  • Our Favorite Ways to Spend a Rainy Day on the Emerald Coast of Florida
    on April 21, 2021 at 12:00 am

    We are fortunate along the Emerald Coast of Florida to enjoy most of our days basking in the sun. However, when the forecast calls for rain, there are many ways to enjoy your favorite beach towns indoors. Here are a few of our favorites! Dave & Busters If visiting Panama City Beach and the weather is not cooperating, then it’s time to put your gaming skills to work. Dave & Busters is an indoor arcade and restaurant outlet boosting some of your old favorite games and new. You can spend the whole day enjoying good food and fun without having to get out in the rain. So, when you see a storm brewing over the Gulf from your Panama City Beach rental, grab your umbrella and head to Dave & Busters. Bud & Alley’s Bud & Alley’s is a restaurant located in Seaside steps away from your 30A vacation rental. Serving up a fresh take on the Southern coastal classics, you’ll enjoy true sea-to-table dining. What we especially love about Bud & Alley’s is their covered roof top bar! Most head up to the bar to enjoy perfect sunsets but on a rainy day there’s nothing like sipping on a cocktail watching the storm roll in over the Gulf of Mexico! Silver Sands Outlet Mall Miramar Beach sits between 30A and Destin. It’s also home to the very popular Silver Sands Outlet Mall. People come from all over to find incredible deals from their favorite stores. Designer shops such as Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue, Vera Bradley, and the list goes on. So, if the weather looks dreary outside your beachfront Miramar Beach vacation rental, make room in your suitcase and hit the outlets. Serenity by the Sea When the rain is pouring it’s time to get pampered at Serenity by the Sea Day Spa! Located in Miramar Beach, get ready to experience the ultimate in luxury. Unwind in the relaxation room where you can spend time in the sauna, steam room, or just relax with a glass of champagne as you await your service. They offer massage, body wraps, facials, manicures, pedicures, make-up, and hair. So, if you must stay indoors, indulge yourself with a visit to Serenity by the Sea. Destin Brewery Rainy days call for brewery fun! Destin Brewery is located across the street from the Harbor on Mountain Drive. You’ll love the atmosphere of this quaint taproom with brews boasting big flavors. Grab a flight and taste a little bit of everything. Enjoy your beer with a flatbread pizza or their famous Wagyu Beef hotdogs. Don’t forget to take home a six-pack or growler filled with your favorite brew to enjoy at your Destin vacation rental. Perdido Key Vacation Rental There’s no place better to take shelter from the storm than a cozy Perdido Key Condo. Enjoy the sounds of the rain as it falls on the water and powder white sand from your beachfront balcony. Sit back, sip a cup of hot tea, and watch the waves roughly roll in. There are so many ways to enjoy the storm along the Emerald Coast of Florida. Whichever beach town you find yourself visiting don’t worry about the weather! The sun will always come out tomorrow.
