Several years ago someone at the Visitor Center recommended Goatfeathers to us, and it's our favorite! It's not a fancy place, but we go for the food.

You also can't go to Destin without visiting The Back Porch. It's right on the beach. I always get a Mahi-Mahi sandwich plate, and my s-i-law loves the Amberjack sandwich. You have to get to TBP early because it's usually very crowded.

Being from Panama City Beach, I can highly recommend Captain Anderson's Restaurant (but is it still there after last year's bug hurricane that hit? I think it was destroyed by a tornado). It is hands down the best seafood restaurant around the area. Be prepared to pay higher prices though.

The Treasure Ship is a must for anyone with kids. It's right on a marina and looks like a huge treasure ship. There are several stories and each one has a different restaurant/bar. The kids will love this place! To add to the atmosphere, there are talking parrots, free pirate hats, and even pirates! The food is great too. Go at sunset time and watch the sunset over the marina.

Hope this helps!

I can recommend Capt Anderson's(get there by 4:30-5 to avoid the wait), Shades, Goatfeather's, Bud and Alley's. Also try the Barn or Red Barn at Grayton (near Seaside).

Travel Tips for Destin

getting lucky at the bar

by richiecdisc

As the sun went down we decided to take the road we'd come on a bit further to see if it could get any better....and it did. It turned out to be a National Seashore with very little development and snow white sand on both sides of the road which seemed to run into infinity. The sun was now just about setting and our timing was perfect to enjoy the show. Without the brewpub stop we'd not only have been much earlier here if we made it at all but likely we'd have missed it entirely without the bartender's suggestion. We beamed in our luck and watched the red glow on the sand around us and then in the distance as a huge ball of fire. But once the sun has set it only brings darkness and we now had to really get on the road and find a place to stay. We passed Pensacola too quickly and even Biloxi, Mississippi came up a bit soon. We never saw any signs for cheap rooms and kept driving. We were in Louisiana before we knew it and played with the idea of going right to New Orleans but it would have been crazy to show up at that hour without a room so we were happy to see Motel Six signs in Slidell, a town about forty-five minutes from the Big Easy. It had been raining off and on for most of the ride so we were glad to finally be in a room. That was the first of many times we found out we couldn't always stay were we wanted but rather we would stay wherever we stayed.

The Swamp

by Aliseeya about The Swamp

The Swamp is a unique club in that its atmosphere drastically changes from night-to-night and between seasons. When it is very crowded (during high season), its a great place to dance, hang out, and have fun. They do have live bands, but a majority of the time dance music is played. However, when it's very slow (off season), The Swamp heavily features local bands -- making it more of a hang-out spot, with less dancing. The bands are usually garage-style punk and grunge bands. If you aren't into that type of music, do not go to the Swamp unless it's packed with people!

What I like most about The Swamp is it's layout. It is very spacious, with many bars spread out all over the place. There is a central dance floor with a stage, but also many, many places to chill with tables. There is an upstairs with has additional tables, bars, and places to dance. No matter how packed the Swamp gets, you can always find some area to relax in.

There are two downsides to this club. First, the cover is the one of the most expensives. It is $15 for 21+, and $20+ for 18-20. However, this cover does include free admission into A.J.'s, Howl-At-The-Moon, and Nighttown -- so if you're planning on club-hopping the price isn't too bad. This only applies to those 21+ -- all underagers have to pay separate covers for each place. The second downside to the Swamp is that it is VERY hit or miss. I have had amazing nights there, and other times it was horrible. Either the crowd is great, they are playing great music...or the crowd sucks, the music is amatuer punk bands, and its generally sucky. If there is a long line to get it, usually that indicates it'll be a good night. Otherwise, don't bother (unless you just want to hang out and listen to that type of music -- then it'd be fine).

You must eat at Capt. Dave's...

by SeaBreezeUSA

You must eat at Capt. Dave's on the Gulf or the Flamingo Cafe. Both have great food you will enjoy eating.
The prices are about the same for both restaurants; $16.00 - $30.00. Both have a great view of the ocean. Reservations are suggested at the flamingo, but not at Capt Dave's. Both are casual dress. The seafood is excellent at Capt. Dave's and steaks are mouth watering at the Flamingo.

Harbor walk

by Azonie

Around 5:00pm or so maybe a little later, all of the fishing boats start to come in with their catches. It's so fun to stand around and watch the fishermen/women hang up their catch of the day and take pictures. It's also so fascinating to see all of the birds that hang out down at the Marina because they all seem so unafraid of people. They just hang around and wait to get some "leftovers".

The Zoo

by Aliseeya

Honestly, I was very disappointed with this zoo.

The zoo was very shabby and run-down. The animals were in cages/areas that seemed too small for them and were not well kept. Overall, I found it very depressing. It was clear that the zoo was lacking funds...

The only reason to go is to show a small child some exotic animals. They do have giraffes, gorillas, hippos, lions, tigers, bears, monkey, etc., so I'm sure a child would enjoy it very much. They have a train that goes around a "nature animal compound" with zebras, hippos, chimps, and gorillas, but again, it was very run-down. I went with my husband, and while we did have a good time, I would not recommend it unless you are bringing children.
