Florida's Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Offers a Free New Year's Eve Night*

The Countdown to Fun Has Officially Begun at the "Best" Resort in Destin

DESTIN, FL, Dec. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort today announced the countdown to a spectacular New Year's Eve celebration at what many consider one of North America's top spots for New Year's Eve and Christmas break.

Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is offering a FREE New Year's Eve night with the purchase of two nights, and a variety of great deals on accommodations to suit every size of group and budget. Families and couples can take advantage of time off from work and school between Christmas and New Year's Day with fun activities and complimentary amenities from the Beach to the Bay. In addition, Sandestin provides a way to celebrate the New Year in style with the convenience of being only an elevator ride away from home or a complimentary tram ride away.

It Takes A Village to Have Blast this New Year's Eve
The Village of Baytowne Wharf's end-of-year party is just one of the fun activities offered for New Year's Eve. Dance the night away and enjoy live bands and breathtaking fireworks as they light up the sky over the lagoon at midnight. Live music begins at 7 p.m. with The Amazing Hat Band playing Motown favorites. Then at 9:30 p.m. the BonJourneys will take the stage and help ring in the New Year.

Midnight and the first minutes of 2013 will be marked by the biggest fireworks display of the year that has made the Village famous. Watch in wonder as the Village makes this 2013 celebration sparkle with festive fanfare.

At the Marina Bar and Grill, just steps away at the Baytowne Marina, Sandestin will offer an added great spot to celebrate. The DJ hits the stage at 8 p.m. The Marina will be offering great cocktail specials all night and guests can enjoy their New Year's Eve bar menu as they take in the breathtaking views of the bay.

Sandestin also offers holiday fun activities for all ages. From the Village of Baytowne Wharf's outdoor ice skating rink, a festive light show set to music during the 12 Nights of Lights, the Baytowne Holiday Lantern Parade, and much more, this is the season at Sandestin you won't want to miss.

Added Convenience and Amenities
What makes Sandestin even more special for guests is the added convenience and safety of not driving.  People can stay just steps away from the action or take a convenient tram home for the evening.   Accommodations range from hotel style studio suites to three bedroom villas with rates starting at only $119 per night.  A stay at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort also includes value added amenities including complimentary tennis court time, fitness center access, bike rental and other amenities.

Public Parking and Shuttle Service Available for Holiday Visitors
For people who want to come to the resort only for New Year's festivities, Sandestin is offering five public parking lots within the gates of the resort and shuttle service to the Village of Baytowne Wharf for only $5 per vehicle, on a first come first serve basis.  Shuttle service will run from 6-11:30 p.m. to the Village. Starting at 12:15 p.m. shuttle service will resume, delivering guests back to their units and vehicles until 2 a.m. Guests are encouraged to plan their return schedule accordingly.

The resort also brings the latest technology and features a convenient APP for iPhone and Android users, providing guests with special discounts, information and conveniences.
