Need to get away? We have good news for you! Allegiant Air will resume its seasonal flights to Destin-Fort Walton Beach on March 4, 2021. Imagine lying on a white sandy beach, overlooking the emerald waters, and sipping your favorite cocktail. Or you could be fishing, swimming, snorkeling, and paddleboarding. Destin has plenty of things to do off the beach too – amusement parks, arcades for rides and games, museums, an alligator park and a very unique aquarium.
It’s a seafood lover’s paradise with Gulf-to-table seafood served at restaurants just steps away from the fishing boats that pulled them from water.
If you’re looking for less crowded, less touristy beaches, look no further than what the locals call 30A. The name comes from an actual road – South Walton County Road 30A. Along this 26-mile stretch of the Northwest Florida Coast, you will find 16 distinct beach neighborhoods, each with its own traditions, charm and visual style — including Sandestin, Seascape, Miramar Beach, Dune Allen, Gulf Place, Santa Rosa Beach, Blue Mountain, Grayton Beach, WaterColor, Seaside, Seagrove, WaterSound, Seacrest, Alys Beach, Rosemary Beach and Inlet Beach. South Walton is renowned for natural scenic beauty, turquoise waters and sugar-sand beaches. An upscale yet casual place to unwind, South Walton is the place to rejuvenate and build lasting memories.
You won’t find the big hotels or chains of any kind, but charming homes and cottages you can rent, some with pools. If you’re a foodie, you’ll be in Heaven. From classic southern fare to seafood dives, the restaurants scattered along 30A are authentic. You won’t find restaurant chains.
Rent a golf cart to get around, or bicycles for a ride along scenic bike paths. Or rent a kayak or paddleboard. For the more daring and adventurous, hit the waves; you can also rent surfboards.
The Allegiant nonstop flight leaves Wichita at 2:44 pm and arrives in Destin at 4:45 pm. On your return flight, you depart Destin at 11:03 am and arrive in Wichita at 1:19 pm. Book your vacation at allegiantair.com.
