#3 - Destin Track
The third most popular attraction in Destin is the Destin Track Family Recreational Center. This family fun center is full of – you guessed it – fun for the whole family! Activities include Go-Karts, bumper cars and blaster boats, a Ferris wheel, thrill rides, and mini-golf. Challenge your family to a Go-Kart race, watch your kids get soaked on the blaster boats, and slow things down with a round of putt-putt on the tropical-themed golf course. With so many activities, it’s easy to lose track of time, spending an entire fun-filled day here with family and friends.
#2 - Big Kahuna’s
Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park is a great way to cool off during your Destin vacation. The park offers everything from water slides, pools, rides, and water play areas. The lazy river is the perfect way to slow things down and relax. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, take a ride on the 5-story Jumanji or Maui Pipeline. Other activities include the giant wave pool, simulated surfing on the Honolulu Half Pipe, and mini-golf. Finally, the Buccaneer Cave, Pleasure Island, and kiddie rides prove that Big Kahuna’s has something for the whole family.
#1 - The Beach
It’s no surprise that the number one attraction in Destin is the beautiful, pristine, crystalline beach. After all, the beach is the reason most people visit this coastal paradise. And why wouldn’t it be? The sandy shores are snow-white, stretching for miles as far as the eye can see. The emerald Gulf waves are calm and warm, so it’s almost like swimming in the world’s biggest spa. With the added bonus of the Florida sun shining down and sea life joining in the fun, of course! There is so much to do on the beach, including sun tanning, relaxing under a colorful umbrella reading a book, building a sandcastle, playing beach volleyball, paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, and so much more!
If you check out these top three Destin attractions during your Avalon Beach vacation, you’ll be sure to make incredible memories and have the best trip. Enjoy!
