DESTIN: “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” on the Emerald Coast of the Northwest Florida Panhandle…
A short drive from most major metropolitan areas in the Southeast with stunning beaches, challenging golf courses and world-famous fishing define the city of Destin and the Emerald Coast. On the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida, Destin is rightfully famed for its sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters. Due to its plentiful and always hungry underwater population, Destin is widely known as the “world’s luckiest fishing village.”
No longer a secret for only those in the Deep South, this non-typical fishing village has grown into so much more than simply watching fishing charters unload their catch of the day and strolling on the sugar white sand beaches, clear emerald green water. Destin also harbors world-class resorts and rentals, and some of the best shopping and dining. Flying into the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport makes it easy to reach the Florida Panhandle vacation destination.
With an abundance of outdoor activities Destin offers something for everyone! Paddle boarding, boating, scuba diving, golfing, listing to live music and watching weekly fireworks displays and more are available the majority of the year. Wine, Art, and Beer Festivals are fan favorites and the month of October hosts the annual Fishing Rodeo. Water parks, bumper boats, miniature golf, laser tag, go karting, zip lining, and rock climbing are many of the activities enjoyed by families. Catch a deep sea fishing charter, dolphin cruise or head out on a Pirate Ship cruise for the kiddos. Grab a bite and watch the sunset while enjoying fresh catch from one of the many waterfront restaurants. Destin continues to be a great investment for those who desire the beach lifestyle. Come enjoy the laid back lifestyle.

SEAFOOD & WINE
DEWEY DESTIN’S – The Destin family and Destin, Florida have been intertwined since Dewey’s great, great grandfather, Leonard Destin, founded the town in 1835. The adventure began a few years earlier when Leonard, his father George, and his brother William set out from New London, Connecticut with three ships and ran into a hurricane near Cape Canaveral, Florida.
Today the Destin family and friends, using original Destin and Gulf Coast recipes, are proud to serve seafood and other favorite area side dishes to local friends and out-of-town guests alike. While we maintain a casual atmosphere, we are serious about great tasting food. Therefore, Dewey makes it a practice not to use food warming lamps which he feels turns quality fish into chewy and rubbery leftovers. Only when the food is just right do we bring it to your table… which sometimes means that certain items may arrive before others are ready (especially when busy). Please relax, enjoy the view, the weather, the company of fellow diners, and remember our promise as various portions of your order arrive. CHECK OUT THEIR NEWEST LOCATION IN NAVARRE BEACH.
