Do you and your family want something fun to do during Valentine’s Day weekend? Come to the Sandestin Gumbo Festival on February 14th and February 15, 2020. Happening at the Village of Baytowne Wharf happens to be one of the largest events in the area. This year will be the 31st year it has been going on and is one to not miss. You and the family can enjoy some excellent gumbo from several different Gulf Coast Restaurants during this event. And there will be other activities that the kids can take part in too.

Harborwalk Village Mardi Gras

February in Destin Beach is one of the best times to visit because of the Mardi Gras events happening around town. On Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm is where your family can come and enjoy the Mardi Gras Parade & Pawdi Gras. This may not be New Orleans, but it will be just as fun as if you were watching the parade on Bourbon Street, but more family friendly. There will be other fun events going on through the day that you won’t want to miss either!

Beach Activities that are Family-Friendly

Are you and your family coming to Destin Beach for your next vacation? We at Holiday Isle can tell you about some beach activities that are family-friendly. When staying with us in one of our Destin Beach vacation Rentals, you will be close to where the fun can happen. Let’s look below at some of the beach activities that are family-friendly.

Scavenger Hunt

Beach Activities that are Family-Friendly

Destin Beach is a wonderful place where you and your family can do a scavenger hunt together. Before leaving your vacation rental for the day, you will want to take a piece of paper and put together a list that the family can look for. Then it will be time to head to the beach and hunt for your treasure. The kids can look for different color shells, something blue, sea glass, driftwood and more. One the map, have a list of the items that they can find and mark them off as you find them. This is a fun activity to do and something that everyone in the family will love doing!

Look at that Sandcastle

One thing that many families have done in the past is build a sandcastle. But just because you aren’t a kid anymore, doesn’t mean that you as the parent have to stop building one. This is a great activity that anyone in the family can do while you are on vacation and is good for all ages. To help build their sandcastles you are going to make sure that everyone has a bucket, shovel and shells to build their dream sandcastle. Take a family picture of everyone’s castle and frame it when you get back home to remember that great day you had on your vacation.

Soccer Time

Beach Activities that are Family-Friendly

Playing soccer on the beach is one of the best games you can play as a family. Make sure that you bring a soccer ball with you on your vacation so that you can see who the best team is. Either split up into teams or kick the ball back and forth for a while just to get in some exercise. No matter who wins the game or who can play the longest, everyone in the family are winners!

Beach Ball Bounce

Another great game that the whole family can get in on, is beach ball bounce. You can play this game by having two players on each side while they are holding a beach towel. Then use the beach towel as your “racket” to catch and toss the beach ball back and forth to the other team. What a great way to get your exercise because we can promise you that the ball won’t go the way you want it to get each time. Just have fun and learn to work together on this activity!

There are several other activities that can be played on the beach, but these are just a few we wanted to share with you. If you haven’t booked your next family vacation to Destin Beach, now is the time to. School will be back soon, and we hope that you and your family can enjoy your vacation before the busy season begins.
