5 ways to save on Spring Break vacation to Destin, Florida

Posted: Updated:

DESTIN, Fl. (WDRB) -- A Spring Break trip to Destin, Florida doesn't have to break the bank.

WDRB sent Chris Sutter to the Sunshine State to find the top five ways to save money on a Spring Break Trip.

Ecotourism: The Okaloosa fishing pier is just one spot to find great fish to eat on a budget. Travelers can also go kayaking or canoeing. An entire day at the pier will cost less than $30.

Dining without the middle man: Go directly to the fish market to find the freshest seafood available. Most sellers will explain how to prepare the fish. A "gulf to table" meal for a family of four should be about $60.

The Right Attraction: Attractions aren't hard to find in Destin, but finding one with a deal is a little tougher. A place like Wild Willy's offers a day's worth of fun for less than $80.

Lodging: There's lots of ways to stay in Destin, like private homes, condominiums, and hotels. If travelers find a room for cheap on a travel website, call the condo or hotel and let them know. It's a good way to avoid paying lots of fees. Tourism officials say no overnight stay in March or April should cost more than $180 a night.

Go to the Beach: Most beaches in Destin are free. Just make sure you bring a towel and beach chair. Henderson State Beach Park among several others in the area are open to the public daily at no cost.
