Vacation Rentals in Destin – After the Oil Spill

Vacation rentals in Destin, FL are booking up fast for spring vacations, a prime indicator that public confidence has been restored in the Gulf and that the fears caused by the oil spill have been relieved.


Destin, FL, Jan. 27, 2012 – Despite numerous predictions to the contrary, tourism in the Destin, FL area on the Gulf Coast has not only recovered but is booming well above projections in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon explosion. After the spill leaked more than 200 million gallons of oil into the waters of the gulf, cancellations poured in to hotels and resorts surrounding the area. Tourism was practically dead in the gulf region for 2010 and experts predicted it would be years for it to be back to normal. Fortunately, all the projections were wrong.

The tourist season of 2011, while not back to pre-spill numbers, was up dramatically from what the experts had proclaimed and by the looks of the numbers, 2012 will set new records for gulf states. Resorts and hotels along the Florida panhandle are seeing reservations pour in for the upcoming spring. Prime destination spots like that of Destin, FL, are preparing for what appears to be a banner season as the vacation rentals in Destin are being snapped up daily.

The beaches in Destin were largely unaffected by the oil spill to begin with but rumors and speculation about the outcome had vacationers staying away from the gulf. Many videos had been captured and posted in places like, showing clean sand and clear water in the summer of 2010, but fear of oil and tarballs coming to shore had kept tourists away in droves. As these videos and testimony from people who visited Destin spread proof of how unaffected the area’s beaches really were, the public was made aware of the truth of the situation.

Resorts such as the Edgewater Beach Condominiums are happy and relieved to see the resurgence of vacation rentals. Destin, FL, has long been a prime spot along the panhandle for vacationers of all types. With miles of pure, white sand beaches and many exciting attractions, the area draws the snowbirds from the north during the winter as well as sports fishermen, beach-goers, couples and families throughout the season.
