Spend a Day in Destin
Venture out of your Destin vacation condo and spend your time here like a local! Here’s your guide to what the locals do during a day in Destin:
9:00 AM – Power Yoga on the Beach
What better way to start your day than with a little yoga on the beach? Destin Yoga hosts several beach yoga classes throughout the week, but we love Saturday’s Power Yoga class, from 9-10:15 AM each Saturday. Anyone can participate, as you don’t need to be the most advanced yogi! Center your mind as you meditate to the sound of the waves lapping up to the shore.
11:00 AM – Brunch at First Watch Cafe
We strongly believe that brunch should be offered every day of the week, and that’s why we love First Watch! They offer everything from avocado toasts to pancakes for brunch, and chicken salad sandwiches to veggie burgers for lunch. Try the Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos, with three tortillas full of scrambled eggs, Cajun chicken, chorizo, Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses, and topped with fresh avocado and housemade pico de gallo. Finish it off with seasoned black beans – yum!
1:00 PM – Dolphin Cruise on the Hannah Marie
Everyone loves a dolphin cruise, whether you’ve lived here your whole life or you’re just here for the week. Board the Hannah Marie and relax on a cruise that will both educate and entertain you, as you’ll see dolphins playing underneath the glass-bottom boat while also learning about the history of Destin. For discounts on this excursion, check out our Southern Perks page!
5:00 PM – Dinner at Camille’s
For dinner, dine at Camille’s in the Crystal Beach community. Not only is the view gorgeous, but the food is even better! Maybe you want something classic, like a Margherita pizza, or you want to branch out and try the catch of the day. There’s something on the menu for everyone!
9:00 PM – Cocktails at Cuvee Kitchen + Wine Bar
One of our favorite places for an after-dinner cocktail is Cuvee Kitchen + Wine Bar! Featuring a mouthwatering selection of small plates and hand-crafted cocktails, we love Cuvee’s newly renovated space near Crystal Beach in Destin. Try a Croque Madame (ham, gruyere cheese, sauce mornay, brioche, farm egg, and parmesan cheese) and pair it with a Cuvee Martini. Thank us later.
