  • Fun things to do in Destin!?!?

    Liz and I were talking tonight and both want to Parasail this year in Destin. We never have done it. I think Chuck and his wife did that one year while attending the Fundament. I thought if there was enough interest, we could get a group rate. This way we could all enjoy it and get a discount in the process.

    For those of you bringing kids, there is Big Kahuna's Miniature Golf and Water Park and also THE TRACK - go carts and bumper boats. I think they have a bungee jump as well.

    Does anyone plan to dive or snorkel? Maybe we could run a boat or two just outside the pass and throw up the DIVE flags.

    I'm in for all the above.I have been diving in Destin before and it was alot of fun.You don't have to go far,but the really good stuff is out farther.I don't know what type of snorkeling there is to offer.

    Big Kahunas is fun too.We go and play putt-putt every year.The go cart track is pretty cool too.

    Parasailing is another great idea.It's been a long time since I've been and Lauren has never been.I'm game as long as there's somebody to babysit Sydney while Lauren and I cruise the skyways.[]

    A week leaves you plenty of time to do alot of things.I could stay on the run everyday or simply park my toes in the sand everyday all day.Either way works for me and my gang.

          Troy, you are in the car biz, where can I get that white protective plastic you see on the hoods of new cars for transport? Thinking about sticking that stuff on the bow of TC for long pulls.

                I think that's a great idea,that's why I didn't blast ya for it.Let me see what I can find out.It may leave a little residue,nothing sticky,but dirty.

                  even with the mud flaps, still getting some rock dings. I think you can have stuff thrown from cars going the opposite direction, and even stuff thrown over my vehicle and hitting the boat.

                    The idea of tubing behind 400 HP pushing a wave crushing hull makes me shake a bit[:0]

                    The idea of using my water proof gee wiz camera filming Chuck defy gravity makes me smile[]

                    Where do you tube in Destin? Bay or off shore?

                      When I was younger we all tubed behind a Sanger jet boat with a 460 ford. It was a wild ride. More than once my cousin swung us through the cattails at high speed and we came through looking like the Locness monster. Those were the days....[][][][][]

                        I am liking all these Ideas, and Allen, The gocarts are not only for kids.. I think we should get ever car and have a true out race around that puppy.. I think we could all find the kids in us again.. But if you ask my wife.. you dont have to search for the kid in me its on the surface[]

                          I agree Tim - Hey Dave - maybe we need a day of 1/2 a day at THE TRACK or Big Kahuna's to go screw around and have fun[]

                            Me and my family have been to three Funaments the first years after they started. We have missed the last couple of years because my daughters have been on traveling softball teams. This year they are not on traveling teams(I hope) and I am looking to make it back this year hopefully. I don't do any offshore fishing and did not participate in the fishing part of the funament(excetp one year we brought friends and her son won a junior division prize with a speckled trout cought in the Intercoastal) Anyway we spent a good bit of our time tubing and there is plenty of very nice places to tube inside the back bay area. There are plenty of areas north side of the back bay shoreline and smaller bays or open areas that are calm waters and nice scenery.
