Best Vacation Spots for Groups | Destin and SunQuest Cruises

FlipKey, a Tripadvisor Company, has just named two Destin areas as great for groups and named SunQuest Cruises as one of the top things to do in the Destin area. Their list, that includes top vacation spots with the most rentals that sleep 8+, including Hawaii, Las Vegas and our own Miramar Beach and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. We couldn’t agree more.
 
Here is what they had to say:
 
“A group getaway sounds like a fun time – but securing a costly block of hotel rooms and dealing with the small space is difficult. Whether traveling with family or friends, book a vacation rental instead. You’ll have the space, privacy, and amenities you’re used to at home, for a fraction of the cost of a hotel.
 
Below we’ve listed the top vacation destinations with thousands of rentals on FlipKey that sleep 8 or more people. We’ve included restaurant, activity, and attraction suggestions, plus one of the best rentals offered in each destination.
 
About Santa Rosa Beach: Step outside your vacation rental onto white sand beaches overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Your group can swim, snorkel, sail, or sun amidst a clear blue water backdrop. Spend your days biking along the Santa Rosa coastline and through the nearby Point Washington State Forest, which includes more than 10 miles of trails. Also, be sure to explore the fine art galleries and museums, enjoy luxury spas, and indulge in world-class dining after the sun goes down.
 
Best option to Play Together: SunQuest Cruises Sunset Fine Dining Cruises
 
About Miramar Beach: Just a short drive from Destin along the Emerald Coast Parkway, Miramar Beach offers a postcard perfect Florida vacation. Miramar Beach is between Fort Walton Beach and Grayton Beach State Park, two of Florida’s most popular attractions. Your group will love the relative romantic quiet of Miramar and the friendly locals.”
