Family Day Out at the Commons

Now that the weather has cooled off a bit, it is time to gather the family and head over to Destin Commons for a family day out at the Commons! There is something for everyone to enjoy while here. Just follow our guide and discover some time new favorites for dining and shopping and rediscover all the things you have always enjoyed at Destin Commons.

What’s For Breakfast?

Start the day off right with a hearty breakfast at Another Broken Egg Cafe. Enjoy a hot cup of fresh coffee and a breakfast fit for champions. The kiddos will love a hot chocolate topped with whipped cream. Now that your tummy is full and you have had your caffeine fix, it is time to get started on shopping and creating a day of fun and memories.

Photo Op

Did you know that one of our most popular, Instagram worthy, photo ops is back? Yes, we are talking about our spectacular fall display at Center Plaza. Came out and have a family photo taken. It is perfect for your annual Christmas card or just to post on social media. Don’t forget to tag @thedestincommons. Who knows, we just might feature you on our social media platforms.

Splash Around

We are fortunate enough to live in Florida where our fall weather is still warm enough to for the kids to enjoy the splash pad. After that family photo at the fall display, it is time for the kiddos to exert some energy and cool off a bit. We love hearing the shrieks of laughter that comes from the splash pad. Just remember to bring a dry set of clothing to change into so you can continue with your family day out at the Commons.

Lunch Time

What is better for lunch than a mouth-watering burger? Absolutely nothing! Stop by Gulf Coast Burger Co. for lunch that the entire family will cheer for. We recommend starting with the Loaded Tater Tots or Fried Pickles- a table pleaser. All the burgers are delicious but we love building our own based on what we are craving which is something that changes daily. Enjoy your meal on their patio with the salty Florida breezes!

Friendly Competition

Now it is time to put on your bowling shoes and show the family who is the boss. The boss of the pins! Head over to Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill where the family can bowl in an underwater-themed bowling alley. It is by far the most fun you will ever have bowling. Plus, Uncle Buck’s has an arcade that is made of dreams. A section of the arcade is dedicated to the nostalgic 80’s games that we all love to play!

Beary Fun

Everyone deserves a special treat sometimes and Build-A-Bear is just the ticket. Kids (and adults alike) love building a cuddly creature of their choice. And the choices are endless. Happy bear building!

Movie and Pizza

There is not much better than watching a movie with the family and then having a delicious pizza dinner. Or vice versa. AMC has recently reopened their doors and we could not be more delighted. Just visit here to see the latest showings and even purchase your tickets. RedBrick Pizza offers fire-roasted gourmet pizzas that are simply cheesy goodness!

A Sweet Finale

Cap off the evening with a sweet treat from Kilwins. Since it is fall, we suggest indulging in a creamy caramel apple. If an apple is not quite what you had in mind, you can never go wrong with chocolate-dipped Oreo or a slice of homemade fudge. Now, that is what we call a perfect family day at the Commons!
