We’ve all been there, you plan your trip to the beautiful sunny beaches of the Emerald Coast and…it’s not so sunny. The good news is rain doesn’t tend to last long here. While you wait there are so many great rainy day activities in the Destin and 30A area.

Destin Commons is packed with tons of rainy day fun. You can spend the whole day
enjoying some of the best shopping and dining in Destin. The salted caramel ice
cream at Kilwins is a personal favorite. One of the newest additions is Uncle Buck’s
Fishbowl, featuring an under the sea themed bowling alley and bar; or head on over
to the AMC Theater and snuggle up for a rainy day movie.

Head on down to Harborwalk Village for dining and shopping along the Destin
Harbor. You can always catch live music with some of the best views in Destin, along
with boutique shopping and delicious food.

Brand new to the area is Wild Willy’s in Fort Walton Beach, featuring a state of the
art arcade, 4D Movie Theater, laser maze, and Salvati’s Pizza Factory. When the rain
stops you can also enjoy a ropes course, mini golf, roller coaster and a reverse
bungee trampoline. The kids will love this place!

This brand new arcade features a 3500 square foot 2 level laser tag arena and the
most advanced games on the market. It’s sure to provide entertainment for kids and
adults of all ages.

Throw on some neon attire and head to the Rainforest Black Light Golf and Arcade
for some glow in the dark fun.

Put on your thinking cap and head to Escapology, with a variety of themed rooms
that are sure to entertain while testing your problem solving skills.

Between concerts, festivals, and special events there is always something going on
at the Village of Baytowne Wharf. With amazing restaurants, shopping and an
arcade and laser tag arena for the kids, there is something for everyone.

Let’s be honest half of vacation is about the food. If you feel the same, Emerald Coast
Food tours will be right up your alley. With tours around 30A and Miramar Beach in
Destin you will leave stuffed and sure to have some new local favorites.

If you are looking for a more relaxing day, Scenic 30A is for you. Located just to the
east of Destin, you can spend hours dining and shopping at local vendors. Goat
Feathers has been a local favorite for the last 30 years; it’s unique and just plain
delicious. Shunk Gulley is my personal favorite, with gorgeous views even in the

These are just a few of many great options! If you would like a recommendation personalized for your group, give our office a call, we will always be glad to help you plan the perfect rainy day until you can get back out on those beautiful beaches.
