Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Destin Commons’ expansion offers an exciting array of new stores and restaurants, including Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill, a unique aquatic under water themed restaurant with 16-lane bowling alley. You also won’t want to miss H& M, a European fashion retail giant offering designer inspired clothing for men, women and children, along with trendy accessories at a great price. With more than 10 new stores and restaurants to choose from, the best shopping in Destin just got a whole lot better.

With your T-shirt in hand and stores all visited, you’ll surely soon be ready to feed your hearty appetite with delicious tastings and BBQ samplings from more than twenty area restaurants and BBQ aficionados. Starting at 6 p.m., and for just $1 a sample, tempt your taste buds and vote for your favorite and this year’s Best BBQ People’s Choice winners. Proceeds from the event will benefit local charities, Fisher House and Building Homes for Heroes, as well as Children in Crisis and Sinfonia Gulf Coast. 

As you stroll through the center enjoying the sounds of Coconut Radio, Chris Alvarado, Jones & Company, Heritage and THE MAXX, prepare yourself for the most spectacular fireworks show on the Emerald Coast with the area’s first Independence Day celebration and the biggest fireworks display lighting up the sky with fireworks bursting from rooftops throughout the entire center.
