Destin Florida is known to some as the luckiest fishing village in the world. Founded in the early 1800’s, much of the city’s growth was due to the robust commercial fishing industry. The invention of the motorboat set fire to the already strong commercial fishing industry. Commercial fishing later gave way to tourist-based fishing as commercial net fishing was banned in the area.
The Destin area erives a large part of it’s yearly revenue to a very unique and lively tourism business. While the local businesses are very diverse, it’s not hard to imagine most include some mixture of beach, water and fishing activities.
