Are you planning a weekend summer getaway during Memorial Day? Well, there is no better way to kick-off the unofficial start of summer than a holiday at the beach. As long as you’re planning a trip to the beach, you might as well make it to one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, Destin, Florida. Here’s what you can expect when vacationing in Destin during Memorial Day weekend.

Perfect Beach Days

Beach days in May are marvelous! The weather is warm but not too hot like it is mid-summer. The water is the perfect temperature for swimming, snorkeling, diving, boogie boarding, or just laying on a float letting the waves rock you to complete relaxation. Since May is the second driest month of the year for Destin, you are assured plenty of sunshine with blue skies making long days at the beach completely attainable.

Fun at Crab Island

It all started with a tiny island on the south side of Choctawhatchee Bay known as Crab Island. Now this island is “THE SPOT TO BE” in Destin, Florida. Hundreds of boats, kayaks, and wave runners anchor down and party hard at this most popular Destin hang out. Rent a pontoon, kayak, or wave runner to see for yourself why Crab Island is Destin’s summertime hot spot!

Memorial Day Weekend Celebrations

When a holiday weekend rolls around this town puts on a show! Join the Forrest Williams Band on Saturday, May 27th from 7:00-9:00pm at Baytowne Wharf. Dance the night away to southern rock, country, and blues. On Sunday, May 28th, same time same place, enjoy a family friendly evening full of face paintings, balloon animals, lawn games, and live music. Then at 9:15pm the sky will light up with a patriotic theme firework show!

Whether you want to hang out on the beach, catch the crowd at Crab Island, or tap your feet to some sweet outdoor tunes followed by an amazing firework show, Destin, Florida has got it all! Make reservations at a Crystal Beach vacation rental to stay in the middle of all the action and right on the beautiful white sand beaches of Destin. Happy Memorial Day from your favorite beach town!
