin Chamber of Commerce
Destin Chamber of Commerce at 4484 Legendary Dr at Hwy 98
offers brochures for attractions and accommodations in the area.
Open Mon – Fri..
Where are some nice quiet beaches and some
non-touristy attractions? The beachfront between Fort Walton Beach and
Destin, owned by the US Air Force, is pristine. The beaches
of South Walton are stunning and Grayton Beach State Park is an
oasis. The Indian Temple Mound Museum is a look into the prehistoric
past. Exhibits include Native American flutes, pottery and
a display of Indian dwellings by region.
