World's Luckiest Fishing Village
With emerald water and white beaches, Destin is one of America's favorite vacation destinations. The city originated as a small fishing village, but today tourists from all over the world flock here to enjoy itineraries filled with dolphin cruises, snorkeling, and superb sailing. The city boasts a lively nightlife scene, and when the sun sets, beachfront bars and seafood restaurants are abuzz with activity. The sand of Destin's idyllic beaches is considered to be some of the whitest in the world; made up of finely ground quartz crystal, it resembles sugar.
