What to do in Destin When it Rains?

“Rain, rain, go away! Come again another day….”

Wouldn’t it be nice if it was that easy? If we could simply tell the rain to come back another day? Unfortunately, down here in Destin, we can’t make unrealistic miracles happen. Mother nature will indeed do her job and occasionally bring us some rain! If you plan to visit us anytime between June or September, you might see more rain than the other months of the year. Don’t worry, we went ahead and put together a list of fun, family-friendly activities that will fill your beach void for the day. 

Wild Willy’s

If you’re looking for a place that will keep you and your kids busy all day, then visit Wild Willy’s. This place has the whole line-up, from arcade games to a 4D movie theatre. The fun doesn’t stop there, you can enjoy Salvati’s Pizza for a bite, and for dessert, try their Yogo Mogo Creamy Cool Creations. If the rain stops, head outside for some mini-golf, rope courses, or their bungee trampoline. The fun is endless at Wild Willy’s!

Escape Room - Escapology or Escape Zone 6

Do you enjoy thrillers or action movies? Now you can bring them to life in an escape room! For 60-minutes, you and your group will work together to solve puzzles, find clues, and crack codes to escape the room! Your group can choose from a variety of themes, such as crime scenes or even UFO rooms. Put yourself to the test and see if you can escape in less than 60-minutes. 

Painting with a Twist!

Become the artist you were always meant to be at Painting with a Twist! If you enjoy painting but don’t want to deal with the hassle of prep and clean up then this is the place for you! Did we mention they provide a master painter to help run the session and you can bring your own wine? No creative or artistic skill is needed, just enjoy connecting with friends over painting, food, and wine!

AMC Destin Commons Movie Theatre

When in doubt, go to the movie theatre! When it rains, the movie theatre is always a great option. If there’s a movie you and the family have been wanting to see, now is the time! The Destin Commons offers an amazing theatre in our area with 14 auditoriums! 

Hurricane Lanes

Let’s bowl! Visit Hurricane Lanes for your rainy day. Hurricane Lanes offers 26 bowling lanes, plenty of pool tables, an arcade, and Rupert’s Sports Bar! Get the family together for some friendly competition. The losing team has to buy ice cream! 

Destin is fun, rain or shine! As you can see, there are tons to do with the whole family. Don’t forget, there’s plenty of delicious local restaurants in the area too. Have yourself a day, no matter what the weather is like, we hope you make the most of your time with us!
