Nowhere near the Cape, yet just as beachy and blissful, Nantucket Rainbow Cottages will host you 350ft (100m) away from Crystal Sands Beach. These quaint and colorful apartments have plenty of space for kids and adults to play when you all return from the beach or pool. Destin Commons is 0.5mi (0.8km) away. Here, you can buy groceries to bring back to your kitchen or dive into beer-battered cod at the underwater-themed Uncle Buck’s FishBowl & Grill.
