What You Need to Know: Assignment of Benefits
While we were spared widespread damage by recent hurricanes, we know our area could be affected by future storms. We want to ensure our members and the Destin community are aware of the potential for Assignment of Benefits scams following a storm.

Destin Area Visitor's & Relocation Guide
Whether your target market is local businesses and residents or those who visit us on an annual basis, the Destin Area Visitor's & Relocation Guide is a great value for your advertising dollar.  As the only advertising publication of the Destin Chamber, more than 17,500 copies are printed and distributed each year to members, visitors, and residents. 

New this year, there will not be a business directory section in the book. Instead, we will direct readers to our online directory, allowing us to provide the most up-to-date information about our members.
