The “world’s luckiest fishing village,” as the residents like to call it, was first established by New England fisherman Leonard Destin in the 1840s. What started out as a small fishing village has grown into a popular Florida vacation destination. Visitors flock to its emerald-green waters, bright white sand beaches, upscale and outlet shopping complexes (the Silver Sands Factory Stores claims to be “the nation’s largest designer outlet center” based on number of designer-name stores), elegant restaurants, premier resorts and condo rentals. Fishing and seafood are still popular; Destin Fishing Rodeo and Destin Seafood Festival draw big crowds each October.1

Fort Walton Beach

Not everyone knows that Fort Walton Beach hosts its own Mardi Gras. It’s a fun, Florida-style spin on the renowned revelry, but at its heart, this city’s all about the water. Ultra-green Gulf waves lap at blinding-white shores where dunes, resorts and water sports abound. The Boardwalk on nearby Okaloosa Island is a family-friendly attraction, and Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park lets you watch dolphin and sea lion shows and peer into large-scale aquariums. History gets serious at the Indian Temple Mound Museum downtown and at Eglin Air Force Base’s Air Force Armament Museum, where you can view vintage aircraft for free.1

Destin/Fort Walton Beach is the fifth destination that Allegiant serves from Wichita.  Allegiant flies year-round to Las Vegas and Phoenix-Mesa, and seasonally to Los Angeles and Orlando-Sanford.  Allegiant is the only airline at ICT that offers nonstop service to Florida.

We are thrilled that Allegiant is adding service to this popular Florida destination. Our passengers love going to Florida, they want affordable vacations, and they want to fly nonstop. Allegiant makes that happen. Thank you, Allegiant, for choosing Wichita for this tremendous addition to our air service offerings.
