At the end of July my wife and I took a vacation to Destin Florida. It had been some time since we last visited what many people refer to as Paradise. From Cincinnati Ohio it is approximately a twelve hour drive. Why do we make the trip you may ask? When there are so many places that are closer. It’s the white beaches, the gulf breeze, the beautiful sun sets, and the list goes on and on. We have been making the trip to Destin for about fifteen years and even though our children have all grown up and moved away. We still return to Destin. There are many things to do in Destin. If you are into water sports, there are Jet skies, deep sea fishing, bottom fishing, para sailing, swimming, boogie boards, surf boarding, just to name a few. If your interested in making the trip but don’t know where to stay, just google Destin Florida. There is even a website for people who want to rent a condo any where you can imagine….. www.vrbo.com. The vrbo stands for Vacation Rentals By Owner and is a great place to start looking for a place to stay.
