“Fun place to walk around at night”

Village of Baytowne Wharf
Ranked #10 of 85 things to do in Destin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 June 2018 via mobile

This place is a resort with a large Florida-style manufactured "town square" that is pretty fun. The bars have drinks to go and there are tons of kids things like a carousel, bouncy castles, a zip line, etc. Some free some not. The night we went there they had a good fireworks show. There is a cool boardwalk out to an amazing boat dock, if I had a yacht I would think this is a great place to dock as it is picturesque and lots of restaurants to choose from although I wouldn't be surprised if they were all under the same ownership...I haven't eaten there so can't comment on food quality. Definitely a fun entertaining place to go for families.

This is centered in the middle of Baytowne Village where there are several residents living here along with vacation renters and resort style hotel guests. The Fireworks for Baytowne occur frequently at night and getting ride shares or using a golf cart are best to get around if you are staying inside the resort itself. There is a Sandestin shuttle that also runs from Baytowne back across to the Hilton and nearby resort areas. Food is good and priced about the same as any other restaurants outside of the resort area, but the truth is you are paying for the convenience of not having to go far for golfing, bike rides, food, and small shops. I would recommend Marlin Grill inside the village resort or taking a rideshare to nearby 30-A and its restaurants to top off the day.

Lots to see and do here. Plenty of restaurants and shopping. Beautiful buildings and nice water views. Parking is free. Definitely worth a stop.

It's ok. A few things to do like golf on the water, restaurants and gift shops. Small area of entertainment. Food was not great in my opinion.

I think this area is more for younger families based on the activities and games or couples for the nightlife. Parking was a pain. The guard station told us to park very far away and take a shuttle bc security close to the Wharf would not let us pass a certain point. Well we drove over to the wharf with no problem and parked in an overflow area. I felt bad for the tons of people that parked miles away and were told to take the shuttle. Restaurants got too crowded and were not worth the wait.
