This past weekend I had the pleasure of getting to stay in absolute paradise at the Best Family Vacation DESTINation on the Gulf Coast – The Emerald Grande Resort at Harborwalk Village on the Destin Harbor. Now, being a “local” I know how amazing Destin is – I practically grew up there as my Uncle has a condo and grandparents both loved it out there – but this weekend I got to see a new side of Destin and one that I will not soon forget.
The Emerald Grande is located just east of the Destin Bridge and has access to literally everything. This was the first Brandcation that required ZERO driving. Once we parked (for free I might add) we did not get in the car again until it was time to leave. Everything we needed – from activities to shopping to dining – was all located in Harborwalk Village with easy access from the resort.
We had 24 Bloggers in our group and got to see both the 2 and 3 bedroom condos – all of which are just breathtakingly beautiful. The two towers overlook the pool, the Destin Harbor, and/or the pass to the Gulf of Mexico from Choctawhatchee Bay. Translation: There
Over the three days we stayed there we had the chance to sample up the activities and dining, as well as have some down time to just lay by the pool. It was easily my favorite Brandcation so far.
I will be posting more details about all of the events of the weekend, but just had to give a huge shout out to the Emerald Grande at Harborwalk Village for showing us the absolute best that Destin has to offer. I have no doubt that we will be back to enjoy a family vacation very, very soon.
