Destin Ranked Top Florida Beach According to US News & World Report

Posted on Monday, September 15, 2014

Beach Access

Locals consider the beaches of Destin the best in Florida and even among the best in the world. So it is especially exciting when others rank our beaches #1 too!  US News & World Report Travel listed Destin as #1 on the “Best Florida Beaches” list.

The ranking combines user votes and expert insight to rank Florida beaches on attributes such as aesthetics, atmosphere and conveniences, among other characteristics. The US News & World Report website provides a detailed Destin Travel Guide, which includes the “Best Things to Do in Destin”, “Best Hotels in Destin”, “Best Airfares to Destin” and “When to Visit.” The website also features “Destin Travel Tips” and while we agree with most of the tips, locals will tell you the best time of year to visit is fall.

Locals consider fall the most beautiful time of year in Destin, Fla. In contrast to the report, spring and fall have equal average rainfall, and summer’s afternoon showers make summer the wettest season. In the fall, the air is cool but the water is warm and inviting for swimming. Summer crowds are a distant memory and sparsely populated white sand beaches are a welcome sight for beach lovers. The spectacular fall sunsets and the migration of the Monarch butterfly make the fall season visually stunning. In addition, the calendar is filled with fall events, including wine festivals, art exhibitions and nature excursions, making a trip to Destin in the fall a cherished tradition for many.

Regular visitors to the area know that staying in a Destin vacation rental is the way to go. From one bedroom condos to spacious five bedroom Destin beach houses, vacation rentals provide all the conveniences of home, including full kitchen with refrigerator and dishwasher, living and dining room, and washer/dryer.

As an added bonus, guests of Newman-Dailey receive the Newman-Dailey Gift Card, good toward area activities, attractions and free movie rentals.

Explore our vacation rentals online or call one of our friendly vacation specialists at 1-800-225-7652 and ask about our 3FOR15* and 4FOR20* special fall promotion to see if your stay qualifies for added discounts on top of the already low season rates.

Make plans to come see why Destin is ranked the top beach in Florida!
