"Go to one of the seafood markets and buy ruby Red shrimp when in season. They taste like a combination of lobster and shrimp. Extremely yummy! Also, a trip to Molly McGuire's provides consistently good steaks and ribs. On the harbor, ask for the catch of the day for the freshest fish just off the boats!"
"The Harbor Walk area and the marina is where you can meet some of the local charter boat captains and see what they brought in that day. The Crystal Beach area is the perfect spot for a family vacation with lots of colorful houses to rent that sleep from 8 to 22 guests. The Destin Commons Mall is the place to spend the whole day shopping, eating and drinking. You can also go to the theatre there, the Bass Pro Shop or the Hard Rock Café."
