Looking For a Romantic Getaway?

There is no better place to jettison your troubles and cares than a New England style bed and breakfast on sugar sand beaches. The Henderson Park Inn in Destin, Florida was rated the number one romantic hotel in America.

It is a 2017 Trip Advisor Travelers’ Choice award winner and beckons vacationers to enjoy the uncrowded beach with charming accommodations and great food. Some Victorian styled rooms have fireplaces for snuggling and whirlpool baths. Large verandas offer unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico and the professional staff personifies impeccable service.

The Kelly Plantation Golf Club has also reached number one status on Golf Advisor rankings for the state in 2016, pretty impressive considering the staggering volume of golf courses in Florida. The Fred Couples/Gene Bates design was built upon an old turpentine plantation. It is visually striking while maintaining the utmost care for an extremely sensitive environmental area. Kelly Plantation has an abundance of waterfront acreage, towering pines and panoramic views of Choctawhatchee Bay.

After a round of golf, head back to Henderson Park Inn and enjoy a stroll along the beach or dining at the Beach Walk restaurant. It was voted number one in Destin.

Equally impressive for food and wine is the Vin’tij Wine Boutique & Bistro. Both offer the best in gastronomical adventure along the Emerald Coast.
