ABOUT DESTIN, FLORIDA
National Geographic has called the Emerald Coast "A Top Place to Visit." TripAdvisor named the area a "Top Destination in the U.S." And Southern Living magazine has named the Emerald Coast the "Best Beach in the South" for 14 straight years.
There is so much to do here, and, if you're like most visitors, you'll find you have to come back again and again to fit it all in. One of the things that sets the Emerald Coast apart from other stretches of beach is the number and quality of our attractions.
You don't need a reason to come to the Emerald Coast, but while you're here you might as well enjoy our special events. Cultural activities, fun festivals, lecture series, athletic events... there's always something happening on our sugar-white shores.
