I know, I know – we are always talking about all things 30A. Where to go, where to eat, and where to relax. What can we say? We love the 30A community. However, we are fortunate to live in a place that is full of wonderful communities and Destin just wouldn’t be uniquely itself without the Destin Harbor. Sure, during peak seasons, the traffic can make it a chore to make the trip, but oh when you do – what a lovely trip it is. Here are some of our favorite spots along the Destin Harbor.  

Top 3 Harbor Hot Spots

theboathouseThe Boathouse – They call themselves “Destin’s Best Kept Secret,” but I’m afraid the secret may be out. This place is a locals’ favorite- serving up only the freshest local seafood and Apalachicola oysters, some of the best live music entertainment in the area, and a guaranteed good day had by all who enter. Customers often leave a little something behind when they visit The Boathouse – and that’s just something that you will have to see for yourself. Ride out a rainy day at The Boathouse and you’ll know what I mean when I say that this place is its own sunny day.



The outdoor deck at Harry T’s – If you love a good atmosphere as much as you love a good meal, then this is the place for you. This place rocks the docks all year round thanks to their superb menu selection and laid-back atmosphere. The entire restaurant is great but our favorite spot is the outdoor deck, and let me tell you – if you haven’t experienced a Destin sunset from the outdoor deck of Harry T’s, well, just trust us. It is a must see!



boshampsBoshamps – This place is one of the newer additions to the Destin Harbor, but it quickly became a locals’ favorite spot. Boshamps is like a one-stop shop for fun and good food in Destin – an entire Sunday Funday packed into one place. Seriously, you could spend your entire Sunday Funday at Boshamps and never get bored. There is great seating indoors and outdoors, there is a huge outdoor bar, and the fun doesn’t stop there. You can even get in on a competitive game of corn hole down by the docks, or just sit and enjoy a cocktail in one of the beach chairs. They know how to do it at Boshamps – they even set up a big screen during football season, making it the best place to be for the big game


These are just a few of the great places that you will find along the Destin Harbor, but you’ve got to start somewhere! One of the great things about being on the harbor is that there is always a great harbor docksspot within walking distance, and who doesn’t love a nice stroll along the harbor docks – speaking of Harbor Docks, that’s another one of our favorites! Ah, another day, another blog. Check out one of these great spots and chances are you’ll end up stumbling upon a favorite of your own nearby.
