Get Outdoors in Destin with Some of the Best All-Year Round Activities

With some of the most spectacular scenery in the country, you’ve just got to get yourself outdoors to enjoy it all. Of course, its location on the Emerald Coast does give you plenty of awesome seaside options, but there’s more to having fun in the sun than just getting into the water. Whether you have a preference for more physical activities or just chilling with great food and drinks, we’ve rounded up a list of our top favorite outdoor activities in Destin just for you:

Hiking at Henderson Beach State Park

There’s more to hiking than meets the eye, and when you’ve got the spectacular Henderson Beach State Park to discover and explore, you’ll probably want to go outdoors every weekend. With the Emerald Coast just beckoning you to jump in for a swim, you’ll get to enjoy oceanfront views for miles around, and if such a brilliant blue doesn’t tug at your heartstrings, nothing will. 

Location: 17000 Emerald Coast Pkwy, Destin, FL 32541

Opening Hours: 8 a.m. until Sunset (7 Days a Week)

Visiting Downtown Fort Walton Beach Farmer's Market

Imagine the fresh air, the hustle and bustle of vendors and customers and delicious smells wafting through the air. If that does the trick to get you drooling, just head on over to Fort Walton Beach Landing Park every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month to enjoy yourself. Here, you can easily find produce and products from local vendors, artisans, craftsmen and farmers from the region.

Location: 139 Brooks St SE, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548

Opening Hours: 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (every 2nd and 4th Sat)

Picnicking at Clement Taylor Park

Of course, there will be benches to plonk yourself down on and even grills if you want some fresh hot food to savor, but picnicking is very much about chilling, eating and having a great time outdoors. This park is a great place for the whole family, so why not make it an excursion every other weekend? Of course, the more the merrier, and at 3.55-acres, there’s more than enough space for everyone and more.

Location: 131 Calhoun Ave, Destin, FL 32541

Opening Hours: Sunrise to Sunset (7 Days a Week)

Join 5K Hunger Run and Kids Fun Run

Proceeds from this race will go towards Niceville Sharing and Caring, so you’re really running for a good cause. It’s a great way to stay fit and meet new people, and there’s even a kid’s fun run right after the 5K. After the race, Bluewater Fitness will be hosting a fun after-party that everyone can enjoy too. All in all, this is a race to look forward to and a healthy way to start your outdoor adventures in April.

Location: Starts at White Point Rd, Florida 32578

Starting Time & Date: 6 April 2019. Starts at 8 a.m.
