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.
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.
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
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.
Anytime you go on vacation doing fun things with the family can be fun yet a little pricey. We fully understand that, and we thought that we would share with you a few free things that you can do while on vacation. Staying in one of our Beach Front vacation rentals can help you save money as you can fix meals at the house and take advantage of the free things to do around town. Let’s look at our top 4 things you can do for free while on vacation to Destin, Florida.
Jolee Island Nature
Jolee Island Nature Park is a hidden gem within Destin and
has some fun things that your family can enjoy. This park is 5 acres located on
an island and to enter the park you will have to go over a wooden bridge. As
you cross over the bridge you will be able to see a scenic salt marsh and even
get to see nature at it’s best. You may see different animals in the marsh and
take beautiful pictures too of the sunset. The park does offer the children a
pirate ship playground and it is surrounded by porch swings for the adults to
sit back and relax. And best of all it’s free to enjoy! Jolee Island Nature
Park has a picnic area for you and your family to enjoy a lunch among nature.
Don’t miss this amazing place next time you are on your vacation!
If you have ever been to the beach during the summer months
as a child, then you may remember going to the boardwalk often. Going to Destin
Harbor Boardwalk is like any other boardwalk out there, but you get to enjoy
several different things going on these during the week. Here you can walk
along the boardwalk all while you can enjoy the white sand and the Emerald
Coast waterfront. This is something that not many other beach towns can talk
about! Soak in the sun, fun, smells and adventure that you can enjoy on your
next vacation to Destin and going to spend a few hours at the boardwalk.
Day at the Beach
A fun free activity that you can do while on vacation is to head to the beach right outside of your Beach Front vacation rental. Here you and your family can enjoy a day or all week sitting on the beach in the white sand soaking up the rays. Plus, you can save money by being able to head back into your rental and have a nice lunch and then head back out onto the beach for more fun. Let the kids build sandcastles as you sit in a beach chair reading a nice book. The options are endless when you visit the beach in Destin, Florida.
Henderson Beach State Park
Another amazing park that you and your family can go explore
is Henderson Beach State Park. Located along the Emerald Coast Parkway is where
you will find this amazing park that has pristine white sand and gorgeous water
views. One thing that you may be able to spot while you are taking a dip in the
water are dolphins in the distance. There are plenty of things that you can do at
the park like hiking along the shoreline on a nature trail or standing on top
of the high dunes. This can be a fun day to spend at the park and it’s free of
charge to enjoy there too.
