Plan the Perfect Emerald Coast Getaway for Mom

October 12, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted many challenges for us all, but research shows that moms were among the hardest hit by the effects of the pandemic. A brief lockdown to flatten the curve turned into months of working from home, online schooling the kids, added uncertainty, extra worries about health, and off-the-charts cabin fever for parents and kids alike. Moms were pushed to find new and creative ways to educate and entertain the kids, grocery shop, and find some balance within the new norm of lockdowns and isolation.

MOMosa Vacation Ideas

Newman-Dailey partners with Xplorie to enhance the guest experience even further. Your MOMosa vacation includes free activities, tours and attractions for every day of your relaxing beach break in Destin.

Whether you’re planning a break with your girlfriends or taking a hiatus from parenthood on a momcation (yes, it’s a thing!), here are some ideas to ensure you relax, unwind and rejuvenate.


Walk the gorgeous beaches of the Emerald Coast

The Destin beaches are beautiful during the fall months with warm sunny days, comfortable water temperatures for watersports (or even a dip in the warm water), and fewer crowds. Relax and sunbathe on the sugar-white sands, take a leisurely beach walk along the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, or get active with a paddle board or a kayak on the emerald-green waters.

Rent a bike and take a cruise along the Timpoochee Trail, a 20-mile paved bike path along the Scenic Highway 30A from Dune Allen Beach to Rosemary Beach. The Timpooche Trail passes through Destin’s top coastal communities and state parks with unique dune lakes, easy beach access, and enticing restaurants, bars, and cafes to refuel along the way.

Beach yoga for ultimate relaxation!

The Emerald Coast is a shoppers’ paradise, and we all know that moms love to shop! Treat yourself to some well-deserved retail therapy at the one-of-a-kind boutiques and galleries, or scoop some savings on a designer outfit at the Silver Sands Premium Outlets. You can’t go home empty-handed!

Your MOMosa vacation is all about you so indulge a little with a pampering spa day at the Salamander Spa in Crystal Beach or a calming yoga class on the beach overlooking the sparkling emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Nothing beats a sunset on the Emerald Coast and there are plenty of ways to enjoy it! Book a beach bonfire, reserve your space on a waterfront patio, or pack your MOMosa soft side cooler with sundowners and head out on a sunset dolphin cruise from Okaloosa Island to the Destin Harbor for an unforgettable Destin dolphin encounter.

Get a bird’s eye view of Destin!

For serene solitude (or a fun tandem ride with your girlfriends) take to the skies on a parasailing tour for a birds-eye view of Destin, Fort Walton, Okaloosa Island, and the crystal clear waters teeming with spectacular marine wildlife.

Or plan a night of nothing! Order take-out from a local restaurant, pour your favorite wine or MOMosa cocktail, curl up on the couch and enjoy an Xplorie movie night from the comfort of your Newman-Dailey vacation home.
