A month filled with romance, warmer weather, and even a leap year. It’s February, and in Destin, it’s all about fun and adventure. Home to the luckiest fishing village and emerald waters, Destin has it going on. You might be too blinded by the chaos of the season to think of things to do on your Destin February vacation. Not to worry, we have a list of things to do.
Things to Do in Destin, Florida, in February
Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park
We heard you’re looking for an adventure, and that’s what you’ll get—heck, it’s in the name. At Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park, half the activity is in the title. You can expect giant trampolines everywhere you turn, but it’s not just about your basic trampolines. Here you can find Climbing Hill, the perfect place to climb AND jump. Then there’s the next stop which will have you hearing the Ying Yang Twins’ “drop” mainly because it’s called The Drop Zone, you can probably imagine what happens there. There’s also just the all-around Adventure Zone; and even a zone called The Wipeout, which we promise is the only time a wipeout can be considered fun. The excitement doesn’t stop there; there’s a Space Jam-style Slam Dunk Zone, Dodgeball, Runway, and Battle Beam. We haven’t even gotten to the laser tag or virtual reality. This is the kind of place where it would be nearly impossible not to have fun; come and see for yourself.
Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone
Onward to yet another February adventure: Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone is north west Florida’s largest family entertainment center, so if you thought the last place was wild, wait until you hear about this one. Just inside alone is 17,000 square feet, where you can find things like a redemption arcade, a 4D movie theater, laser tag, and Yogos Mogos, which is delicious frozen yogurt with all the toppings—the perfect sweet treat after the thrills. Now for the outside fun starting with prehistoric creatures…not real ones unfortunately but the next best thing, animatronic dinosaurs AND golf, the two together make golf extra fun. Not into dinosaurs? How about pirates? They have that too. If you feel like getting a workout in, try out their 60-foot rope course. And just to add some more trampolines in there, there’s also the bungee trampoline. Although this may seem like a lot, there’s even more joy to be had; check out the website for more info.
Rent a Bike from Fun Pug Bike Rentals
Spend a few hours riding along with a bike from Fun Pug Bike Rentals. Owned by Casey & Tara, they started their business in 2018. Fun Pug Bikes offers affordable bike rentals and amazing customer service. As for the collection of bikes, it is plentiful. You have your regular beach cruisers, kids’ bikes, and electric bikes. Then there are specialty bikes, including adorable 3-wheeler bikes with baskets. At Fun Pug Bikes, they make sure to have an option that best suits your vacation needs. Once you’ve got your bike in tow, it’s off into the wind. Biking carries many benefits like increasing lung capacity and brain power. Biking is also great for the environment as an alternative to cars and for avoiding pollution. Riding bikes around Destin has so many benefits, but it’s also merrymaking! Ride solo or bring a friend.
Fat Daddy’s Arcade
Located next to Fudpucker in Destin, FL, is another place of extreme happiness. Fat Daddy’s Arcade leads with the motto of Play. Win. Repeat. The fun to be had is no secret; it’s in the name. But what makes this place special is the incredible amount of games. Maybe you’ve out-arcaded yourself, which is understandable considering this list. Fat Daddy’s has more than arcade games. Some of their most popular are Ticket Time, Wizard of Oz, The Giant, Prize Cranes, Ice Ball, Air Hockey, Hoops, Big Bass Wheel, and Jurassic Park. This place is like a less risky and child-friendly casino. Go and be a winner, winner chicken dinner no matter how well you play.
When it comes to places to eat, nothing beats a name like “Crab Trap.” When in Florida, try some seafood. Head on over to the original Crab Trap that was created in 1991 at James Lee Park in Destin. This restaurant is known for its fresh fish, all thanks to their wild fish processing facility, known as the Seafood Commissary. When it comes to the dishes, you must try their signature hot crab dip or Alaskan crab legs. Enjoy a tasty meal with a view for an experience you won’t forget.
Finally, and above all, your vacation needs a ride on one of our pontoons. Enjoy a licensed captain, our 15’ Lilypad, and a Bluetooth speaker to jive to your favorite February tunes. Enjoy the luxurious ease of a pontoon boat ride where you can lounge around, go for a swim, and play with one of our many sea toys. Boating brings the luxury you deserve; bring your friends and have the moment of a lifetime.
Whether you spend your February in Destin defying gravity at Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park, exploring the wonders of Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone, or embarking on a scenic bike ride with Fun Pug Bike Rentals, this month promises exhilarating experiences. Live your life with the sunshine, laughter, and the magic of Destin.
