Destin, Florida, is a city in Okaloosa County, Florida. It is a principal city of the Crestview–Fort Walton Beach–Destin, Florida, metropolitan area.
Destin is located on a peninsula that separates the Choctawhatchee Bay from the Gulf of Mexico, and before its days as a peninsula, Destin was actually a barrier island. Gradually over time, Hurricanes and changes in sea level connected it to the mainland once again. It wasn’t until the mid-1940s that it technically became an island again after the completion of the Choctawhatchee-West Bay Canal.
Just like their neighbors in Fort Walton Beach, Destin is considered part of Florida’s Emerald Coast, famous for its sandy white beaches and gorgeous emerald green water. Originally, Destin sprung up as a small fishing village, which has now exploded into a major tourist destination for travelers from all over the globe. According to Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection, just over eighty percent of Okaloosa county’s seven million visitors come directly to Destin.
Destin is the self-proclaimed “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village" and boasts one of the largest fishing vessel fleets in the entire world. In fact, Destin has been hosting the annual Destin Fishing Rodeo each year since 1948, bringing in thousands of eager anglers each year. Additionally, Destin is where fresh seafood and local artists gather for one weekend every October at the world-famous Destin Seafood Festival.
