Top 5 Reasons to Celebrate Mother's Day at the Beach in South Walton and Destin, Florida

Mom deserves a break, and now is the perfect time to show her love and appreciation. At Newman-Dailey, we specialize in celebrating family time. Our comfortable 30A, Miramar Beach, Crystal Beach and Destin vacation rentals provide the perfect home away from home to relax and reconnect with family. Our guests consistently tell us that their beach getaway provided their family with much-needed quality time together. If you're still not convinced a beach vacation is the best Mother's Day Gift for Mom, here are our top 5 reasons to whisk Mom away to the beach for Mother’s Day:

Remove Temptation to Work

If you celebrate Mom at home, she’ll feel compelled to continue with her usual chores—cooking, cleaning, laundry, etc. Sure our vacation rentals have a laundry room with washer and dryer, but she’ll enjoy the vacation mentality. By taking her on a Destin vacation, she’ll feel like she has permission to relax and enjoy the moment.

Fresh Gulf Seafood & Scenic Views

If you’re planning to take mom out to dinner, consider the joys of ordering fresh Gulf Seafood, which was caught and brought in on the docks that day. In fact, at Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer each seafood meal has a QRCode so diners can see just where their meal was caught and when. And with many of the South Walton and Destin restaurants offering stunning views of the Gulf and Destin Harbor, the view alone will make Mom feel relaxed and happy. If you prefer to stay in, Destin restaurants also offer take-out options allowing you to bring the delectable offerings back home for your crew to dine alfresco on the deck or inside your private vacation rental.



Sure Mom can shop in her hometown, but it’s so much more fun to shop at boutiques filled with one-of-a-kind treasures that nobody will have back at home. Or even better, take Mom to Silver Sands Premium Outlets where she’ll find designer merchandise for a fraction of the price. From art galleries to boutique shops to town centers, including Grand Boulevard at Sandestin and Destin Commons, there are tons of options for Mom to find the perfect gift for herself. Looking for a personalized, commemorative gift? Consider scheduling a class at artist Mary Hong's Shard Shop in Grayton Beach to make an original piece of art with mom, and create memories that will last a lifetime.   

Chelsea Sunset


There is just something special about watching the sky turn into a colorful canvas as the sun sets into the Gulf of Mexico. Whether you’re enjoying this evening tradition from your balcony, the beach, or a local restaurant, sunset at the beach is a wonderful tradition that Mom will cherish.
