Baytown Wharf is located in Sandestin, just east of Destin, Florida. I had heard vague things about it and was pleasantly surprised to see how awesome this place was. I wish we had found it sooner. It made the perfect family day outing. It seems like a brand new area and has that New Orleans feel to it. I’m betting this is an awesome place for a night out. Sadly we never made it over with out the kids! It is north of highway 98 on the bay. It is full of shops, bars, restaurants, and activities including a fabulous playground. There is a hotel here too, so you could make it into a family weekend getaway. Here are some pictures!
From this picture you can see about a third of the village. You can zipline from that tower and then go through a ropes course. There were also multiple places with water features. I’m sure that on a hot day these turn into splash areas for the kids. There were several fun family games spread out through out the area., like hitting a golf ball out into a hole in the water and putting your kids inside those huge balls and watching them fall over in the water.
There are multiple wooden walkways around to see the bay and boats. There were tree houses that our kids had a lot of fun climbing in.
There is a large wooden park with tons for the kids to do. There is a good size area for smaller kids to play in near the back area.
There was also a bar right across from the playground where parents could get a drink and watch their kids play.
