Things To Do Labor Day Weekend

 

The Beach! (Of Course)

Things to do Labor Day Weekend- The beach

When you are looking for things to do Labor Day Weekend, Destin is known for its sugary white sand and blue waters. It is a must to visit the beaches, for at least a little while. When you are on a Destin beach you will notice the sand feels like baby powder and the water (most of the time) is crystal clear. If you’re lucky you will get to observe a pod of dolphins swim by or even a manatee. Most of our vacation rentals here at Destin Palms Vacations have beachfront views or are a short walk across to the beach. The water temperature is perfect this time of year!

Friday Night Karaoke! 

Things to do Labor Day Weekend- Friday Night Karaoke

A great way to kick the Labor Day Weekend off is to go Dock On The Island to participate in some Friday night karaoke. If you love to entertain and want to find a way to let loose, then here it is! This is also an awesome activity for a girl’s trip with your closest family and friends. This is mostly a 21 or over event because they will have a happy hour during most of the time. They also serve delicious food such as homemade pizzas and plates of pasta. This event lasts from 8 PM to 12 AM.

Crab Island! 

Things to do Labor Day Weekend- Crab Island

One of the most favorite and sought after spots in Destin is a large sand bar called Crab Island. It is a sandbar that is located just South of the Marler Bridge in Destin, FL. Crab Island started to gain in popularity as boaters used the area to anchor their boats to catch some rays and wade on the sandbar. Now Crab Island has erupted into a popular social scene where locals and tourists congregate for fun and sun. Crab Island is also just minutes from the Destin Harbor. There are several ways to get out to Crab Island; you can rent a pontoon boat for the day, take a water taxi, or rent paddleboards, jet skis, etc.

Hurricane Michael Reminds Us The Importance of Travel Insurance

Unfortunately, when Mother Nature intervenes here at the beach, the only option we have is to get out of her way! We have been working hard and are dedicated to assisting our customers, neighbors, and all of those that were affected by Hurricane Michael.  We have made every effort to ensure swift communication at all times before and after the hellacious storm. Emails answered, phone calls returned, and even calling after the Storm to inform our guests that were still able to keep their reservations.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Most importantly, we would like to thank first responders and volunteers for all their hard work at this time and to help those of you who have been affected or displaced by Hurricane Michael, to the best of our ability. Please contact us for discounted lodging at (850)270-5227 or visit destin-palms.com/specials.
