Village of Baytowne Wharf

Reviewed By carterbrooke - Fort Worth, United States

Turned our kids loose and felt safe letting them roam at night. Lots of shops and even an arcade and a famous wooden play park. Adventure rides like zip line and euro bingo jump tastefully added into existing fisher style village A lagoon meanders thru the village. Adults can frequent restaurants that turn “only over 21” at 10 pm

Our family visited Destin, Florida in December for Christmas and heard some good things about the Destin Commons so we checked it out. We spent a lot of our time there I want to say almost every day, we shopped for Christmas gifts had lunch and went to the movies. I highly recommend this shopping center they have a lot of very good stores Books a million, bass pro shop. They have a store there that is like build a bear but you build your own remote control car, I bought one for my grandson my sister bought one for her son. The next day her husband went back and bought 2 more car’s, there is something for everyone.

A spirited and vibrant venue on Destin Harbor, restaurants, shopping, festivals, zip lines, magic shows, live music- all overlooking incredible views!

Reviewed By hobogypsy

My family spent the afternoon strolling around Harbor Walk Village! Plenty to do for the whole family! Nobody enforcing mask mandates so we could actually walk around and breath in fresh oxygen and smell the salty beach air! As a matter of fact ,we didn't wear a mask the entire time we were in Florida!
