Destin Commons is the place to see and be seen at the beach. The open-air lifestyle center has been at the heart of our community for over a decade and they’re only growing not only in size, also accolades. With more than 100 shops and restaurants, community events, and one of the best playgrounds in town, you’re sure to find a little fun for everyone.
Anchored by Bass Pro Shops, Belk and AMC Theater, Destin Commons has over 500,000 sq. ft. of space to explore. The outdoor destination has a lovely mix of international brands and local boutiques and eateries, as well as Class A office space.
Summertime brings little people in swim trunks and bathing suits to the pop up fountain at Destin Commons in search of respite from the heat. The Center Plaza features a soft-play kids playground and a 49-head pop fountain that keeps kiddos entertained for hours.
Enjoy events year round, like the annual Smoke on the Coast BBQ and Fireworks Festival that happens every Fourth of July weekend. Other events include Mardi Gras, Halloween Haunt, Santa’s Arrival and Black Friday, the busiest shopping day of the year.
Destin Commons may be home to great shopping, but the eating is just as good. The much anticipated Whole Foods is open, and if you’ve already paid a visit, then you know you can grab beach-ready food to go, brick oven pizza, a growler of beer, or just sit and enjoy a bite at the café.
Other great eateries include Zoe’s Kitchen, a healthy eating option the whole family is sure to love. Also swing by locally owned Formula Fresh for guilt-free snacks and drinks. To cure a more robust craving, La Famiglia prepares classic Italian favorites, while World of Beer has over 500 craft brews to choose from, along with hearty tavern food to soak it all up.
You'll be happy to feed a parking meter at Destin Commons for a premium parking space and for a great cause. With a focus on the local community, Coins for a Cause program gives the proceeds from the parking meters to local charities. The organizations benefit from donations made to their respective causes related to issues such as health, disabilities, education, the arts and children’s well-being. Coins For A Cause has donated over $1 million to area charities since its inception ten years ago. Premium parking spaces on the interior streets of Destin Commons cost $0.25 for fifteen minutes, or $1 per hour.
