It's no secret – Florida is a world-leading travel destination. It was estimated that a record 116.5 million visitors traveled to Florida in 2017, an increase of 3.6 percent over the previous year. With its famed theme parks, expansive resort hotels, and a coast lined with blissful beaches, Florida is especially popular during Spring Break.
According to the world's largest vacation rental search engine – HomeToGo.com – data showed that Panama City Beach and Destin were ranked as the top two most popular Florida destinations for Spring Break. Panama City Beach saw over $27 million spent weekly on vacation rentals during spring break, while Destin saw over $17 million.
So besides the gorgeous beaches, what makes Destin and the surrounding areas so popular? While spring break brings the few weeks we get the influx of exuberant college students, the year-round draw extends far beyond that. It's the families also looking to make the most of school vacations, empty-nesters looking to reclaim their time and reconnect, others simply searching for some much-needed warmth after the chilly winter period, and even locals opting to "stay-cation" instead of travel abroad. No matter who you are, you can't help but become smitten with Destin’s charms. It's impossible to resist the friendly small-town vibe and world-class outdoor activities such as swimming, golfing, and fishing. Whether you book a dolphin cruise, dig into fresh seafood dinners or sample the vibrant nightlife, Destin is sure to dazzle.
