The greater Destin area has long been treasured as a family drive destination. A paradise for second home ownership, thousands of vacationers visit every year to spend time enjoying the laidback and luxurious beach lifestyle.
The Emerald Coast of Northwest Florida extends from the vibrant beaches of South Walton to the oasis-like sanctuary of Okaloosa Island. The city of Destin, also known as "the world’s luckiest fishing village," is at the heart of the region.
Local culture takes clear inspiration from the awesome landscape--a sight that easily invokes the phrase heaven on earth. Restaurants, attractions, and activities are geared for those with a love of beach life and blissful leisure. Upscale vacation rental homes and condos vastly outnumber hotel-type accommodations.
