Getaway to Destin’s Sandy Beaches

Getaway to Destin’s Sandy Beaches

Living in Georgia had its perks, we were right on the border with Alabama and only hours from Florida-Georgia line. This led to many visits to Panama city in the past. And our most recent, a trip Destin, Florida. We planned all the details of this trip about two weeks prior to traveling. As a birthday celebration for our oldest.

Let me tell you, it was a great trip. So, keep reading to check on my all recommendations…

Lodging

I will admit that because we stayed with the Destin Army Recreation Area; I am not familiar with the service or quality of other hotels in the area. But if you are a military family, I recommend that you check them out. The room was spacious, there was ample parking, lots of recreational options and great location – right off the water and close to other Destin amenities.

Breakfast

If you are in Destin or near, you have got to check out the Donut hole. It’s a diner style restaurant which I could compare to IHOP; but better.

Creamistry Katy’s – Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. Add it to your weekend list!

Creamistry Katy’s – Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream. Add it to your weekend list!

Here’s why…

Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream

Creamistry is not your typical ice cream shop. The ice cream here is ah-ma-zing! It’s fresh and made to order through a liquid nitrogen process that only takes minutes. And aren’t most people all about fresh ingredients these days?

The place is chic! The Creamologists make you feel welcomed; as soon as I walked in I was greeted.

Being my first time there and having done very little research, they were patient enough to explain the process to me. And answer a million questions about additional menu options; vegan, organic, dairy free options, etc…

Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

Houston Super Bowl; Eats and Entertainment

I cook at home for my family almost everyday but when we go out to eat there’s a handful of restaurant that always make the list.

Churrascos among my top choices and yes it is family friendly. We have been on several occasion, mostly for lunch. I recommend this place because although of its upscale atmosphere, the prices are affordable. The food is delicious and the drinks are cheap. Speaking of drinks, they have happy hour everyday, from 4PM to 7PM. There are several locations in Houston but the closest to all the Super Bowl activities is Churrascos River Oaks; Churrascos Memorial and Churrascos Westheimer are not too far.

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

Panama: Part III – Bocas del Toro

If you have been following along my Panama adventure, thanks for coming back to read the last post in the series! If you’re just joining me, thanks for visiting, you can catch up here.

On the previous post, I shared details about a five-point tour that we did upon arriving in Bocas del Toro. That tour was great for two reasons. One, it was an all day event and two, we got to see a lot more than we would have on our own.

Panama: Part II – Bocas del Toro

Before our trip to Panama one thing was certain – aside from visiting friends and family – we wanted to take on an adventure. The kind of adventure that goes on your bucket list and you feel accomplished to scratch off once you’ve done it. Bocas del Toro was just that for us, one heck of an adventure. Am I longing to go back? Absolutely! Am I trying to persuade people to visit? Maybe…

And if I was asked to sum up Bocas del toro in as few words as possible. I’d say it is Panama’s hidden gem.

Panama: Part I

Panama: Part I

If you follow me on Instagram, you have seen posts from my busy holiday vacation. I started out driving from Texas to Georgia – making a one night layover in Mississippi – to spend Christmas with my family. Then from Georgia, I flew to Panama City, Panama with my husband. A vacation that we had been looking forward to, for months. Somewhat of a honey moon for us, since our littles stayed back in Georgia with my family.

We planned a ten day itinerary, although the first and last day were spent traveling. Why Panama?! We chose this destination because it is still home for me, I have family and friends there too. Also, because my husband had visited once before and fallen in love with it. But this trip was a little different since we visited a few new places and ventured further away from the city. Our plans included a visit Aguadulce and Bocas del Toro, but ended up adding Colón and Coronado to the list.
