Vision Airlines Flies the Destin Flight From Memphis Area

A few weeks ago I did a post about vision airlines flying into the Destin/Fort Walton area with regular flights.

In the Memphis commercial appeal this morning I read about Vision airlines choosing Tunica,Mississippi as their Memphis area hub for their flights to the Destin area.

Here is an excerpt from that article:

Vision is offering introductory fares of $39 each way between Tunica and Fort Walton Beach/Destin. The sale, available only at, ends at 11 p.m. Sunday for travel between June 1 and July 15. Reg­ular fares are $99 each way. Baggage fees vary. Service will be aboard a 32-seat Dornier 328 turboprop. Flights will depart Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Here is a link to an earlier post that has the other hubs for flights to the Destin area aboard Vision Airlines.

Update: 6/29/2013

We now have airline service from Memphis to Destin once again. 

Here is a link to Southern Airways Express.

This is big news for Memphis and Destin. This small airline flies Cessna 208 Caravans and Grand Caravans. There are two small airports that they use in Memphis and they fly right into Destin's small airport (DTS) where I have been flying my plane into.

With advance notice, Enterprize and Hertz rental cars are available there at the terminal.Here is the website for the terminal and rental cars.

P.S. My condo at the Pelican Beach Resort is located only about a mile from the airport so call or text me direct at 731-589-7841 to get reservations.

Week In May Just Came Available In Pelican Beach Resort

It is not often that I have a cancellation but it just happened for a 7 day rental beginning May 14, 2011.

Last night we had some pretty wicked weather come through west Tennessee and it hit the house of one of the renters slated to check in on those dates.

Here is a great opportunity to grab a last minute reservation at the Destin Pelican Beach Resort. I will also advertise this on my Destin Florida VRBO site.

Call or text me at 731-589-7841 and I will quote you a great rate and book you into a fantastic stay and the nicest resort in Destin,Florida.

Update: Sorry, most of those dates now gone!

Looking to Book But Condo Not Available

As you can see on my calendar over on the left, my Destin Pelican Beach Resort unit #1004 is pretty booked for the season. However, don't despair as we have several options available to offer you.

Let me know the dates that you are interested in and I will make sure I do not have someone wanting to cancel for those dates. Also, I have 2 friends that own 3 different units in the Pelican Beach Resort Destin and I can check on availability in their units. One of those is a 1 bedroom and the other two are 2 bedrooms.

There is a third card up my sleeve if those options do not work so please contact me Mike Frazier(by voice or text) at 731-589-7841 if you are having a hard time finding availability at the Pelican Beach Resort.

Did You Ever Watch Someone Fish For Pompano

During our short Destin Pelican Beach Resort vacation earlier this week, I observed some guys fishing for Pompano just off the beach. Later in the evening I ran into some guys at Walmart shopping for goodies to take on their pompano fishing trip.

These guys at Walmart told us that pompano are some of the best eating salt water fish.

We had a great vacation with the temperature in the low 80's and not a cloud in the sky.

Here are some pictures of the guys pompano fishing just off the beach and a picture of what a pompano looks like. Also, here is the fishing license requirements to be able to salt water fish.

Weather Perfect Here At Pelican Beach Resort

My wife and I arrived here last night at midnight and woke up this morning to a beautiful sun soaked day. I have the patio door open listening to the waves coming ashore while I write this Destin Pelican Beach Resort post.

I saw several fishing boats head out this morning. Looking in the Destin Log newspaper this morning I see that the Kings are inashore with many being caught with live bait and dead bait. It also looks like they have a cobia fishing contest going with some pretty big catches.

We still have a few openings on our calendar over on the right. I had a VRBO inquiry this morning asking about rates and availability for October 1-7. I offered her a great rate but told her those dates will go pretty quickly. My cell phone number if you want to inquire about renting my unit at the Pelican Beach Resort Destin is 731-589-7841.

The beach is calling so heading out for some suntime.

Unit #1004 Owners Headed To Destin Saturday

My wife and I are like a couple of kids in a candy store. we are so excited that we are headed to the Destin Pelican Beach Resort.

The last time I was there was about 5 weeks ago but I didn't have any R&R when I was there. As you can see in an earlier post, I spent the entire trip remodeling the kitchen and making other upgrades.

My wife hasn't seen the improvements first hand but she will this weekend. I plan to be just like any vacationer to Destin,Florida and enjoy my trip.

Since the upgrades our calendar has been quickly filling up but we still have some openings for our beachfront condo rental in Destin. Call or text me at 731-589-7841 to book your vacation to paradise.
