Exploring Destin CommonsJune 7, 2021
Our friend, Cali, from To Do In Destin, recently stopped by Destin Commons to explore all the great things that guests can enjoy without actually shopping. Don’t get us wrong, the shopping is wonderful but come learn about all the other wonderful things to do at Destin Commons.
1. Another Broken Egg Cafe
The first thing you have to do at Destin Commons is fuel up. There is no better way to do this than an amazing brunch from Another Broken Egg Cafe. Start your culinary excursion with an ABE Famous Infused Mary. Follow that up with the Lobster & Brie Omelette, a cream cheese-filled omelette topped with Brie and champagne butter sauce sautéed lobster meat, tomatoes, and green onions. Hello, delicious brunch!
2. Gulf Coast Burger Co.
The next stop is Gulf Coast Burger Co. to treat you to a mouth-watering Cat 5 Milkshake. There are five flavors that are available year-round plus one bonus seasonal flavor. Our personal favorite is the Peanut Butter, a peanut butter shake topped with peanut butter morsels, Reese’s cups, Cracker Jacks, and whipped cream. WOW- just wow!
3. AMC Theatre
Are you looking for something to beat this heat? Well, step in AMC Theatre and take in a flick. You can even rent a private theatre just for your friends and family. We are so excited to finally be able to see some new releases on the big screen once again!
4. El Jalisco Mexican Grill
Do you know what the best time of the day is? Happy Hour at El Jalisco’s Mexican Grill. Enjoy 2 for 1 margaritas and domestic beers every day of the week. Maybe they should just call it Happy Week!
Bonus Stop- Murals
Destin Commons has 9 murals located throughout the Center from local and world-renowned artists that you have to check out. These make the perfect backdrop for Instagram. And don’t forget to visit the hanging shark at Bass Pro Shops. Be sure to tag us when you post and you might be chosen to be featured on @thedestincommons.
5. Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill
A great place to beat the heat is at Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill. This underwater themed bowling alley is guaranteed to bring the FUN. An added bonus is the arcade with games for everyone. Kids and adults alike love Uncle Buck’s and Skee-Ball!
6. World of Beer
Stop in for World of Beer for Happy Hour from 3:00-6:00 PM where you can kick back and enjoy $3-$4 draft beers, $5 craft cocktails, and $5 shareable foods. If you do not get started until later in the evening, no worries because World of Beer has Reverse Happy Hour from 10:00 PM until close. Cheers!
Finish up your day at Destin Commons with a sweet treat from Kilwins. You can never go wrong with ice cream but we also love a gooey caramel apple. Decisions, decisions. Which will you choose?
