When you take a family vacation, does your family like to try something unique to the area? Our family certainly does! On our family vacation, we love to explore things to do that are unique or popular to that area, and we always seek out the favorite local restaurants to taste the local cuisines. Destin, Florida is one of the most family-friendly places to vacation because of the wide variety of things to do that are offered here. Some family vacation memories are worth repeating, and, I don’t know about you, but when we make those memorable moments, we love to recreate them year after year.
For us, family fishing is one of those memories. Obviously, we have an advantage. We are blessed to live in Destin, Florida, and make our living from the waters, fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. That being said, we don’t get out quite as often as you would imagine. Captain Cliff and Charter Boat Reel Grace stay pretty booked up during the Summertime, and because this is where we live and work, our weeks are full of much of the typical activities you might expect. We play chauffer to our 4 year old daughter who attends daycare, takes ballet, and plays soccer. Nicole works full time managing Destin’s most popular tour boats: Southern Star Dolphin Cruise and Buccaneer Pirate Cruise. (If you are looking for other family fun things to do in Destin, Florida, check these out: southernstardolphincruise.com, buccaneerpiratecruise.com) She also manages the bookkeeping, the social media, website, and bookings for Reel Grace Fishing Charters. Needless to say, we are rarely bored.
Since Destin’s peak season is during the Summer months, everyone asks when we get to take a break—We usually take our family vacation before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. During the Summer, when your family comes to visit the pristine beaches of the Emerald Coast on your family vacation to Destin, Miramar Beach, 30A, Fort Walton Beach, or Navarre, one of the top things to do should be fishing. You are probably wondering why. Destin is known as The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village. Family fishing creates memories that your family will cherish for years to come. Imagine helping your son or daughter reel in their first fish. Experiencing one of the best things to do in Destin, with your family is guaranteed to be family fun.
