It’s hard to believe that just last year, all of the 4th of July events were canceled due to COVID. But this year is a different story, and the show must go on. Staying in one of our Destin Beach vacation rentals will allow you to explore the various events. Let’s look below at how you and your family can celebrate the 4th of July this year in Destin.

Around 5:30 pm is when you can begin to sample BBQ from many local restaurants and BBQ Competitors for $1 a sample. After you sample, you can vote for your favorite, and a winner will be chosen. Before heading back to your vacation rental for the night, stay and watch the fireworks show beginning at 9:30 pm CST.
