Want to go 5 or 6 days to the beach. We always go to South Beach because it’s so easy to get around without a car. Do we need a car in Destin? Is there an area we could stay that things will be in walking distance. Like stores or restaurants.? Thanks

Destin is not a good walking destination. Around Harborwalk Village or Emerald Grande at Harborwalk and Baytowne Wharf would be the best places to stay without one.

You can stay gulf front in Sandestin and have the use of the tram to Baytowne Wharf and Grand Boulevard. Check Beachside 1 or 2, or Hilton Sandestin.

Just so you know, the Emerald Grande does not have a beach. It is on the harbor and you have to take their boat to the beach.

Having a car is best. As PF said, Destin is not very walkable.

Anna Maria and Lauderdale By the Sea are good places sans car.
