About Destin

The coastal town Destin is famous for its white-sand beaches and emerald green waters. The area started as a small fishing village, known as "The World's Luckiest Fishing Village", is a popular tourist destination. In fact, statistics show that more than 80% of the Emerald Coast’s yearly tourists visit Destin. Destin is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and water in the entire United States and it is no wonder why real estate is so popular. There is a huge draw every year during the summer months of tourists from all locations.

The peak season is between Memorial Day and Labor Day and spring and early fall bring some of the area’s most gorgeous weather and is considered midseason.  Destin’s off-season is between November and March.  During these months the mild temperatures and beautiful weather draw Snowbirds that escape the cold of northern states and Canada.

The majority of Destin Florida real estate consists of beachfront high-rise condos in central Destin and Gulf front homes and condos with private and public beach access on beautiful Holiday Isle.

Many Destin residents live on the north side of Highway 98 in the residential subdivisions and around some of the area's premier golf course communities. Highly sought-after quaint Crystal Beach boasts gorgeous homes both new and old on the south side of Highway 98.
