Replace the White Snow with White Sand
Snow is beautiful but the white sand here in Destin looks just like snow, only we have one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the sun to go with it!
The beach is definitely the biggest attraction for tourists and locals alike, and one of the best Destin snowbird activities 2021 is simply enjoying the beach. From sunsets, to sunrises nothing says serene like a walk down the beach while the warm air surrounds you. During the winter months here in Destin, you can avoid large crowds and traffic which is another bonus for our snowbirds!
If you want to take a dip, the gulf may be a bit too cold to swim in but nearly all condo’s and vacation rentals in the area offer heated pools for you to enjoy.
If you want to enjoy activities outside of the beach, we got you covered there too!
It’s safe to say you probably don’t see too many dolphins in the North, so this could be a fun Destin snowbird activity 2021!
If boats are not your thing, no need to worry! You can still visit Flipper and friends at the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, located on Okaloosa Island (approx. 10 miles West of Destin).
