Things To Do At Night in Destin Florida
We know you came to Destin to relax and sit on the beach, but once the sun sets, there’s still time for fun! With a variety of nightlife activities for both kids and adults, you’re sure to find something here that’s fun for the whole family. Check out our list of things to do at night in Destin Florida to start planning your trip today.
Fudpuckers Teen Night: Having teenagers can be struggle, when they’re too young for a lot of activities but too old for others. Fudpuckers solved this by offering a fun, safe, alcohol free and smoke free spot for teenagers aged 14-17 to come dance, hang out, and win prizes all summer long. Cost is $15 at the door, or upgrade to their VIP Package for an extra $15, that includes a variety of extra goodies. Monster energy drinks and soda will be served, with prizes being given away all night long. This event happens at Fudpuckers in Destin every Thursday night from 10pm-1am, and in Fort Walton Beach every Tuesday from 9pm-12am.
Fireworks: These are fun for the whole family! Many locations in Destin offer fireworks on different nights, so you can find the one that best fits your schedule. In Baytowne, fireworks will go off every Boomin’ Tuesday after the lawn games and inflatables end around 9:15pm. Or find them on the Harbor every Thursday at 9pm, followed by a Fire Dancing show. Or, if you’re out towards Okaloosa Island, you can find them every Wednesday and Sunday beginning at 9pm, overlooking the pier at the Boardwalk. Cost is free to see these, and we encourage you to bring the whole family!
Free Beach Bonfire: A fun way to experience something new on vacation that you can’t always do at home, is to come by Royal Palm Grille every Friday and Monday for their FREE Beach Bonfires! Fire starts at sunset, with chairs available on a first come, first serve basis. There is a Beach Bar on the water where you can order food, drinks, or smore’s for the bonfire. All ages are welcome, no RSVP required!
Concert Series: There is no shortage of live music down on the coast during the summer! Many of our small communities offer their own free live concert series, starting with Baytowne every Wednesday night at 7pm on the main stage. If you miss that, you can hit the Pop n Shop Concert Series at the Market Shops every Monday from 5pm-8pm, with live music in the gazebo along with shopping specials at the local merchants. You can also hit every Saturday on the Harbor from 7pm-9pm with the Rock the Docks concert series, or hit up Gulf Place Amphitheater out on 30A every Sunday from 5pm-8pm for more live music.
