I go to Dr.Harris at the Anti-Aging Clinic which is inside Destin Plastic Surgery Center. He is just the sweetest most caring doctor and he is trained on every kind of laser. I have completed my underarm hair removal and my full bikini hair removal. The price is very reasonable, $150 per visit for both underams or whole bikini. When I lived in Atlanta I had called my dermatologist office and they charged $300 per visit and you had to buy a package of 10 visits. It only took me 6 visits to do my underarms. Also when I was having my bikini done Dr. Harris would re-do my underams for good measure at no charge.
Dr. Harris also removes my freckles and brown spots and removed 2 birth marks I had no idea could be removed.
The staff is so professional and kind and non-judgemental, I always feel so comfortable and like I matter.
I have just had my first botox treatment from Bill Edelman, their expert and it was so fast and easy.
I love love love this place and the good care they take of me.
PROS: Permanent Hair and Freckles/Birth Mark Removal, Awesome Doctors and Staff
CONS: none this place is great
I love this urgent care center. They don't usually have long waits and they are thorough. My friend takes her 84-year old mother there whenever she has a TMA because it is closer than the hospitals and cheaper and faster than an ER visit. I went a couple months ago and there was only one person ahead of me and was taken back quickly. The doctor was very nice and instilled trust in me. I do not have insurance and the visit was $250, i consider this reasonable.
PROS: Fast Service, Nice Personnel
CONS: Hard to find at night and weird entrance due to construction
I love this place! They bake on premises using healthful (often organic) ingredients and no preservatives. They have a glass case with all kinds of special treats priced individually, and they have a table filled with all kinds of baked goods that you can mix and match and pay by the pound. They also have a whole rawhide chews section that you can mix and match by the pound. They have all kinds of cute accessories and toys for dogs and humans. Every time dog-owning friends and relatives come to Destin I take them by to get treats for their dogs.
PROS: Organic and Healthy ingredients and mix and match pricing
I have never actually had any work done by Dr. Corley himself other than my twice a year examination. His staff is awesome, even though I only go twice a year they remember me. His hygenist works quickly and doesn't try to talk your ear off or ask you a bunch of questions while you have tools in your mouth. When they were backed up after Hurricane Ivan due to rescheduling they brought in a temp hygenist so we patients didn't have to be put off while they played catch-up.
I wish he took Aetna insurance but he doesn't and has no plans to add it, so I always have to pay the overage for using an out of plan dentist, buy they are worth it!
PROS: Excellent chairside manner from Doctor and staff
CONS: Doesn't take Aetna, won't issue courtesy credits at all to help offset
Our condo did not have washer/dryer hook-up and we hired Barry Atkinson to come out and intall the plumbing/pipe so we could install a washer. Barry came right when he said he would and did a great job for us. He is very courteous and worked quickly. He only charges $65 per hour which is very reasonable in this area of Florida.
PROS: Did not have to wait for apt, came right out and on time.
We were so happy when Rave came to Destin! All 14 theaters have nice stadium seating and w/14 theaters we can have all thecurrent movies showing, not just some like the smaller theater. We love love love the 3 machines out front where you can purchase tickers w/a credit card w/out standing in line for a ticket seller. Also love that they sell slushee style drinks!
PROS: Very comfortable and nice
CONS: long lines
We live in Destin and love Big Kahunas water park because they never seem to have super long lines like water parks in major metropolitan cities, and they have just the right mix of water rides and pools. The price is very reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxing and cool. Your bare feet never get hot here, it is well planned out. We don't enjoy their food, but since the parking lot is right there (not 1/2 mile away like other parks) it is super easy to pop out to eat and then come right back. They have lots of shady areas for non-water lovers.
PROS: Bigger than it looks from the Road, lots of fun
CONS: Not so great food, many employees don't speak good English
We live in Destin and this our favorite place for a fresh fish or sushi meal. We always order off the specials board, never the menu. The chef creates sauces based on the fresh fish he buys the night before or that morning and these are always on the board. Their Asian Chef also has a daily special dish on the board based on what she has fresh. We do order off her sushi menu though, it is always fresh and tastes excellent. Prices are very reasonable.
PROS: Always a Delicous Meal, no complaints
CONS: parking can be tight
I lived in Destin for about 16 months and visited all the spas inside the big resorts and a couple of private salons before I found Avantgarde. I could NOT get a great cut before them and was so relieved to find my stylist, Christina, and the natural Aveda products too. It is a small building so quarters are a little close, but is is so worth it. If Christina is out I feel comfortable going to any of the other stylists on staff. And they don't seem to overbook my old salon either!
PROS: Stylists that are up-to-date and talented, Aveda products
CONS: minimal parking and close quarters
We take all of our company to eat breakfast here, it is absolutely the best breakfast in Destin. Huge and creative menu, I almost always order the Greek Isle Wrap which is scramble eggs, feta cheese and tomatoes wrapped in a flour tortilla and served w/this sour cream sauce that I adore.
We have never had a bad experience and there is something for everyone. At lunch I love their vegetarian sandwich on oatmeal bread, it is huge yet light and refreshing. And I always drink the raspberry iced tea! The staff is great, the food is great, you must eat there!
PROS: Great Staff, Creative Choices
CONS: Usually a wait for a table
