Coolest Specialty Meat Market on the Coast

Hebert’s Specialty Meats


Looking for true Cajun favorites to serve in your own home? Hebert’s Specialty Meats is your go-to place here On the Coast! With two locations to serve you, it’s convenient to both Destin and Sandestin visitors and locals! 

Owned and operated by true Cajun, Walter Hidalgo along with partners Sean and Kelli Louvierre, Hebert’s opened the first Emerald Coast location in June 2018. After knowing Sammy Hebert, the original founder of Hebert’s Specialty Meats, for 35 years, Hidalgo decided to bring his own part of the company to the Emerald Coast. After visiting the area since 1980, Hidalgo saw a need for true Cajun-style cuisine.

Hebert’s Specialty Meats originally opened in 1984 in Maurice, Louisiana. As the home of the original deboned stuffed poultry, Hebert’s offers all of the Cajun favorites including hot boudin, turduckens, boneless stuffed chicken, boneless stuffed turkey, shrimp or crawfish etouffee, shrimp and crab stuffing, andouille, crawfish pie, a variety of green onion sausages and much more, all served daily.

They also offer easy grab-and-go options for customers to pick up on their way home from work or for an easy yet flavorful weeknight dinner. The store also carries pre-cooked options that customers can easily heat up at home.

Coolest Ice Cream

Frozen Dune Rolled Ice Cream and Coffee


Love ice cream but want to try something new? Head on over to Frozen Dune to try some rolled ice cream and coffee. 

Rolled ice cream? Yes!  Also known as stir-fried ice cream, a mixture of milk, cream and sugar is poured onto an ice-cold metal plate to freeze. Then, your choice of ingredients and toppings - a selection varying from Oreos, strawberries or marshmallows - is mixed in and the ice cream is smoothed flat across the metal plate. Slowly, the ice cream is scraped off in thin spiraling curls and rolls, compiling it all into a cup ready to share.

The owner of the Frozen Dune restaurant was first introduced to Thailand’s stir-fried ice cream in New York City. This unique frozen dessert immediately became popular in the northeastern United States in 2015. While living in Destin, the owner missed the delicious ice cream treat, so lucky for us, he decided to bring this delicacy to the Emerald Coast.

Frozen Dune also serves something else very unique to our coast. How about your picture in a milk foam drink! All you have to do is order one of the fruity-flavored black teas with milk foam. The staff will then take a photo of you, your kiddo, you pet, whatever, and the printer zaps the picture on the foam! It’s magic! Pretty cool right?

This is great place for something new. Located on Old Highway 98 right across from the beach in Miramar, Frozen Dune is the perfect stop after a sunny day of swimming on the coast.  All smiles at Frozen Dune.

Cool Factors:              Rolled Thai ice cream, Selfie on your drink, Customization of your treat, Fun to watch them make your dessert

Electric Bikes!

Coastal Cruisers

Pedego Electric Bikes

Big Daddy Bikes

Birds, Limes and Jumps. You can easily pick up these electric scooters in big cities all across the country.  Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately as some might think), these scooters are not readily available to us here On the Coast. What IS available, though, are electric bikes! And we are super fans of them.

Electric bikes allow you to tour all our coastal towns in a day and get a real feel for each little area unique to our coast. Not only are there so many paths to ride on, but you can also stop at each quaint town and spend time shopping or enjoying the great flavors of the many restaurants and coffee houses that preside along 30A. 

Electric bikes make it so easy to travel around Sandestin too. Touring along Miramar Beach from the Silver Sands Outlet all the way to the Brooks Bridge makes for a great day now that there are sidewalks and bike paths the whole way. It sure does beat being in a car or in some cases riding manual bikes where the heat just gets to you after a while! Parking is a breeze too.  

You can pick up electric bikes at many locations On the Coast. We suggest you call ahead and reserve them because carriers have a limited supply! 

Cool factors: You don’t have to pedal the whole time, Cover a lot of distance, quickly, Gets you outdoors and active
