Did you start dreading the day in front of you as soon as you woke up?

Did you feel bummed out when your feet hit the floor knowing that work would soon be your reality?

Did you wish your shower could have been a long soak in a jacuzzi tub rather than a blast of reality hitting you in the face?

ClassicFeetPicWho hasn’t experienced that at some time in their lives? Would you like to break away from that grind long enough to refresh yourself, get a second wind, spend some time stretched out and relaxing rather than feeling like a ball of stress wound tight?

We know you’re grateful for what you have but we also know that being grateful doesn’t make the grind any easier. Don’t feel guilty for needing a break. Everyone does. It’s essential to your health and well being. Ask a doctor!

There’s a reason why so many people retreat to the beach every year. Some of our best minds have expressed their thoughts on vacations:

“A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.”  ~Earl Wilson

“A vacation is having nothing to do and all day to do it in.”  ~Robert Orben

“I learned a long time ago that trying to manage the perfect vacation is always a disaster. That leads to terrible times.”  ~Anthony Bourdain

Without a doubt the beaches in Destin are the best you can find without a passport!

A fantastic thing about them is not only do they provide a natural stress reliever with their beauty but they also reward us with some of the most amazing food.

Known for some of the most bountiful waters of any where on the planet, Destin Florida has been called the Luckiest Fishing Village in the World because of the quality and quantity of the types of sea life that can be found just off our pristine shoreline in the sparkling waters of the Gulf.

This means our little coastal paradise, renowned for our wide range of freshly caught, delicious seafood, including fish, crabs, and shrimp to name a few, provides the perfect opportunity for your family to savor authentic gulf cuisine at many unique, world class eateries close by to the Palms of Destin Resort.

Another awesome way to savor the local flavors is to head down to Destin Harborwalk, where you will find the largest fleet of privately owned fishing charter vessels of anywhere else in the nation. Yes, we take fishing very seriously around these parts.

At the wharf you can pick up the freshest seafood ingredients, right off the boat from which they were caught, to bring back to your suite’s fully equipped kitchen!

One of our very favorite ways to serve our gulf delicacies, is not only full of bright flavors and fresh ingredients, quintessentially Florida, but it’s also great to serve on one of our hot afternoons as you watch the sun set over our pristine beaches from your private balcony.
