One of our favorite months at the beach has arrived. MAY! Not only is it Mother’s Day Month (celebraaate — in our best “Holiday” Madonna voice) but it’s also that magical combination of perfect weather with the beach all to ourselves (mostly) in the gap between spring and summer breakers! Woop!
Here’s our list of all the things happening in Destin and along 30a. What are you up to this month?! As usual, if we missed something, let us know and we’ll get it added. We’ll update this post with local, mom-friendly and family-friendly activities throughout the month, so check back often!
