The harbor is right behind some of Destin's best restaurants. It is easily accessed for a stroll after dinner and has much to see. Lots of fishing boats and yachts. Some shopping is also there.

I love this place so much that my wife and I will drive from Columbus Georgia for a day trip. Good food, good friends made with the boat captains. Great place to just relax.

There are lots of cool places to visit from food, to shopping, to booking activities such as parasail and snorkeling. It is a very busy place but well worth the visit.

The closest major airport would be VPS. Valparaiso-Fort Walton Beach. Destin has a private airport right now.
