Memorial Day is just around the corner, and you know what that means. Summer is here! So it’s time to start planning your summer bucket list.

At Southern Rentals & Real Estate, we’re already packing the sunscreen and beach towels and getting ready for two months of water-filled adventure. Don’t let August sneak up and leave you wondering where the summer went; make the most of it with a beach vacation!

At the top of our list are three outdoor activities, perfect for the whole family.  Now, you won’t have to wonder about things to do in Destin, Pensacola Beach, or Gulf Shores. Plus, you’ll have insider deals.

  1. Parasailing

What’s better than the feeling of flying? This summer, take in a birds-eye view of the emerald water of the Gulf of Mexico with a parasailing adventure. Not to mention, you’ll spot dolphins, sting rays, sea turtles and more as you fly above the emerald water over Coastal Alabama and Northwest Florida. Our local Perks Partner, Chute for the Skye offers 10% off when you stay with Southern.

  1. Paddle-boarding

For an up-close and personal look below the surface of the Gulf’s crystal clear water, strike out on a paddle-boarding tour. Not only will you gain an unprecedented perspective of marine life, you’ll also get a killer ab and arm workout. Of course, you can always stop paddling and float on the board—letting the waves gently carry you to shore. For a $25 discount, call SUPdogs Paddle Board Rentals in Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key—an exclusive Southern Perks deal.

3. Putt Around in a Pontoon Boat

For something a little more low-key, rent a pontoon boat for the day and head over to Crab Island. Crab Island is legendary in Destin. Right beneath the Destin Bridge, it’s a crystal clear, shallow water area where hundreds of boats drop anchor and everyone has a good time. Most days, you’ll find a floating burger shack and inflatable obstacle course too. La Dolce Vita, a Southern Perks Partner, offers 10% off rentals (including jet skis, beach chairs, and golf carts too).

So no matter what makes your summer bucket list, the first step is to book your beach vacation rental with Southern Rentals & Real Estate today!
