Destin News and Events
Anglers aren't the only ones who feel lucky to be in Destin.
Destin may be "the world's luckiest fishing village," but anglers aren't the only ones who feel lucky here. Just to be able to watch the sun set from our legendary sugar-white beaches is to feel lucky. Jet-skiing out to where the dolphins play is a magical experience. And there's nothing like having a master chef serve you a dinner comprised of a succulent piece of fresh fish you caught yourself on the charter boat that morning. If shopping is your passion, bring an empty suitcase. You'll fill it up with finds at our open-air markets. Destin is the jewel of the Emerald Coast. Try it on for size.
Destin Annual Events
Harbor Walk Destin Cobia Fishing Tournament (March): A month long event that attracts hundreds of anglers from Northwest Florida. With a nickname like, "The World's Luckiest Fishing Village," great fishing tournaments and Destin naturally go hand in hand.
Seafood Festival (October): The Seafood Festival is hosted along the beautiful Destin Harbor and along our Harbor Boardwalk. With the action of the Destin Fishing rodeo right in the heart of the Festival, there will be lots of excitement along the docks. This is so much more than a festival to us -- it is a tribute to the rich history of the Destin Harbor.

You go for the beaches--those immaculate white sands against aquamarine waters. The rest of the great stuff is a bonus. The beach is Destin's playground. Still, there are other activities if you want a break from sandy toes and salty water. (Is that possible?)
