Father’s Day is right around the corner and Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Florida, is ready to help you spoil and celebrate the great men in your life. Destin-Fort Walton Beach is home to 24 miles of sugar-white-sand beaches and emerald waters with plenty of dad-favorite experiences and activities for the perfect Father’s Day celebration. With nearshore and offshore fishing to unique water adventures and delicious dining options, there are endless ways to celebrate dad.


Destin-Fort Walton Beach offers families plenty of options to have a fishing adventure. Although there is fishing year-round, Father’s Day falls right in the middle of snapper season. To help give families the best experience possible, Adventure Packs pairs unique water adventures with delicious local food and offers a personalized family experience. You can chat with a local expert at www.destinfwb.com for more information and to help select an adventure right for you. Experience Caption Lionel’s Nearshore Fishing where you can cast a line and reel in an adventure during a four-hour fishing trip aboard Lion’s Tale Adventure or visit Tackle and Tacos to cast a line from Island Pier and enjoy a day of fishing. Grab lunch at Rockin Tacos.


If fishing isn’t your dad’s thing, spend the dayon the water kayaking and paddle boarding. This is great for all types of families to enjoy with a chance of spotting some wildlife while on the water. Keep an eye out for osprey, bald eagles, sting rays and even dolphins.


Other great water activities to take advantage of are snorkeling and scuba diving. Continue the family fun underwater, whether you are snorkeling just offshore along the reefs or heading out with a guided group on a snorkeling or scuba trip. Get ready for an adventure in crystal-clear water with possible sightings of dolphins, redfish, crabs, seahorses and, if you’re lucky, a sea turtle.

Disneyland in a Post-Vaccinated World

I took my first cross-country trip since the pandemic to California to go to Disneyland and California Adventure to visit a friend and celebrate another friend's birthday. Although I have never been to Disneyland, I have been to Walt Disney World countless times, so I was interested to see how all the new rules and regulations work. After experiencing it firsthand, I wanted to share my experience with readers interested in visiting the park.
