We left camp early to get ahead of the weather. There's big storm coming this afternoon and the weather is looking iffy through Thursday. We decided it was a good time to get off the road.
Onward to Fort Walton and Destin. Found a great breakfast
joint. Went to the gates to check out Eglin AFB where Colin was born.
Our trip is coming to an end. We arrived at our last stop - Henderson State Park in Destin, Fl. around noon. Weather is threatening but not too bad. We walked the beach which has a red flag flying due to high surf and undertow. The water is so warm, it would have been fun going for a swim. Oh well. We hope to see the sun rise over the Gulf in the morning, then we'll be on the home stretch - 488 miles to Palm Harbor.
We arrived late Friday night the staff was friendly and helpful they allowed me to park my travel trailer with the assistance of their staff. The facilities were clean the bathrooms were amazingly clean. All around great trip camping on the beach. ...
Ignoring the clouds for now. We think we might head out to Seaside today for a bit of Truman Show.
We breakfasted at Pickles and had a good walk around Seaside. Girls bought some books at Sundog Books and we at great icecreams. ...
This huge bank of clouds off across the sea looks like trouble for today. Have now sat watching for half an hour and the direction seems to be to the West of us. Hurrah. There have been big lightning flashes inside the huge cloud but I am always just too slow with the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Resorts of Pelican Beach Destin
I've been going to Destin for several years and was reading some of the reviews posted here. This resort is one of best places to stay in my opinion. The property is Gulf Front with a good choice of floor plans. All of the units are indepently owned condos and fully furnished. The One Bedroom/ Two bath has a very functional floor plan. Outside of the bedroom, bunk beds are recessed in the hallway with a sleeper sofa in the family room. These additional sleeping accomodations, along with the second bath are attractive for two couples sharing a condo or a couple with children.
Stayed here from 09/04 thru 09/11/04. Booked thru Abbott Resorts and had to check in at an offsite location about a mile from the resort. Checked in at 5pm on Saturday evening with no problem. They thankfully had luggage carts so that I could lug all of our family's gear upstairs to the 11th floor. A helpful hint for the luggage handler in your party is don't use the central bank of elevators to take your gear upstairs. It is much faster to use the less frequently traveled elevators on the end of each wing. Also, they have a parking structure where you can park relatively close to the resort and keep your car out of direct sunlight.
We just returned from a week at the Pelican Beach. The room and view were perfect but the security in the room was questionable. The keys we were given were only to the bottom lock on the door. We were told they do not give a key to the dead bolt. The problem I have with this is that a simple credit card could get through the bottom lock with no problem at all. We had to make countless trips to our vehicle to lock our valuables up when we left the room. I don't know if all the condos locks are like that. Obviously, I didn't go around checking! I would not stay there again because of this.
Just returned from four nights at Pelican Beach during the last week of July. I was concerned that by renting only a 1 bedroom unit, that there would not be enough room for my husband and I, and our two teenage sons. My concerns were groundless. The unit was quite spacious and very, very clean. The oceanfront balcony was spacious and private, and quite clean, as well. The one drawback was that there did not appear to be quite enough beach space for the size of the resort. I would echo the thoughts of a previous reviewer who indicated it would probably be more beneficial to bring your own beach chairs and umbrella(s), as opposed to renting them. Apparently the rental "system" is that you start at the last row of chairs (nearest the condo, not the ocean) and work your way forward each day. You don't get to pick where you sit (except for perhaps the first day), as the chairs are assigned for you. Those who have their own chairs and umbrella get to set up nearest the ocean. Despite this minor inconvenience, we did have a marvelous time - especially our two teenage sons, who both enjoyed this vacation even more than the cruise we took last year. Even though the local deli at the resort didn't stay open as late as we would have liked, there were numerous fast food and other eating establishments nearby. I was disappointed to learn that although we had thought we had booked the family package special as indicated on their website, I learned after checking in that one has to "call" and request this package in order to obtain it. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort for families. Couples might want to look elsewhere, should they desire something a little more private.
This is a wonderful resort. They take excellent care of their guests and the grounds. There is 24 hour security and gated entrance. This is a great choice for a family vacation. We were there during spring break and they were very careful not to let anyone on the premises who did not wear a wristband.
Great place, will be back!
Used this site and others to search for a place to stay during our October vacation. The Pelican Beach Resort was great. We had a wonderful room, excellent view and super location. You may be able to stay elsewhere for less but the extra is worth it.
Perfect place to stay in Destin
We made reservations in Panama City and when we arrived we were horrified. This city was such a dump so we canceled our reservations and drove on to Destin. I am so glad we did. We stayed a week on the 19th floor at Pelican Beach and it was simply breathtaking. The condo was gorgeous and very clean. The prices were reasonable. We have already made reservations to go back again this year. Advice...skip Panama City and head to Pelican Beach in Destin!
#1416 at Pelican Beach Resort is AWESOME!!
We stayed in 1416 at Pelican Beach Resort in Destin, FL. This unit was absolutely beautiful and very well taken care of. The view of the Gulf from the balcony was breathtaking, we could even watch the dolphins play from the balcony. Pelican Beach is convenient to everything, shoppong, restraunts, water park, go carts, golf . . . The resort is family friendly and the grounds & pools were immaculate. We will definately return to Pelican Beach Resort and will be requesting to stay again in #1416!
What a great place! Everything is right there! You can stay at the resort and enjoy the beach, tiki hut for cocktails, swimming pools and have a nice fresh bagel in the morning from the bistro, if you want other things, they are right there in the vacinity and there are lots of things you can walk to!
We stayed in 1713 and got a phenomenal view of the ocean, beach and even the lights of Destin! The interior was well decorated and roomy...We are going back!
