What's New at the Destin Boardwalk for 2015

2015 brings exciting new change to the Destin Harbor. New waterfront shops, restaurants, and family fun attractions are now open to the public, and with the already stunning lineup of things to do, visitors have even more of a reason to head to the Destin Harbor this summer. The Destin Harbor Boardwalk, also known as "Destin Harborwalk Village", has been growing in recent years, kick started by the construction of The Emerald Grande in 2007, and continuing to add new attractions annually.

The hustle and bustle of the Harbor continues both day and night, with the buzz of fishing boats and plenty of Destin kid friendly things to do starting in the morning, and restaurants and nightclubs open late. 2015 has brought Destin vacationers new eateries like 10 on the Harbor seafood, and kids gaming headquarters Bricks & Boards toy store, but summer 2015 also presents new activities for the whole family in the Destin Harbor;

Try one of these activities on your next trip to Destin, FL!
