HarborWalk Village is Destin’s most exciting entertainment destination. No ordinary outdoor shopping center, HarborWalk Village is perched on the edge of the Destin Harbor with views of the boats and Gulf. Rich fishing history intertwines with dining, shopping, nightlife and adventure sports to create an experience for everyone. Where else can you charter a deep sea fishing excursion, ride a jet ski, watch artists create at True Colors Studio, feast on funnel cakes and end the day singing along at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville?
As you walk through HarborWalk Village, you’ll hear music spilling out of Harry T’s Lighthouse and Coyote Ugly Saloon while high above come voices of delight from thrill seekers on the Harborwalk Adventures zipline and rope course. Glowing necklaces and swords tempt the kids at Bright Ideas, while the swirling colors from Kitty Hawk Kites and the instant satisfaction of a temporary tattoo from People Painters make for an exciting, carnival atmosphere.
Stock up on handmade soaps at Naples Soaps and unique finds at Legacy Airbrush & Gifts. Truly one-of-a-kind souvenirs can be had at Cartoon’s by Deano and Dave Magee Glass Blowing. Create custom monogrammed jewelry from U-Name-It that you’ll treasure and stock up on T-shirts that change color in the sun from Del Sol. Sunset Lifestyles, Aloha Surf Company and Bleu Tropics specialize in the laid-back breezy style of Florida’s Emerald Coast.
Don’t forget the swimsuits!
Emerald Shuttle Beach Service offers a shuttle across the harbor to pristine white sand shores. Relax or try jet surfing from Jet Surf Destin or go SNUBA-ing (a combo of snorkeling and scuba) with Destin Snorkel.
Dolphin watching here is a must-do. Pick up glasses with glare protection from Sunglass World and then book a time with Southern Star Dolphin Cruises, The Sea Blaster, or an outing on the Buccaneer Pirate Ship (complete with cannon fire and buried treasure) for an unforgettable way to comfortably spot bottlenose dolphins. For a touch more adventure, why not try parasailing with Boogies Watersports or get a seagull’s eye view with a Timberview Helicopter ride?
After a day spent soaking up the sun, a sugary treat from Kona Ice, Spun Fun Cotton Candy or The Fudgery will have you ready to face the ultimate challenge ― finding a way out of the Gulf Coast Escape Room. Figure out the clues and escape within 60 minutes or lose.
If you’d rather sit back and be entertained, try the 7D Interactive Movie Ride. These short, virtual reality movies put you in the action from the comfort of a movie seat.
HarborWalk Village offers seasonal firework shows, parades and special events so no matter when you visit, the action is always changing.
