Doing some research for our first vacation to Destin, and so far I've gathered that we are searching in high season (August), we should avoid grocery shopping on Saturdays, and that I am just all the way confused about where to stay. So, hoping someone can help me on here!
A little about us and our likes:
We are a family of 4 with young kids so we are looking for at least 1 bedroom, budget ~150-250/night, preferably on the lower end :)
Direct beach access and use- like beachfront, and beach umbrellas/chairs or loungers
Calm water that is "safe" for toddler age kids, powder white sand
We plan on having a car (flying in to ECP)
And a couple questions:
Based on the above, any suggestions on where to stay? We plan on having a 4 night vacation
Are Emerald Coast and Pelican Beach locations like a beach, or are they resorts? I've seen those two come up on this forum and I am getting all mixed up
Thank you in advance!
