Have you heard the weather forecast prediction for this upcoming winter? The Farmer’s Almanac is predicting a bitterly coldone that can rival with the dreariness of last year’s winter season. But don’t let that be your excuse for hibernating all winter long. Escape to a warm destination instead with cheap flights for military family members.
Keep the Family Warm in Destin, Florida
Fishing around for a warm place that the whole family would be able to enjoy? Then head on down to Destin, Florida and literally fish! The Destin Harbor is a quaint fishing village that is swimming with things for the whole family to do. Besides fishing, you and your family can walk on the boardwalk, rent a boat, drive or ride on a WaveRunner, shop, and eat seafood.
If you wanted to, you could easily spend your whole winter vacation at the Destin Harbor. However, doing so would cause you and the rest of the gang to miss out on the fun to be had at Gator Beach. Which would be a shame for the kids, since they are especially likely to enjoy Gator Beach for the opportunity to feed and hold an alligator. As for the parents, they’ll love taking pictures of the kiddos with the gators.
Speaking of pictures, how about visiting Buster’s Old Time Photos in Destin? Wear costumes from the Victorian era. Then have fun posing for pictures. You’ll enjoy looking at the unique family photos for years! Recommended airport: Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport – Panama City, FL (ECP)
