Anything you need is here. I always try to find a walmart when I am out on vacation. It seems a bit more expensive at this particular one though, I guess because it's a tourist town. Anyway, we made several trips. Groceries, beach toys, anything you need. And it's located right off the highway by Fudpuckers.
What to buy: Anything
This boutique located in the City Market has great lines for women looking for contemporary items. The store features lines by Milly, Rebecca Taylor, Poleci, Rachel Pally, Nanette Lepore, Velvet, 3 dot and awesome jeans. They only go up to size 12 but there is much more to buy other than just clothes. They have handbags, jewelry, hanky panky and a plasma for the guys to watch while the women shop. I loved this store and thought the girls were so helpful.
What to buy: Amy Tangerine tee's, Tag jeans, Vince basics
What to pay: High end so it's not for someone on a budget.
You can buy your entire supply of swimsuits, coverups, beach chairs, towels and cheesey beach trinkets at one of the dozens of shops on the main strip in Destin. They always seem to be promoting something like 5 T-shirts for 10 dollars.
You'll run right into this outlet mall if you stay on Old Highway 98. They have everything from the Gap to a Gellatteria (very refreshing). You can find just about anything you need there. I usually end up buying several pairs of shoes because I get such great deals on them.
There seems to be a Wing's store on just about every corner. They're fun to shop around, but try not to spend too much time. It's easily done.
What to buy: Go here if you're looking for a souvenir or a new bathing suit.
