Perhaps the one downside to Destin water parks is that they’re only open during the summer. While temperatures remain comfortable in Destin throughout the year, summer water parks need those summer temperatures and just right weather in order to really thrive. However, that doesn’t mean that you should wait until next spring or summer to plan you’re 2019 water park adventure. In fact, there are several elements of your next Destin vacation that you’ll want to plan as far ahead of time as possible.

Research the Water Park

In Destin, the big water park is Big Kahuna’s Water & Adventure Park, notable as the largest water park on the Emerald Coast. Although their 2018 season is over, you can find prices for their 2019 season on their website. Do you need a season pass, or a ticket for the day? Will there be additional parts of the park that you might need to pay extra for? You should also look at the attractions, discussing with your family which rides you’ll want to try. Leave some of the planning open for the actual vacation, but this can be a good way to get everyone excited about the trip. Finally, if you know anyone who’s visited this water park in the past, ask for information that only a guest would know. Are there any tips for parking or where to eat?

Plan Your Budget

One of the most important aspects of any vacation is budget. How much will you need to do all the things you want to do for your vacation? Keep in mind that you probably won’t spend the entire time at the water park. You’ll want to budget for food and transportation costs, as well as potential shopping. You’ll want to visit the beach while you’re in Destin in the summer, that’s a given. Do you have swimwear, towels, beach bags, surfboards, or whatever else you might need? Finally, you should leave a little room in your budget to cushion for the unexpected.


It’s always a good idea to book your flight as early as possible if you plan on flying to Destin. The earlier you book your flight, the less you’ll have to pay, and booking too late can result in not being able to find a flight. It’s also important to consider where you’ll stay as early as possible, even earlier than booking your flight. Hotels fill up fast, especially in the summer. Vacation rentals are another option, as they’ll help your Destin vacation feel a little more authentic. But here again, the earlier you book the better. That’s why at Forever Vacation Rentals, you can book your rentals up to a year in advance.

It’s never too early to start looking forward to your summer water park adventure, and it will make it that much more exciting when summer comes back around. If you’re looking for a vacation rental for your trip, contact Forever Vacation Rentals today.
