Spending your Holiday on the coast and looking for activities? This Twin Isle Vacations’ guide will provide you with tons of ways to spend your Thanksgiving season in Destin!
Cooking and dining out are both fantastic options for Thanksgiving at the beach. Gorgeous fall weather, beautiful scenery, and delicious eats are pretty standard for Destin this time of year.
If you enjoy eating from home and aren’t feeling up to all the preparation necessary for a full Thanksgiving meal, you will be excited about Hebert’s which is in walking distance from Sandpiper Cove. While their specialty is meat (including turkey!), you can find a large variety of delicious sides to build the ultimate holiday dinner. While they aren’t open on Thanskgiving, they are open until 7 o’clock on November 21st so you can pre-order and swing by to satisfy all of your Thanksgiving meal needs! P.S. – Hebert’s also ships.
