Royal Palm Grille hosts a FREE Beach Bonfire every Friday night on the sand outside their Beach Bar. All ages (and friendly pets) are welcome! The fire begins at sunset; chairs are provided and they have an full kitchen and bar, so no outside food or drink is permitted. We love this video by Silver Shade Studios showing the fun:
Village of Baytowne Wharf
A headquarters for kid friendly activities, the Village of Baytowne Wharf has a different activity planned for most every night of the week. Kick off the week with Sunday Cinema night, with a free movie showing on the lawn. Come back for Hydroflight Mondays and watch Fly Guy Ben Merrell defy gravity and shoot through the air on a water powered board, doing tricks and performing for two shows, at 6:30pm and 8pm. Boomin’ Tuesdays begin at 6:30pm where your kids can enjoy lawn games, inflatables, and end the evening with fireworks. Wednesday nights become music city, where a free concert on the lawn takes over Baytowne with a different band every night, and see two amazing magic shows with Captain Davy on Magical Thursdays.
More than just fishing, spend the day on a boat touring our gorgeous coastline, watching dolphins swim and play, and of course, catching a few fish. We have two preferred partners available to take you and your family out on an amazing adventure: check out Lion’s Tale Adventures and Destin Inshore Guides. Both are amazing at what they do and will give your family a day to remember!
