Destin traces it's immediate history to a fisherman, Leonard Destin, who moved from Connecticut, and settled in Northwest Florida around 1845. For decades, he and his descendants fished and navigated the only channel passage to the Gulf of Mexico between Panama City and Pensacola, known as Destin's East Pass.
In Destin it's all about water. And why not? With sugar white sand beaches and emerald green Gulf waters, Destin is the perfect base from which to sail, wind surf, scuba dive or snorkel. Known as "the World's Luckiest Fishing Village", Destin also offers fine dining, year round golf, shopping, and a wide variety of entertainment for kids of all ages.
Ownership opportunities range from quaint getaways to extraordinary Gulf Front Penthouses. Whether your share of "paradise" is an income producing investment property or a luxury full-time residence, you are certain to find it in beautiful Destin.
