    A friend and I decided last minute to drive to Destin for spring break.
    We have 5 teenage boys aged 15-17. We are staying in a 4 bedroom condo on the ocean.
    That will likely be entertainment enough but we still would appreciate suggestions on good places to see, eat, snack, etc.
    Maybe paddleboard or kayak or is that not safe or an option?
    I plan to get up in the morning for a sunrise walk and maybe to shell. Is there a good place within an hour or so to do that?

    Some of my own research has found shelling is not in the Destin area. Shells are the size of pencil erasers at best. That sounds like AMAZING sand.
    There are current RIP tide alerts so I am assuming paddle boarding is out too LOL.

    The people I know who love Destin go there to sit on the beach and shop the outlet stores.

    There may be paddleboarding on the bay side of Okaloosa Island. I did a lot of floating on rafts when I stayed in Okaloosa.

    It's definitely not a good place for shelling. Siesta Key and Sanibel are much better for that.

    Floating of rafts? Did you bring your own? rent? In the ocean or pool? This sounds very me so please tell me more.

    I took my own raft. I floated in both the ocean and the bay. I don’t use rafts in public pools because they take up so much room. I don’t want to be a pool hog.
