We’ve put together our favorite romantic and fun things to do in Destin with your significant other, best friend, or family.
Explore Art Museums
The Shard Shop: This trendy make-your-own-ShardArt boutique with locations in Destin & Grayton Beach, is filled with nothing but glass that you can make your own Mary Hong inspired art piece.

Seaside offers a number of galleries worth stepping into, Fusion Art Glass features some of the world’s finest artists in limited production art glass and couture jewelry and Gordie Hinds Art hosts contemporary coastal artwork by local, regional and national artists.
Try a New Restaurant
What better time than Valentine's Day should you and your significant other (or family!) go outside your comfort zone and try out new food?
We recommend Emeril's Coastal Italian at Grand Boulevard, Cafe Tango in Santa Rosa Beach, Fish Out of Water inside the WaterColor Inn along Scenic HWY 30A, or Boshamps on the Destin Harbor. All feature exquisite cuisine highlighting the local area.
Check Out the Gumbo Festival
Sandestin's 30th Annual Gumbo Festival is Friday February 15 - Sunday, February 17. Held within Baytowne Wharf along the New Orleans inspired streets, this festival features gumbo & pairings from local and regional restaurants, live music & even a few crafts for the kids. It's a great event to try new food, mingle with friends and enjoy the waterfront venue.
Tickets can be purchased here.
Spend the Day on the Water
Valentine's Day is the perfect day to spend along the Destin harbor. From Harborwalk Village you can shop, dine and catch the best view of the sunset in town. The Grande Vista Bar & Grille is hosting a 3-course Valentine's meal that's sure to please with lobster and a decadent dessert.
If you'd rather be ON the water, the Solaris is the ideal dinner cruise. They're offering 3 Valentine's cruises you can choose from this year, each with a chef prepared meal and dancing under the stars all on a 125 ft yacht. What could be better?
