Getting to Destin
Driving to Destin
Destin is just south of Florida Interstate 10. There several ways to reach Destin once you exit I-10. However these are the best routes.
To reach East Destin, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, and South Walton the quickest way in is to take Exit 85, which is the Defuniak Spring/Freeport exit. Next you will head south on Highway 331, cross the bay, and continue to Highway 98. If you turn right and head west you will pass the entrance to South Walton’s 30A and reach Miramar Beach & Sandestin, and ultimately arriving in Destin.
If you are heading to Destin proper or the Holiday Isle area you will want to choose Exit 70, which is the Niceville/Eglin/Hurlburt exit or opt for Exit 56, which is the exit for Crestview/Niceville. From both exist you will follow the signs to Niceville and cross the Mid-Bay Bridge toll road. Once you reach Emerald Coast Parkway you can head west to reach Downtown Destin or turn left and head east for Miramar Beach.
