Destin Harborwalk Village

Destin Boardwalk is a ‘must visit’

Harborwalk village (a.k.a Destin Boardwalk) is in the heart of Destin, with a lot of attractions, restaurants and shopping. It stretches over the shore with its boardwalk, so it is a good venue to walk around. It also hosts the marina to all fishing boats and fishing shows.

In 2008, Del Sol was the first retail space to open in Legendary Inc.’s $250 million mixed use project that already included the Emerald Grande. It was soon followed by Sawyer Art Gallery, Harry T’s, KittyHawk Kites, Commander’s Palace and other food and retail stores. HarborWalk Village actually began over 40 years ago in 1972.

With so many things to do in Destin; here you can find waterfront shopping, paddle board and kayak rentals, pontoon and jet ski rentals, parasailing, glass bottom boats, world class fishing, pirate ship excursions, dolphin cruises, concerts and live music, weekly fireworks, weekly Fat Tuesday parades, live entertainment, and an array of restaurants, including Jimmy Buffets Margaritaville and Harry Ts, to satisfy all tastes.

There are many activities for kids in peak season, including a long zip line, ice cream vendors, bouncing. Parking is also convenient, but $10. Years ago, the city of Destin began charging to park in city parking lots.  People then began parking at the Harborwalk to avoid the fee.  Store sales went down dramatically after this so they decided to implement a parking fee. Zerbe Street Parking Lot (corner of Zerbe and Silbert Avenue) is located across the street from Harborwalk Village, behind McGuire’s Irish Pub.  It is open weekdays and weekends and is free to park.

The Harborwalk Theater is a performing arts theater at the Harborwalk Village.  They host magic, comedy, and hypnosis shows.  It is owned and operated by Heather and Noah Wells, two award-winning illusionists.  They even have a magic school for children!

Located in Harborwalk Village, the zip line tower is around 500’ distance from the top to the end of the line and is held between two 80’+ 100′ foot steel towers.  It is fitted with LED lights to maximize your experience at night.  Because it has two towers, it is capable of allowing two people to ride, simultaneously.  This is great if you want to enjoy the experience with friends or family.

Fireworks are scheduled for every Thursday evening during the summer.  Also, many holidays and events will get a fireworks show. 

Fat Tuesdays are in summer. There are themed floats, beads, and anyone can get in on the action.  The festivities begin at 7 PM and the parade starts at 8:30 PM.  It’s a crazy experience so you better get there early!
