Welcome Summer!

Since today is the official first day of summer, we thought we'd focus on ways to stay cool while you're in Destin, FL. Here's our top picks:

1) Visit Cold Stone Creamery at Destin Commons, Kilwin's at Grand Boulevard or Heavenly Shortcakes in Seaside for a deliciously cold scoop (or two) of ice cream. Or for an Italian classic, stop by San Gelato at Silver Sands for a cup of low-fat, all-natural gelato. Mmmmm!

2) Rent a boat or jet ski and head out to Crab Island. DocksideWater Sports offers Newman-Dailey guests a 10%discount on all rentals as well as a free beverage at the Ale House when you return from your adventure.

3) Spend the day at Big Kahuna's Water Park. With your Newman-Dailey gift card, you receive one complimentary adult admission.

4) Let someone else drive you to crab island to cool off. Take a 5-hour excursion aboard the SunQuest Cruises new SunVenture I, a 45 foot custom-built catamaran. Enjoy narrated tour and time to relax and play in the pristine waters. SunQuest Cruises offers Newman-Dailey guests $10 off the purchase of two or more tickets.

5) Take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico. Be sure to stay safe and check the flag warning system to confirm surf conditions are green or yellow. (Red flag means knee deep is too deep since dangerous rip currents are present. Double red means the water is closed for swimming.)
