Where We Are

Destin is located Northwest Florida between Pensacola and Panama City Beach. Ranked #2 on Southern Living's list of the South's Best Beach Towns, Destin is renowned for its dazzling sugar white sand beaches and emerald green waters, which have earned the area the moniker Emerald Coast.

To the east of Destin, 16 beach neighborhoods comprise the beaches of South Walton, which includes the famed Scenic Highway 30A where the Truman Show was filmed in Seaside. With a paved bike path along Scenic Highway 30A, visitors can head out on two wheels and explore popular beach towns, including Santa Rosa Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Grayton Beach and Seaside, among many others.
