We’re Reinventing Your Idea of Long-Stay Vacations!

Long-stay vacations are extremely popular- they are the perfect alternative for those who want to skip winter, or simply dream of a prolonged, sun-fill vacation! The great thing about a long-stay vacation to Destin, FL is you get to spend the extra time to really connect with a place and experience it like a “local.” We believe when you’re visiting Florida’s Gulf Coast and it’s amazing food, music, sights, and people, you’re going to want to use that time to soak up as many experiences as you desire. Relaxing on the beach is great for some people. In Destin we deliver more and, best of all, the choice is always yours to do as much or as little as you would like!

 

BOOK EARLY & SAVE! Make your reservation by September 7, 2018 for January to March 2019 departures and SAVE up to $100 pp (discount based on length of trip). Call 1-800-668-6859 or contact your travel professional!

 

Southern hospitality makes Destin the Panhandle’s best-kept secret.

Destin is the deep south’s best-kept secret, tucked quietly under Alabama. TripAdvisor and Good Morning America single out this panhandle place for its natural beauty. Nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Chocktawhatchee Bay, Destin is the jewel of Florida’s Emerald Coast. It’s known as “the world’s luckiest fishing village,” so charter a boat and catch a big one!

Anglers aren’t the only ones who feel lucky to be here. Savvy landlubbers soak up more than sun in this special spot. Golf tops the list of must-do’s, so set a tee time at nearby Kelly Plantation golf course, Indian Bayou Golf Club, or Regatta Bay Golf and Country Club. Experience where the dolphins play with a cruise and fill your camera. Or slow down, slow way down and dig your toes into impossibly white sand that somehow, amazingly, remains cool even in the heat of the day!

Different from the east coast pomp, Destin enjoys a slower pace and a howdy y’all hospitality. Take advantage of the freshest seafood along the coast, and make it real with a side order of fried green tomatoes. Eat outdoors in the balmy air at day’s end and watch the waves roll in as the sun slips into the Gulf creating unbelievable sunsets. This is Florida at its finest!

Why is it called Express?

Our coaches travelling to Florida are equipped with a comfortable bunk enabling two drivers to alternately drive and sleep. This eliminates an overnight stay however, we do stop for comfort breaks every 3-4 hours en route. Our drivers are thoughtful and kind and will help guide the group through border crossings and restaurants stops.
