Destin ATTRACTIONS & Things to Do

To mix up your itinerary or pass a rainy day, venture off-property to explore the many things to do in Destin and the area surrounding Hilton Sandestin Beach. Stroll pristine beaches and eye for birds inside state parks and preserves; seek high-adrenaline thrills or a dolphin encounter at family-friendly attractions; relax with retail therapy and a movie or live music at one of our open-air villages. It’s your vacation – make it unforgettable!


  • Big Kahuna's Water Park There’s something for every age and adrenaline level at this water park, with designated “kiddie areas,” rivers, pools, speed slides – even an adventure park for dry pursuits.
  • Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park Watch marine animal exhibits and shows; then get hands-on by feeding penguins, training dolphins and snorkeling with stingrays (some age restrictions apply).
  • The Track Family Recreation Center Offers all manner of go-karts, miniature golf, bumper cars and boats, and a designated area for small children with rides just their size.
