Destin FL Real Estate and Destin Vacation Rentals
What once used to be a quiet fishing village has turned into a gem of Florida tourism. Nicknamed “the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village,” Destin is nestled on a peninsula between Choctawhatchee Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. It has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Sunshine State, partly because of the fishing but also because of the picture-perfect views of sugar-fine white sand and crystal clear waters stretching out to the horizon that characterize the Emerald Coast, which have drawn in millions of visitors from around the world.
Families who are interested in visiting Destin for its beaches will want to make the most of their time in this idyllic location – renting their own house or condo right at the beachfront lets them do so. After all, there’s no better feeling than stepping out of your door and being greetedby emerald green waters. Popular rentals for beachfront properties are usually located in the Crystal Beach and Holiday Isle areas. There are the luxury Gulf-front homes in Destiny by the Sea, which feature easy access not only to the beach but also to the harbor where visitors can easily find a boat available for rental. Visitors also frequent Shoreline Village Mall and the various seafood restaurants that offer dishes showcasing the freshest of the day’s catch.
Some of the most frequent visitors of the Destin area are avid golfers. Courses such as the Indian Bayou Golf Club, Kelly Plantation and Regatta Bay Golf Club all have frequent and regular visitors who rent homes nearby.
Tourists more interested in activities closer to the harbor can find a bevy of options for rent in downtown Destin. Destin Towers and Silver Shells are just some examples of rentals available for individuals and families on vacation. Charter a boat to explore the waters of Destin, partake in the various shopping delights of Destin Commons, take the whole family to a water park or to go snorkeling, or simply relax on the shores at nearby Henderson Beach State Park.
