Destin, on the other hand, is a full community of residents and vacationers with a world class assortment of restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and all the businesses that would make up a normal community. There are many different "communities" that make up Destin, such as Emerald Bay, Emerald Lakes, Crystal Beach, Indian Bayou, Frangista Beach,etc. Each community might have its own association, association dues, beach area, etc.
So, Bob, it depends on what you are looking for which one you would choose. If you are looking for gulf front property, Destin or Miramar Beach would be the place to look, but if you want a gated resort area, Sandestin would be the choice for you.
