We all know that more people come to Destin for beaches, shopping, and fishing during the day. But don’t you think that this place can also give you a great experience even after the sun sets? Yes, Destin has a lot of fun and interesting to do even at night. Sure that a whole day spent at the beach can be so tiring already but saving a little energy for the night will be so much worth it.
Here are some of the Top Things to Do in Destin at night.
Every year there are weekly series being held in some areas of Destin, Okaloosa Island, and Fort Walton Beach. Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation held live concerts in the village with some of the great bands and artists that will suit your every genre of music like country, rock, reggae, R&B, pop, jazz, and more. If you’re here in Destin by September-October, you’re sure to catch them performing every Thursday night. There are Saturday night concerts too at Harborwalk Village and Rock the Docks all summer long.
Who would not fall in love with all the beautiful lights and colors illuminating the night sky? If you’re such a great fan of fireworks, Destin has fireworks at different nights that it’s impossible not to find anything that fits your schedule. Every Tuesday, find your way to The Village of Baytowne Wharf and be thrilled with the spectacular fireworks display of Boomin’ Tuesdays! If Tuesday doesn’t work for you, head on to Harborwalk Village every Thursday to witness their picturesque fireworks show with Firespinning to follow on the main stage.
Bonfires on the Beach
Setting up a bonfire at the beach while cooking hotdogs and roasting s’mores is something you would be excited to do with family and loved ones. Just note that permits may be required, however, there are bonfire services around who arrange bonfire activities and packages like Bonfire Guy, Beach Bonfires 30A and The Rental Shop 30 A. They will certainly help you avoid all the hustles of processing permits and what to drink or eat and rather spend a night of great talks and laughs.

Nothing beats ending a long tiring day at the beach with a bottle of beer at the local bar. Whether you want to just chill and listen to live music or maybe dance like there’s no tomorrow, there are so many local bars and dance clubs in Destin you can get to enjoy. The night is always young for the local and tourists going here.
