Celebrating the Fourth of July in Destin is an all-American experience! Families from all over the country flock to our beautiful beaches each year to soak up the sunshine and bask in the American dream. It’s the epitome of a summer family road trip, a time for bonding with loved ones, appreciating our country’s hard-won freedom, and pursuing all the things in life that bring us joy and happiness.

The city of Destin’s fireworks show is mesmerizing. Fireworks launch from the water at the East Pass of Destin (near the Destin Bridge) starting at 9 p.m. Simulcast music for the show broadcasts from our local radio station Z96 (96.5 FM). The show can be seen from Harborwalk Village, from the beaches along Gulf Shore Drive, as well as from many harbor front establishments. Harborwalk Village also features live music and outdoor entertainment beginning at 7 pm.

Many locals will tell you the best seats in the house are on the deck of one of the many charter and leisure boats in Destin that will anchor down on the water. Watching the colorful show burst overhead and then reflect on the glassy black surface of the water is truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

From sea to shining sea, Destin is one of the most enjoyable places available to celebrate America’s birthday. Vacation homes and condos book quickly for this sought-after summer week, so be sure to reserve your holiday home well before the summer season starts for the best selection.
