Destin Ranked #1 for a Labor Day Getaway by TripAdvisor Reviewers

Aug 24

While we know Destin is the best spot for a Labor Day getaway, it was wonderful read that the reviewers on TripAdvisor think so too! A recent article on Travel & Leisure shared the news, featuring Destin as #1 and listed 14 other popular Labor Day Weekend destinations.

According to a TripAdvisor survey, 59 percent of U.S. travelers are planning on spending their long weekend in a vacation rental (up from 52 percent in 2014). The rationale included: extra living space, low rates, and improved amenities.

We tend to think that Destin is a top choice for a Labor Day vacation because:
-The beaches are gorgeous. Who doesn’t want to spend Labor Day at the beach? As summer comes to an end, Destin’s beaches become less crowded, the sunsets become more vibrant and the pace slows along the Emerald Coast.

-There is live music and concerts. From live music at Destin Harbor to the Heather Hayes Concert at the Cultural Arts Village to the Pepsi Gulf Coast Jam featuring Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert & Keith Urban, there is no shortage of talented musicians and artists celebrating their craft with music loving audiences all along the Emerald Coast.  

-Fresh Gulf seafood is abundant. With a wide range of popular Destin seafood restaurants, the options for a delicious meal are limitless. From casual beachside eateries to fine dining, Destin restaurants and chefs celebrate their location within the World's Luckiest Fishing Village.The best part is that the wait to get into your favorite restaurant is much shorter than summer or none at all.  

-Vacation rentals are the norm. As the TripAdvisor survey pointed out, more and more families are seeking vacation rentals when they travel. Fortunately, the majority of accommodations in Destin are vacation rentals, providing many options for the perfect home away from home at the beach.

-The beach is the best place to relax! Since Labor Day is about relaxing and rewarding yourself for a year of hard work, the beach provides the ultimate relaxation vacation.
