Emerald Coast Bucket List

There are many reasons to love the Emerald Coast! The sugar white sand beaches and emerald green water is the obvious reason, but we were recently reminded of the many things to do in and around Destin that we haven't tried yet.

The Northwest Florida Daily News recently compiled the "Emerald Coast Bucket List" filled with all the incredible activities and adventures to be had in Destin, Florida. Here's their top 10: 
1. Spend sun up to sun down on the beach.
2. Enjoy a bonfire in Walton County (with a permit, of course).
3. Drink a Bushwhacker while watching a Destin sunset.
4. See the Northwest Florida Ballet’s production of the Nutcracker.
5. Volunteer for one of the many non-profits (we'd add participate in a Coastal Clean-Up).
6. Take the Northwest Florida Wine Tour.
7. Rent a cabin at the Grayton Beach State Park.
8. Go on an Animal Encounter at the Gulfarium or a Behind-the-Scenes Animal Tour at the Gulf Breeze Zoo.
9. Window shop (or really shop) at the Festival of the Arts.
10. Go fishing off the Okaloosa Island Pier or Navarre Beach Pier.

Click here to read the full list of fun experiences to try (and we'd add Fly Boarding, Destin's newest water sport, to the list too.)
