This is the place to be if you are looking for a fun time here in Destin! There’s so much to do, I’m sure you won’t be able to fit it all in one trip. Here are my top picks:
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville
Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, is located right in along the Destin Harbor. Margaritaville is more than a restaurant; it’s a state of mind. Margaritaville has great food with an island flair, four unique and lively bars, local live music, and two levels of outdoor seating which overlook the amazingly beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
Their menu invites its guests to kick back and enjoy house-made margaritas, frozen boat drinks, and cold LandShark Lager. Compliment this with any one of their signature food items like the Cheeseburger in Paradise, Key West Chicken Quesadilla, and Volcano Nachos. This is the perfect location for a day of family fun! When the sun goes down, Margaritaville transforms into a late-night scene with dancing and live music from any one of a number of our many talented local musicians every night of the week
Boathouse Oyster Bar
The Boathouse Oyster Bar is one of Destin’s legendary establishments. Located at the east end of the Destin Harbor Boardwalk, the Boathouse offers anything from delicious seafood to mouth-watering burgers and fresh salads all come with a spectacular water view of the Destin Harbor. Come visit us to see why we have been a Destin favorite and voted Best Oysters and Gumbo for the past 30 years.
AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar
Starting way back in 1984, AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar has been serving Gulf Coast oysters and cool drinks to thousands of visitors each year. What began as a popular local hangout has grown into one of Destin’s most iconic “hot spots” on the Destin Harbor.
From their humble beginnings shucking oysters off the deck behind a small trailer to having expanded to four locations along Florida’s Emerald Coast. Aj’s continues serving the freshest seafood, along with hosting the hottest bands like Destin favorites Black-Eyed Blonde.
The Destin Boardwalk has been a favorite spot for tourists to spend the day enjoying the many water-sports activities or just taking a stroll. Bring on the food, the shopping, and most importantly the entertainment! We have a wide variety of activities, including parasailing, jet skiing, dolphin tours, charter fishing and so much more!
