Seaside, Florida
Seaside is best known as the backdrop for the movie, The Truman Show starring Jim Carey.
Nestled down the iconic highway 30A, it’s a beachside town with white picket fences, perfectly portioned neighborhoods, and beautiful beachfront homes. Many families rent bikes to explore the town, stopping to eat at Airstream Row – our collection of Food Trucks including Meltdown on 30ABarefoot BBQRaw and JuicyFrost Bites and more. With plenty of shopping, outdoor hangout spots and a beach access point, it’s easy to see why it’s a hot spot for teens and families on spring and summer break.

Fishing/Dolphin Tours
If you’re looking for a break from the beach, a fishing excursion could be just the thing! Known as the World’s Luckiest Little Fishing Village, Destin has all kinds of fishing charters available and many really enjoy taking kids and families out on the water. Our two preferred partners, Lions Tale Adventures and Destin Inshore Guides, both do inshore trips in our Choctawhatchee Bay. Catch everything from redfish to trout, or be a little more adventures and go offshore into the Gulf of Mexico to catch Triggerfish, Sheepshead, Redfish, Sharks, Grouper and more. If fishing isn’t your thing, Lions Tale Adventures offers a 2 hour Private Dolphin Tour. Cruise the beach and get up close and personal with dolphins as they swim and play around the boat – some even getting close enough to touch. It is truly a memorable experience for all.

Harborwalk Village
A zipline, rock climbing wall, and fancy fruit drinks – Harborwalk Village has a multitude of things to occupy an afternoon (and their Instagram feed) with fun for all ages. Stop by and try to conquer the rock climbing wall, wait and watch the fishing boat captains come in and clean their fish on the docks, or zipline through across the Harbor to see it all. Grab a non alcoholic watermelon daiquiri inside a hollowed out watermelon or pina colado in a pineapple, watch the sunset and listen to live music outside of AJs Destin. You can easy spend an entire day at Harborwalk Village and find plenty of things to do with teenagers in Destin, Florida.

Jet Ski Rentals
We all know there is nothing better to keep a teen occupied, than a fast moving vehicle through water – and while we wouldn’t trust most of them to drive a boat, a jet-ski can offer an afternoon of fun for a fraction of the cost (and worry!). Destin Vacation Boat Rentals has access to a variety of boat and jet ski rentals and can help secure exactly what you need. Most of them are two passengers, so rent a pair and take the whole family out!
