A Weekend on the Emerald Coast

We made an impromptu trip to SanDestin Florida to meet some of our best friends from Louisiana Brian and Ashley Patureau. They were in SanDestin for a work event and invited us to tag along. We’ve been to SanDestin and Destin many times over the years but this was our first time back to this area in over five years. We stayed at the SanDestin Golf and Beach Resort which was in walking distance of the Baytowne Wharf. We grabbed lunch at Hammerhead’s restaurant before heading back to the resort to hang out in the pool. It was so great to spend some time with friends from back home as at this point in time I was 15 weeks pregnant with our daughter. The timing was perfect.

That evening we headed into downtown Destin to enjoy dinner at Jackacudas. The location was great – right along the marina. We sat outside and enjoyed watching the booze cruises come and go for the night. There are so many things to do in the area from restaurant bars and shops to zip lines.

The next day, we hung out at the beach and enjoyed the crystal blue water and sugar white sand the Emerald Coast has to offer.

After some fun in the sun we rented a pontoon boat and headed out to Crab Island. This place is perfect for people watching – hundreds of boats meet up at the sandbar and hangout. There are even floating restaurants and bars. We spent the afternoon floating around and people watching before heading back to the resort for the night.

Bottom line:

Destin is a destinations full of life. It’s certainly not a place to go for a quiet beach getaway but it’s perfect for when you want to hang out at the beach all day and party the night away.
