What to Do in Destin when it rains.

Clouds building and rumbling thunder off in the distance that quickly turns into a stiff breeze and the inevitable Florida summer rainstorm. Sometimes they only last for 15 minutes, and provide everyone with a quick respite from the summer heat. Unfortunately, sometimes they last for three days right in the middle of your vacation and parents are left with the question, what do we do in Destin when it rains?

There is only so much time any parent will let their children play behind a screen, even on vacation, so we have some options to get everyone out and entertained on those less than perfect days.

The Rainforest Blacklight Mini Golf and Arcade is a unique way to mini golf, in the dark with black lights. Not only do they have the mini golf, but their arcade doesn’t just have screens where you sit and watch, but rather the games are interactive and encourage the players to move. So the players not only have more fun but they get some activity going as well. Also, the Rainforest has a special offer of $1 off each adult for Skis and Seas guests. The coupon can be found in the coupon section of our app. www.rainforestblacklightgolf.com/

Silver Sands Outlet Mall is a popular choice and many families try to save a trip to the outlet mall for a rainy day of their vacation. With almost 100 stores and great deals many families get a significant part of their back to school shopping done while they are on vacation. www.premiumoutlets.com/outlet/silver-sands

The Surge Trampoline Park located in Fort Walton Beach is a great way to burn off some extra energy, and what is better than having the kids be totally exhausted and going to bed early on that rainy day? After just a couple of hours of jumping big and little kids will all be tired out and we finid that some of our most peaceful nights are those after going to the trampoline park. www.surgefortwalton.com/
