The saying here goes, “if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute”, and while usually true, its always a good idea to have a rainy day plan! The Destin area offers a variety of different options to keep both kids and adults entertained on soggy days. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite things to do.
Take a trip to the Destin Library
. Located behind the Whataburger close to the Destin harbor, the public library will rent to area visitors.
Eat! A simple suggestion, I know, but you don’t need a perfect sunny view to enjoy some of the best seafood in the nat
Visit the Destin History & Fishing Museum
. Located near the library, go check out the history of your favorite vacation destination and blow away your family and friends with all the knowledge they missed out on.
Take the kids to the Gulfarium
to see dolphins, penguins and other saltwater animals. Or the Emerald Coast Science Center
for some hands on learning fun!
Another great way to spend the day is to hit the lanes. Hurricane Lanes
has 20 lanes and a huge arcade, make sure to grab a famous Tucker Duke
burger between games.
If shopping is more your thing Destin is the place for you! Silver Sands Premium Outlets
is the largest designer outlet in the United States boasting over 110 stores. You can also find great shopping at the Destin Commons
and Grand Boulevard
Of course, you can always go to a movie. Destin has two theaters, the Rave 14+ IMAX
located in the Destin Commons and Lively Cinema 10
located beside Old Time Pottery.
You may not want to leave your condo at all. Pick up your favorite book and have a seat on your balcony. It may be raining but its the lovliest rainy view you'll ever see! If you want to order in, you have a few local options. Order a piping hot pizza, sub or pasta dish from Merlin's
or Jet's Pizza
