Default Destin, Most Beautiful place in US

I don't know how many saw it this morning on GMA. Destin was voted the most beautifull place in the country. I agree it is beautiful, but it would be hard to rank it #1. It would be hard to pick one place. Lots of great places in this country.

I am glad we got some props on national TV, can't hurt the economy right?

I wouldn't live there if you paid me, but that's just me. Good for them.

Me either, it is nice at high tide though. But I like my " Country" living.

I agree with Capt. Byrd. Too many people now. They put that skyscraper right at the bridge. Ruined a beatiful site. As far as the point, it's nothing but a dog restroom. Can't stand the smell when you get close to it. Panama City Beach is no better. So many high rises that you can't see the beach from the road. Want beautiful Florida? Sanabel and Captiva Islands. Now that's beautiful.

1960 and 70s you had to drive a long distance to find a place to eat. The Donut Hole has photos of Destin before the overdevelopment. As much as some us gripe about the national seashore rangers, it is nice to be able to drive miles without having to peer around condos and hotels.

Seaside and Water colors were nice a few years ago but even they are overdevelopted now. Freeport has some places that are in the country enough and a short drive to the coast, but that will be gone soon too.

Just drove over to Destin and San Destin today. I had forgotten the traffic and that you couldn't see the water in most places. I did have a good grouper sandwich at the Florida House where the Broken Egg used to be.

I grew up going to Destin every summer for family vacation. That was 1947-1960, and it was beautiful then. When I see how much it has developed, it really makes me sad. I remember staying in Capt Dave Marlers motel/ cabins and swimming off the dock where the Florida Girl was docked. There was nothing on the peninsula and we would occasionally paddle a boat over there and walk to the beach. Oh for the good old days!

The Keys, Monterey Bay, CA a lot of NC, San Fransisco, CA and so on and so on. It's a oil spill reaction. It is very pretty but not top 10.
