Destin is older than the majority of tourists think. Destin is more than a destination to surprise even though it was only recently incorporated as a city in 1984. The city dates back to the 7th century when Native Americans settled the area. And only in the 16th century with the arrival of Spanish explorers, more precisely Don Franisco Tapia, was Destin introduced to the world.
The city's past is often passed over for the multitude of beautiful beaches, golf courses, and best restaurants. Only its Victorian architecture along the coast makes Destin look older. This orderly looking coastline even served as the setting for the Jim Carrey movie The Truman Show.
This especially fueled tourist interest in the resort and more than four million visitors come for unforgettable vacation in Destin annually. Destin is a right place for non-stop rest because its beaches are the whitest in the world. This is possible due to location against Appalachian Mountains that are source of sugar-white quartz crystal.
As you are in Destin, check its calendar of events because there is always something going on like the Destin Fishing Rodeo held each year from October, 1948, or Destin Seafood Festival with its tasty specialties.
After a dose of fun in Destin, you should experience its hospitality. Thus, consider advance booking of Destin hotel at Booked.net.
