3 Reasons Why You Should Visit Destin in April
Events and Weather
The weather in Destin around April is a bit more moderate than it is in the summer months. The water temperature sits around the 70s while the air temperatures will hover between the 70s to the 80s. The moderate temperature makes for a great time for all of the family to gather or for potential spring break trips.
If you are looking to attend an event in Destin this is a great month for it! The annual 30A Sand Rover Rally presented by Land Rover is a fun event to attend or watch in the area for all car fans. If you are looking for a fun bite to eat and something to drink, the Tequila & Tacos Fest is a great way to cap the end of April.
Held at the Baytowne Wharf, the event is a big draw for fans of authentic tacos, good tequila, and a great time. The Best Taco contest is a highlight we particularly enjoy!
Reduced Crowds and Traffic
Another benefit to coming and visiting during April is the reduced crowds and traffic. If you are driving and visiting us, it is only reasonable that you would want to avoid traffic while you are on vacation. With fewer crowds, there is less tourist traffic leaving more time for you to relax and get out of bed later so you can maximize how much you enjoy your vacation.
With fewer people on the beach, you can get a better spot to sit and relax without jostling for position or having your view crowded by big tents or throngs of people. It is truly a time for anyone looking to get away without hassle or worries.
