Your Spring Fling to Destin
Ready to plan your beach vacation to Destin, Florida? The spring season is an ideal time to visit and we’ll tell you why. While we have our share of cooler nights as well as chilly water in the Gulf, the Emerald Coast has plenty of great reasons to visit all year. The next couple months tend to be extra perfect around here, though. Temperatures have been warming up but won’t get too steamy like it can in late summer. The temperature in the Gulf is also rising and will be in the 70s by April which means everyone can enjoy a nice swim instead of just our northern visitors and young kids who don’t mind the frigid water. Our famous sugar white sand and stunning blue-green waves are calling your name.
But that’s not all! When you aren’t relaxing at the beach or playing in the water, there’s plenty to do around town. Year-round events in Destin and South Walton attract visitors every season. The 4th Annual Tequila and Taco Fest is a tasty celebration in HarborWalk Village that can be enjoyed Sunday, March 11th. Over 30 varieties of tequila will be on hand along with fish, shrimp, and beef tacos while live music is performed. During April 27th-30th, the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival will take over Grand Boulevard. 800 wines will be available for tasting as well as delicious food, culinary celebrities, and live music from national artists. May 13th & 14th brings a Mother’s Day weekend tradition, the 29th Annual ArtsQuest Festival. Over 200 juried artists will showcase their unique works around Grand Boulevard’s Town Center with live art demos, music, and great food.
Besides these popular events, Northwest Florida boasts a number of fine dining restaurants, championship golf courses, and premium shopping. What more you could you want? Choose from one of our luxury vacation rentals and finalize your spring getaway!
