Tis' the Grande Season
Emerald Grande turns into a magical place each December. Garland is strung through the entrances, trees are put up, and lights are twinkling along the Destin Harbor. With a perfect location on the Destin Harbor, it is no confusion why Emerald Grande is a sought-after December destination by its’ guests wanting to visit the Emerald Coast.
Not only does Emerald Grande provide a picture-perfect place this season, but there is so much going on that visitors and locals alike should not miss! Breakfast with Santa is one of our most popular events of the year. Open to all, you can join us at the Emerald Grande on December 11th, 12th, 18th, or 19th, for this festive event. This event takes place in the Emerald Grande Ballroom that is decked to the halls with all of the holiday decor that you could imagine. During Breakfast with Santa, guests will enjoy a Festive Cookie Decorating Station, Letters to Santa, and of course Visits with Santa! There is a special set menu for this event and reservations are required! Learn more here.
In addition to Breakfast with Santa, there are also many events taking place at HarborWalk Village for Holiday on the Harbor. When you stay at the Emerald Grande you are just an elevator ride away from everything happening at HarborWalk Village as well! One of our most exciting events is the Destin Boat Parade. Boats will light up the Destin Harbor with their Christmas lights on Sunday, December 12th at 6:00pm. The night concludes with a spectacular fireworks show and fire spinning on the Main Stage!
We do hope you’ll join us at the Emerald Grande this holiday season. Make your reservation today!
