USA, Destin-Fort Walton Beach , Florida. September 14, 2020

Ready to explore a remote island, reel in a keeper, create a stunning sandcastle, and indulge in fresh, flavorful dishes? All of the above - and much more - are awaiting the whole family with the new Venture Out product launched by Destin-Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Designed to offer families a way to break free from the confines of home, these exclusive packages present an opportunity for kids to get outside in the open air and have an adventure complete with a local dining experience that's delivered directly to families in their own space.

Following the success of the destination's Adventure Anywhere virtual itineraries, Venture Out is the next step in welcoming guests back. These adventure packs, which were developed by moms and businesses owners who are lifelong residents of the destination, inspire a sense of discovery for children and build confidence in travel for parents. Guests can review offers via www.DestinFWB.com and directly chat with a local Adventure Guide to identify an individual family experience paired with Gulf-to-Table takeout to be enjoyed during the excursion, at home, or at their accommodation.

"The heart of ‘Venture Out' is partnership, not only between our local businesses, but between our visitors and the destination," said Jennifer Adams, director, Destin-Fort Walton Beach tourism. "We know there are so many questions surrounding travel right now and ‘Venture Out' connects us directly with guests so we can not only provide answers to their questions, but also a great option to have an adventure here, whether they're visiting for an afternoon or a week-long stay."

Available now on a limited-basis through November 30, 2020, guests can inquire about and enlist in the following Venture Out packages. With the travel climate constantly in flux, Venture Out offerings and special pricing, starting at $250, will be updated on an ongoing basis.

  • Catch & Cook - Spend the afternoon aboard the Fifth Day then have Destin Harbor's newest dining spot, East Pass Seafood & Oyster House cook your catch! A special to-go menu will be available (complete with sides) to enjoy back on your balcony upon your return or around the table should you chose to pick up dinner later in the evening.
  • Float & Feast - There are many ways to explore the harbor and National Seashore of Destin-Fort Walton Beach, but none as inviting as onboard a pontoon. Rent a pontoon with Island Watersports Company and enjoy a to-go lunch of fresh local seafood prepared by Rick's on the Island.
  • Sand Pails & Picnic - Build a castle you'll never forget with expert guidance from a certified Sandcastle Coach from Beach Sand Sculptures. Take a 2-hour Sandcastle Lesson with your coach and receive a sand sculpting kit to take home. Then enjoy a boxed lunch from Fudpucker's for a beach picnic in the natural beauty of Henderson Beach State Park.
  • Fish & Feast - Set course for an adventurous afternoon of private charter fishing with Hey Baby, and then let Harbor Docks cook your catch to perfection and serve it in style with sides to be enjoyed dockside or poolside back at your hotel.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
