Fish Off Of A Pier
Destin is very much a tourist town which means that there are a lot of quaint things to see and do, but if you’re a lover of the ocean and you want to try something new and fun, go to any one of the beautiful piers in the town and do some fishing. Destin has a nickname as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” because the waters are emerald blue and the sandbanks make it so that the fish have conducive and safe environments to multiply and grow in. When you go fishing, you could catch a 2 foot long King Mackerel, or you could catch a dirty old boot, but you never know until you try!

When you’re in Destin, do your best to take a sail out on the open waters and see the city from the sea. You’ll be able to take in landmarks, scope out the best beaches, and see where dolphins and other sea life like to migrate.
When all’s said and done, Destin is the perfect place to bring your family for a vacation. It’s family friendly, can get a little wild on the coast, if you’re up for it, but the views and experiences never end.
