Summer is definitely the time to be thinking about beach or water related adventures. Especially if you live in a warmer or more humid climate, you definitely want to find a way to beat the heat. Beach related activities had to take a back seat because of the pandemic, but there are plenty of ways to still enjoy the perfect beach vacation, without being unsafe. Vaccines are going out, but AVR isn’t going to abandon our customers safety like other “enterprises” might. We continue to raise the bar and set standards for the rest of the industry. This is more than just some rental or road trip, this is about your family's fun, comfort, and above all, safety. Come do travel the AVR way and do summer travel safe.

Summer brings about tons of travel to beach related areas, that it can make them all seem alike. AVR wanted to get outside the box and try to find a place that offered not only a beach, but relaxation and nature as well. Destin, Florida offers an amazing mix of activities that are sure to satisfy the pickiest of tastes. Destin is home to stunning white sandy beaches, emerald green water and known as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village”, Destin Florida sits in the Florida Panhandle on the Gulf of Mexico. This small beach town is iconic for its plentiful fishing, challenging golf courses, mouth-watering seafood restaurants and some of the best Gulf views and sunsets one will ever experience. Don’t think there is only water related views, Destin is home to some of the most beautiful hiking trails and parks. Interested in stars and space? Destin has some amazing stargazing opportunities for kids interested in space or romantic couples that want to spend the evening under the stars. Sea food is great, but not everyone loves it. Check out these local food favorites that most tourists don’t even know about. McGuire's Irish Pub, is a must try when visiting Destin. Don’t let the pub part fool you, it is extremely kid friendly and kids eat free on Tuesdays! They offer amazing homestyle and traditional Irish dishes, huge portions, great beer selections, and all at extremely affordable costs. If your family is one that can’t get enough seafood, we recommend Harbor Dock. This is the place the locals get their seafood and it is caught fresh daily. Lodging can be expensive when you consider the views and the fact it is a beach town, but Destin has some amazing options that won’t break the bank and still offer that luxurious view. We recommend Tops’L Beach and Racquet Resort. This is no ordinary hotel and most ‘rooms’ offer a full kitchen and washer/dryer unit. Great for messy kids! They have supervised kid activities and babysitting as well. They do charge for beach umbrella and seating if you rent it, but bring your own and skip that fee.

Not every beach vacation has to be the same just like every road trip doesn’t have to be some boring car ride. AVR is bringing back the road trip philosophy of the old, but making it into an unforgettable journey. Come do travel the AVR way and do summer travel safely this year.  AVR, because the journey should be just as fun as the destination.
