Destin, Florida ~ 5 Gulf Coast Fun things to do for All Ages!

Destin, Florida ~ Gulf Coast Fun for Everyone

I have had the pleasure of visiting Destin, Florida twice in the past year. When I think of Destin, I think of Gulf Coast fun for everyone. Whether you are visiting as a couple or as a family….there is something to do for all ages. Or, even if you don’t want to do anything and just want to relax…you can do that too.

We just wanted to do some relaxing on the beach this time around, but here is a list of my favorite things to do for some Gulf Coast Fun and more can be found at You definitely don’t want to miss the sunset, my favorite pastime no matter how many times I have seen them.





Big Kahuna’s  Water Park

If you are traveling in the summertime, this might be on the top of your list. Florida summers can get kind of warm, and what better way to spend the day then at the water park. Big Kahuna’s has many different things to choose from, like water slides, Honolulu Half Pipes, Thunder River, Wave pools, Kiddie areas with fun fountains and Pleasure Island, or even the Super Speed Raceway, Tropical Mini Golf or if you are daring enough…..the Sky Coaster.

The Track

With it’s Go Cart Track, Mini Golf, Kid’s Country and my favorite the Bumper Rides, or go all out with the Big Thrills and go Bungee Jumping, it’s sure to please everyone of all ages.


The Gulfarium

If you want to spend some quieter time, you can visit the Gulfarium. There you get close and personal with some of my favorite like the dolphins, Sea Lions, Turtles, and even hold an alligator.

Beach Sand Sculptures

Have some fun building sand sculptures with Rick the Sandman, where you can have a custom sandcastle building session. Who doesn’t love to build sand castles?

Dockside Watersports

Here you have a selection of a couple different things to choose from, depending upon what you are up for that day. Will it be parasailing, jet ski & boat rentals, and dolphin tours on jet skis. We saw quite a few dolphins and no matter how many times I see them, I’m like a little kid when I do, it’s so amazing.

There are also plenty of restaurants with some great food to eat at, for instance Pompano Joe’s, Jim N Nicks BBQ (one of my favorites), 723 Whiskey Bravo, HarborWalk Village (a lot of stuff to do there besides eat), just to name a few.
