Winter time in Destin, FL
– What you’ll see, and what you won’t –
The Holidays have begun, Thanksgiving has passed and everyone is beginning to pack on that extra layer for the wintertime. In Destin, when the summer comes to a close, the mainstream fishing season ends, and the summer sun just doesn’t get as hot… a different Destin emerges. Many associate Destin, FL with warm summer beaches, mild waves, sunshine, sunburns, packed beaches, and packed mid-day traffic. As October has ended and November is coming to a close, Destin could easily be described as a ghost town when compared to June-July standards. In November, the temperatures often dip into the 40’s and 50’s by night time, the water has become wet-suit ready, and Destin’s 4.5 Million tourists have headed home. In Destin, the seasonal workers have captured their loot and the construction/repair season has begun for the city of Destin. At the time of this writing, the Destin Commons are expanding to accommodate more stores, and Grand Boulevard is welcoming a new IMAX theatre, just east of the Destin City limits.
Here in Destin, even though our busy season has ended our 12,000 residents show their Holiday spirit by putting up the Christmas lights, nativity scenes, holding charity auctions, hosting red wine and networking events, and most importantly, by giving back to the community through Christmas giving and sharing through local church and charity programs.
