The Harbour Walk area is very fun. There are lots of shops, restuarants and bars to fit any desire. The boats are fun to see and there is a zip line too.

Had a wonderful time on the Boardwalk. Not summertime, so quite a bit wasn't open, but then, you weren't fighting the crowds, so it was quite pleasant. Very dog friendly, so had no problems finding restaurants and bars for lunch, dinner and drinks.

We arranged for a dolphin cruise out of Destin Harbor but there were plenty of other boats to hire for fishing and pleasure. The Harbor also has restaurants and other activities.

Destin Harbor has come a long way from the old "Luckiest Fishing Village" of the 60s. It is large, with a very large tourist fishing and sight seeing fleet. It is a fun harbor to walk along it's boardwalk with the many boats and eateries.
