Destin Florida Attractions for Families Keep Everyone Happy

Destin is home to some of the best family-friendly attractions you can find. Snorkel with the stingrays, play in a tree top ropes course, or go on a water-soaked thrill ride. Some of Destin’s most iconic attractions appeal to the younger ones, but don’t worry, they are fun enough for adults too.

Big Kahuna’s Water Park features a lazy river, water slides, a wave pool, and more. Offering more than 40 water play areas, Big Kahuna’s is a great adventure for the entire family. The Track is another popular family attraction in Destin, featuring go-kart racing, a putt-putt golf course, bungee jumping, bumper boats, and more.

Rather spend your family time out on the water? Pirate cruises and dolphin tours are a great excuse for everyone to experience nature, have fun, and even learn a bit. If your little ones are especially excited about marine life, the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park is the place to go.

Or perhaps staying on land is more enticing. Bring the kids to Beach Sand Sculptures where they can get a lesson on how to create the most epic sandcastle.

Here’s a list of our favorite family-friendly attractions in and around Destin.
