Of all the famous holiday hotspots in Florida, Destin is probably not one of the towns that is a household name for most people. But this resort town on the Panhandle is extremely popular, and has been for many years. It is not generally known as a budget travel destination, but that does not mean its beautiful beaches and waters are restricted just to high-end travelers – even in this area there are still cheap hotels in Destin which will give you access to the same attractions as everyone else.

Yes, even a so-called resort town that has more golf courses in the area than you can shake a stick at has budget accommodation options. Of course, there are fewere cheap hotels in Destin than there may be in other Florida towns, and you will probably have to settle for a spot that is further from the beach as opposed to a room overlooking the water, but that may be a small price to pay to enjoy the many perks of a vacation in Destin.

For one thing, the beaches in Destin have what many consider the whitest and finest sand of any beach on the planet. Couple that with the famous emerald green waters and you have a spectacularly picturesque place to spend a holiday. The water presents a great opportunity to enjoy water sports like parasailing, yachting, deep sea fishing, and dolphin watching. Golf enthusiasts will be in seventh heaven, as there are plenty of great courses in and around Destin. It is an ideal family vacation destination with something for everyone.
