If you don't have your own beach house, pretend this Destin mainstay is your own, with priceless Gulf views and umbrella-covered lounge chairs on the beach. Rustic, woody, and salty, with no décor worth talking about beyond the views, this isn't the Hamptons, and for that, we love it. After putting your toes in the sand, head up to the porch, er Porch's, and order the house specialty—the chargrilled amberjack sandwich. Add a beer or cocktail and just take in the views. The Back Porch also happens to be very kid-friendly, serving children's meals in a take-home Frisbee in lieu of a plate.
