Bargain shopping in Destin adds to vacation appeal

Bargain shopping in Destin adds to vacation appeal: When we go to the beach, I don't usually go shopping unless it rains.

But on a recent getaway to the Destin area,�after a full morning of baking�on the glorious white�sandy beaches under the hot Florida sun,�I knew I needed a break and decided a few shopping stops might be in order.
