Fall Family Break : Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Florida

I do not know about you, but, this year especially, our family needs a fall family break. We just want to get away somewhere… together. Like all 7 of us for a change. Now, I think we have found the perfect location: Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Florida.

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort

Only my 9 year old daughter and I have ever even been to Destin, Florida. The whole time we were there we could only talk about how much we wanted to bring everyone else. Therefore, I am so excited to have that opportunity. We will be driving to Destin from Dallas and spending 4 days on the white sand beaches of Northwest Florida. In fact, Sandestin® includes more than 7 miles of beaches, as well as pristine bay front. But that is not all.
