A bustling cobblestone town center perched at the edge of Choctawhatchee Bay, The Village of Baytowne Wharf is the thumping heart of the larger Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort that encompasses it. With dozens of quaint shops, excellent restaurants, nightclubs and plenty of attractions for kids (and kids at heart), Baytowne Wharf is a fun event-filled destination any time of day, night or year.
By day, kids fearlessly ascend rock walls, pilot remote control boats and whiz across the sky tethered to zip lines. But as the sun dips behind the yachts in the beautiful marina, live music begins to permeate these gas lamp-lit streets. When the kids are finally tucked away for the night, adults relish in Baytowne’s many mostly New Orleans-inspired restaurants and nightclubs.
ACME Oyster House is always bustling with activity, and it’s certainly a great spot to people-watch, as hundreds of pedestrians parade through this intersection. After dinner, the dueling piano players across the street at Rum Runners keep the crowds laughing (and drinking). But it’s Graffiti and The Funky Blues Shack that offers the best of both worlds, and it’s also Baytowne’s most authentic local experience (the original Graffiti still operates further west in Destin). Fun and funky folk art (all for sale) is littered across the walls here, where great rhythm and blues talents storm the stage almost every night.
