Rain or shine, there’s always fun for kids in Miramar Beach
Miramar Beach is a popular family destination for dozens of awesome reasons, ranging from perfect kite-flying beaches to a video arcade complete with a laser maze. True confession – photographing kids having fun is one of our favorite things to do. That’s one of the reasons we love our new location in Miramar Beach — there are so many awesome, fun things for kids to do there. Here are a few of our favorite spots to catch kids having fun on film.
Blast Arcade and Laser Maze
Located in The Village of Baytowne Wharf at Sandestin, Blast Arcade is one of the best places for your kids to get their video game fix. It features skee ball, arcade games, a laser maze and the Blast ‘em Laser Shooting Gallery. Blast has been voted Best Place to Take the Kids and Best Place for Teens in Destin. They offer a great deal on birthday parties (or any special event, really) — and to make it even more fun, it’s right next door to Moo La La Ice Cream and Desserts, and around the corner from the playground at the Sandestin.
Monster Mini Golf
Need a break from the beach? Monster Mini Golf’s got you. The indoor mini golf chain’s Miramar Beach location offers everything you and the kids need to kill a fun couple of hours — with black light! You can play a round (or four) of mini golf or play a quick game of laser tag before or after hitting the arcade to stoke the excitement and win awesome prizes. The staff is super, the activities are a blast, and there are daily specials to help you keep the budget in check. (Bonus: it’s a fun date night destination for the young at heart.)
Club KZ at Sandestin Golf Club and Resort
The Sandestin is one of the most popular family resorts on the Emerald Coast. Families with kids can take advantage of Club KZ, for children ages four and older. The Club offers day and evening programming that include a full schedule of fun and educational activities to keep kids busy and engaged while the adults enjoy a round of golf or a date night at one of the Sandestin’s clubs or restaurants.
Austin Magee’s Surf School
Located in Seaside and serving the entire Emerald Coast, Austin Magee’s Surf School offers a range of activities to help get your kids up on their boards and enjoying the surf. You can book private lessons, join a group class or take a half-hour mini lesson for kids ages 5 and up. All equipment needed for the lesson is provided, and you can rent equipment for your own adventures. It’s a great way to start your Miramar Beach vacation — and Smiles Beach Photos will be happy to capture all the fun action.
30A Beach Bonfires
Is there a more perfect way to end the day than with a bonfire on the beach? 30A Beach Bonfires makes it easy on you by providing everything you need for a fun family evening, including the permits, the firewood and the chairs. They’ll even provide the ingredients for S’mores if you request them. You can book bonfires for parties of 4 to 20 people — but they recommend booking at least a week in advance to make sure there’s plenty of time to take care of all the details.
Don’t forget the vacation photos! Check in with Smiles Beach Photos to set up a booking or onsite photo shoot to make sure you capture all the family memories for your family photo album.
