Food Scene
Don't let the word Pub confuse you! Steak, seafood, and traditional Irish food is top notch! They also brew their own beer on site and have one of the largest restaurant wine cellars in the country. I first went to the Pensacola location while in Navy Officer Candidate School back in 1998. Don't forget to kiss the moose!

I classified the Donut Hole Cafe as a restaurant, but they have a great bakery, coffee, and breakfast. Personally, the Donut Hole and Another Broken Egg are tied for best local traditional breakfast, but the Donut Hole wins for their great bakery! Their Key Lime Pie rivals the best from the Florida Keys! This place is very popular for breakfast, so show up early on weekends or try their Santa Rosa Beach (on the way to 30A) location to avoid a wait. If you are looking for an evening dessert, the last time we went in the evening, the place was quiet, so it is a good time to stop in.

Excellent breakfast and brunch! It is right around the corner from Sandpiper Cove! This is a popular breakfast choice, so show up early on weekends or try their Sandestin location to avoid a wait.

This is a touristy spot. The food is good and priced about like the other restaurants on the Harbor Walk, but for the best view check out the third floor lookout. Yes there is a third floor! Facing the restaurant from the front middle floor, walk around the far right side of the building and take the exterior stairs to the third floor. I am not sure when they open the bar on the lookout floor, so take one with you for the best views of the inner harbor, pass, and gulf. Sunset is the perfect time!

Within walking distance, Capriccio Café is at the top of our list of recommended dining venues. Their staff is the friendliest that we have encountered in the local area and their space features comfortable couches to enjoy a cup of coffee, tables for dining, and art covered walls. They recently updated their menu with more organic ingredients and gluten free options. We recently went for breakfast and had their stuffed crepes. They were hands down excellent! They make their own bread and import all of their coffee, meat and cheese from Italy. Their menu is stacked with original gourmet & Italian coffee drinks, sandwiches, and salads. Too much to mention here. A must visit!

Almost within walking distance (or perhaps a long walk), a short drive will get you to our favorite pizza restaurant. They are a funky, art-filled pizzeria featuring craft beer, calzones and creative stone baked pizzas. They have a pizza type for everyone with a build your own pizza option and their own gourmet pizza recipes. They also have a wide variety of craft beer, salads, and hoagies. Just realizing they are a larger chain than originally thought, you may have encountered a Mellow Mushroom before. You can’t go wrong with their quality pizza and beer selection, plus, they are just down the street from our condo.

Parks & Nature
Bike here from Sandpiper Cover Resort. There is a bike rack to lock the bikes. Norriego Point is a narrow peninsula that is about .3 mi long that divides the Destin Inner Harbor and the Destin Pass. Walk along the inner harbor side or the destin pass shore for a look at beautiful white sand beaches, clear protected water to swim in and some good fishing spots. Check out the protected coves on the Destin Pass (west) side of the peninsula for a great place to swim and relax.

This is our favorite state park in the local area.  It is located on the western end of Hwy 30A in South Walton County.  If you only have time for one state park, this is it. Topsail has a significant trail network to include paved bike paths. Our favorite hike is the several mile loop trail that passes by coastal dune lakes, sand pine scrub, old-growth long leaf pine forest, wetlands, dunes, and ending with a 1 mile walk on undeveloped/protected beach. This park is extremely well kept, has nice facilities, and is significantly larger than all others in the local area to include 3 miles of protected beach.  Spend the morning hiking and the afternoon in the Seaside/Watercolor area.

Entertainment & Activities
Want to take a break from the beach and still stay cool? Big Kahuna's is a great place to go for water slides, a ride on the lazy river, playing in the wave pool, or just basking in the sun! They even have an entire area just for the kids!
