As soon as school let out for the summer we hit the road. This was my first time leaving Denver since we moved here last summer. We flew to NOLA on a Friday night and Saturday morning my family of 4, my parents and my brother made the 4 hour drive to Destin, Florida.
We rented a beautiful house in Miriamar Beach, right off of Scenic Highway 98. The house was in a great location. We were in walking distance to the beach, a short drive to restaurants and close lots of activities and shopping.
In addition to enjoying lots of rest and relaxation, we ate A LOT!! Living land locked in Colorado all I wanted was seafood so I definitely wanted to steam crabs. They were delicious. I also ate seafood at every restaurant we went to.
One of the best restaurants we ate at was called the Surf Hut. Not only was the food delicious, the service was awesome and the drinks were amazing. The restaurant was right on the beach so while you wait for a table you can spend time in the back playing corn hole, enjoying the view or having a drink.

This was the first time the 7 of us took a vacation together and we had WONDERFUL time. Everyone hated to see our week to come to an end.
You can see from these pictures why Destin is part of the Emerald Coast. The water is so clear and the beaches are sandy white.
I've already started looking at the calendar to schedule our return visit next year :-).
