Fun things to do in Destin!

Vacationing in Destin isn’t your average beach trip. It’s an experience, and one that rivals some of the most amazing beaches in the world. With white sand and emerald green waters, Destin is an ideal vacation spot- and what better way to spend your vacation than doing something fun…and there are a lot of fun things to do in Destin! (Other than relaxing on the beach, of course.)

‘Renting’ fun in Destin is easy. Offering a bit of everything for vacationers (and even locals), there are plenty of options to add to your family trip.

Everyone loves scooters. They have the feel of a motorcycle but the popularity of a moped. Scooters practically scream summer vacation and are the perfect alternative to using a car to get around. They park easy and take up way less gas than the family Escalade. Fantasea Scooters is located right along Scenic Highway 98 in Miramar Beach and offers a variety of colors, as well as the ever popular ‘Scoot Cars.’ On average, a scooter rental will run you around $50/day and usually requires a deposit- but it’s worth it in the name of fun!

Dragging a bunch of bicycles on vacation is a pain. There’s the strapping to the car, possible bending of the spokes- the catastrophes that could occur are endless. The best solution offered here in Destin are bicycle rentals. Beachside Buggies, Bikes and Boards¬†offers every kind of bike you could think of- from basic cruisers, to two-seaters, to those cute little buggies that hook onto the back for your little ones, there’s something for everyone at this location. Best of all, every bicycle rental comes with a free lock- and it averages only $45/week. Talk about cheap fun!

If your vacation rental is more than a hop, skip and a jump from the beach- chances are you’re going to be in the market for a golf cart. Whether it’s the standard four seater, or a large mini-car for the entire family, Ecco Motors in Miramar Beach has options for your trip. The average rental will run you $500+ for the week, but offers the ability to have a street-legal vehicle to transport the entire family without moving the family car. These save on gas and they’re easy to park at the beach. Did we mention they’re also pretty fun to drive?

It wouldn’t be a beach vacation if you didn’t have the option of renting a boat. Whether you’re a captain, or need a captain, there are options EVERYWHERE for this type of rental. Destin Snorkel offers a chartered experience for several people, while Legendary Marine will give you a step by step tutorial on how to operate their machinery. It’s a much different experience than fishing on the bay, and well worth the price of admission.


These rentals are just the tip of the iceberg. In Destin, you have access to just about every bit of rentable fun you can handle- from kayaks to jet skis, motorcycles to convertibles- the best thing to do is decide on your own definition of fun, set a budget, and reach for the gold. If you think it’s rentable, chances are you’ll find it in Destin.
