X2 on Monterey, California. I think the Big Sur area is the most beautiful place in the world but the Big Island of Hawaii is in the running too. Spectacular beaches with different sand colors.

Complain about the traffic and then talk about California being beautiful. Yes CA is beautiful, but you can have it. It is way too congested. Like many on here, Destin is paradise lost. I hate Emerald Grande, it is Disney World on the panhandle.

We moved out of the harbor in the mid 70's and I was not happy about the move, but now I love being up in Bluewater. Best of both worlds. If we want to go into Destin we can and we do not have to fight all the traffic being up in Bluewater.

This is pic is wife, our two sons and me at the Robroy in Destin Harbor. The Robroy was just east of Destin Yacht Club. This is either in '89 or '90. Yes, the clothes can pretty much tell you the era.

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!
Moved their in 67 when there was a Crab island before the jettys

Kuaui , Hawaii is the most beautiful place I\'ve been in the country by far. I can\'t recommend it enough , definately the most beautiful of the hawaiian islands. As far as this area, I like being in downtown fort walton its still pretty peacefull as long as your off 98 and I can drive to destin in 5 minutes or drop the boat in the water and be at the pass in 10. Grew up in this area and haven\'t found one any where near here I like better.

Interesting Read.

I drive through and spend time in Destin quite often and enjoy it each and every time. I don't see anything about Destin that is something to look at as a negative. The most consistantly Beautiful water in our part of the world is in and around Destin. Great Resturants are within walking distance from almost anywhere in Destin. I truly don't see why or how anyone could say anything bad about Destin. As for it being more attractive in the past, I am sure it was what it was just like it is what it is now. If most would have owned the complete Destin Harbour years ago, it would be what it is today just the same.

Pine Mountain Georgia.

Ridgecrest North Carolina.

Augusta National....Amazes me that such a place can even exist.

The 17 Mile Drive is incredible. Check property values while your there.

The Marquesas Atoll in Late Fall. I always think I am Dreaming when there.

The Sun Rise 10 Miles South of Pensacola Pass. I wish I would have seen it this morning.

Naples Florida/Sanibel Island. My Retirement.

Madisonville Louisianna.

Golden Colorado.

Seaside California.

The Grand Canyon. Vague but the pretty much anywhere there.

Helen Georgia.

West Richmond Virgina.

South of Blacks Island in Port St. Joe Bay before Scallop Season starts

Cades Cove, Tennessee

Montana. I don't think I have ever seen anything there that wasn't beautiful.

St. George Island Bayside in the Fall.

Jackson Hole Wyoming

The Flint River south of Goat Mountain to Sprewell Bluff. I find it hard to feel I'm in Georgia when there.

Doak Cambell Stadium on Gameday Mornings

Rocky Head Alabama. Believe it.

Signal Mountain, Tennessee

Guntersville/Lake Guntersville in Early May.

Standing in Front of many of the Monuments in Washington DC.

Lake Tahoe

Hawks Cay in Spring

Lone Cypress/Pebble Beach

There are alot of beautiful places in our country and Destin is without any doubt deserving of a place among them. I can't understand why anyone, especially from our area would have a harsh word to say about Destin. I don't live in Destin or currently own property there, but I enjoy Destin every time I get the chance, and I am glad it is within easy reach.

Don't make a mistake of taking something wonderful for granted, get our and experience some of the incredible places we are fortunate to have amoung us.
