We love dining out as a family, and along with our beautiful beaches and great local attractions, there are some amazing restaurants here! But, if your kids are picky eaters, you are on a tight budget, or you have a whole bunch of kids (like I do!)…eating out can turn into a bit of a chore sometimes.
We like to find places where the atmosphere is welcoming to kids, that way it’s less stressful for us! We have also learned certain restaurants with generous portions where we can share items. And here is a list of some places that kids eat free from Destin to 30a! This can help out your budget big time!
