No one wants to see summer come to an end, but that doesn’t mean it has to be a sad occasion. Celebrate the end of summer in style by heading down to Destin, Florida for one last summer vacation.

Plan your stay on the Emerald Coast with these fun activities to do on Labor Day weekend all around the city.
Okaloosa Island Boardwalk
While you’re spending the day on the beach, be sure to visit the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. There are plenty of restaurants that serve a variety of foods, including fried alligator and Cajun pasta.
You’ll also be near Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone, two interactive parks in walking distance from the boardwalk.
The Track is ideal for kid-friendly nightlife. After a relaxing day on the beach, you’ll enjoy getting your heart pumping as you race go-karts around a three story wooden track, compete in mini golf, and take a turn on a SkyFlyer, which mimics bungee jumping.
Kids Country is the perfect place for small children where they can ride around a train track, fly an airplane, and play in bumper boats.
Spend some time exploring the harbor or Crab Island with Sunshine Watersports. You can rent pontoon boats and spend a relaxing day on the water. Or choose a more exciting water sport by going parasailing high above the Gulf.
Explore the local wildlife with dolphin cruises in the Destin Harbor. Or go snorkling to get up close and personal with tropical fish.
Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park
Kids will love exploring the over forty water play areas at Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park. There is a wave pool, slides, rivers, and rides that you can play on for the day.
The main attraction is the Kowabunga Racer which has five stories of tubes that twist and turn on a thrilling water ride. You’ll end with a splash in the pool below.
How close would you get to an alligator? At Gator Beach, you can get up close and personal to feed an alligator. You’ll attach gator food to a pool and lower it into a pond to feed the gators below.
You can also get your picture taken with a live alligator, including babies that are only twelve inches long. Or visit Pearl, one of only 40 albino alligators in the United States.
