Date Night Ideas in Destin
While bringing the kids on vacation is a great way to create life long memories, a little escape at the end of the day for your own date night can be much needed. Destin has a variety of things to do to share some quality time with your spouse while you leave the kids with a sitter. We’ve partnered with Angelfish Babysitting to get your first hour FREE! Now that the kids are taken care of, here are 7 date night ideas in Destin.
Grab your honey and take a sunset dinner cruise aboard the Sunquest Cruises Solaris Yacht. Stroll through Baytowne Marina to find the boat dock, and start by grabbing a drink at the full bar before exploring all three levels. As the yacht sails out into the Bay, enjoy a three course meal featuring fresh Gulf seafood, prime rib, and much more. End the night by dancing under the stars or on the main level dance floor where live music will be playing everything from MoTown to classic rock to top hits.
Royal Palme Grille
If you’re looking to stay on dry land for the evening, head over to Royal Palm Grille to start the evening with drinks at their famous Beach Bar, nestled right on the sand overlooking the water. Voted Best Happy Hour in Destin, it’s also one of the best locations to watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. Next, head inside the restaurant for dinner, choosing from a variety of items such as steak, burgers, and sushi. After dinner, head back out to the Beach Bar to curl up under the stars and enjoy their FREE beach bonfire every Friday night, all year long.
Take the opportunity to relax without your kiddos by visiting Surfside Spa. Awarded the Top Rated Spa in Destin by TripAdvisor, you can book a couples massage or facials in the same room to be side by side with your love. Choose from a variety of packages that best fit your needs, including deep tissue, Swedish, and hot stone massages, or revitalizing and luxury facials. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
Ocean Club Restaurant
Another fun dinner idea is to check out the Ocean Club Restaurant, located at Tops’l Beach and Racquet Resort. Enjoy a variety of seafood, steaks, and salads while you dine privately in one of their many rooms. Following dinner, enjoy live music every Friday and Saturday playing a variety of tunes. Kick back, relax, and enjoy your favorite bottle of wine.
We’ve got something a little more upbeat for those couples who want to let loose and have some fun. Rum Rummers in Baytowne offers dueling pianos almost every night of the week. Tip the piano players to play your favorite song and sing along while you hit the dance floor to show off your moves. The audience participation makes it so much fun, and also makes it different every single night.
Chan’s Wine World
If you are looking for a nice place to relax and drink some great wine in Destin, The Wine Bar @ Chan’s Wine World is the place to be for date night. The servers here are cheese and wine connoisseurs, and won’t leave you hanging when it comes to some solid drink/appetizer choices. If you are looking for a dinner you can also get a nice steak or fresh seafood dinner! Happy hour is from 11 am to 6 pm where you can get a carafe for the price of a large glass.
Lastly, on date night if you are looking for fine dining in a coastal casual atmosphere then Emeril’s Coastal is where you want to be. Their fresh Emerald Coast seafood meets the New Orleans style cooking and seasoning which leads to a great dining experience in Grande Boulevard.
No matter which you choose, end your evening with a late night stroll along the beach, listening to the waves hit the sand while walking under the moon.
