Located along Florida's Emerald Coast, Destin has some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village” is located on a peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Choctawhatchee Bay, providing access to both the Bay and the Atlantic. Across Choctawhatchee Bay is Eglin Air Force Base, home of the Air Armament Center. Recreation in Destin is all about sun and surf, so be sure to bring your swimwear. Whether you like the excitement of parasailing, the challenge of fishing, or the relaxation of a glass-bottom boat ride, Destin has you covered. For those less devoted to sand and surf, Destin offers year-round golf, and less than a mile from the Extended Stay America. Relax and take a load off at our beautiful locations.
