Family Entertainment

Family Entertainment Means Smiles All Around

Destin is the ultimate family vacation destination. If you can drag the kids away from the beach, there are many other ways to fill happy vacation days and make lifelong memories. Stroll along the Destin Harbor Boardwalk and find an exciting water activity to enjoy, like parasailing, snorkeling, fly-boarding, a bouncy banana boat ride or a scenic dolphin cruise. Cool off at Big Kahuna's waterpark or see who has the fastest go-cart at The Track Family Recreation Center. For something more low-key, head to Okaloosa Island Fishing Pier and enjoy a quiet afternoon waiting for the big one to bite.
