Known for our white sand beaches, Destin is the picture-perfect vacation spot this summer. Enjoy basking in the Florida sun next to the ocean in the most perfect way possible. 

Where to Stay 

There is always a supply of vacation places to stay in Destin, but you want to make sure you have a room with a view! With every condo having its own private 30-foot balcony with a beachfront view, we can’t think of a better place to stay than our beautiful condominium Destin Gulfgate. Tucked away in the heart of the Emerald Coast, Destin Gulfgate offers 465 linear feet of unobstructed, private beach for our guests. And with only 44 units, you can expect the ultimate peaceful vacation when you stay. The best part is that each reservation includes a complimentary beach set-up of two chairs and an umbrella (starting March 1st and ending on the Sunday after Thanksgiving)!

What to Eat

After you check in and drop your bags at Destin Gulfgate, head to The Back Porch for the perfect seafood dinner. Enjoy the Gulf views while dining on raw oysters, grilled grouper, shrimp po'boys, and more! The following day before you head to the beach, grab a coffee from The Palms Coffeehouse! Grab a delicious latte and some small bites to fuel your day. 


During your stay, be sure to check out some of these other fantastic restaurants located just a stone's throw away from your condo:






What To Do

Ready to cool down from the beach? There are tons of fun activities within walking distance for you and the family to do! 


Just across the street is The Track Family Fun Park, the perfect place for adventure with the whole family! You’ll find go-kart tracks, two mini golf courses, blaster boats, bumper cars, and more. Once you finish racing to your heart's desire, head to the adjoining arcade, Fat Daddy’s Arcade. Enjoy classic arcade games and interactive action-packed games! Keep the action going with a visit to Destin Laser Tag to play laser tag in their 4000 square feet maze. 


Not into arcades or go-karts? Just one mile away from Destin Gulfgate is Big Kahuna’s Water & Adventure! Known as the largest water park on the Emerald Coast, enjoy a float down the lazy river, or be daring and go down one of their speed slides! Big Kahuna’s is sure to keep the fun going for hours. While the kids play, mom can head to the Silver Sands Premium Outlets to shop till she drops! Find stores like J Crew Factory, LOFT, and Nike, among over 100 other stores. You will never be bored during your Destin vacation!
