Hi! My name is Lauren, your vacation experience host of Salty Escapes. Born and raised on the glamourous beaches of Northwest Florida, it's safe to say that salt water runs through my veins. Living in a coastal paradise such as Destin, has become a lifestyle that I truly have embraced and find great joy in sharing my passion with travelers from all over the world.

As an avid traveler and beach lover myself, the Emerald Coast experience is an easy sell. I take great pride in delivering an incredible experience from beginning to end as I embrace this exciting journey of entrepreneurship. As one could probably imagine, it would be crazy to think of moving away from paradise. I knew there was no other place I could call home and this was it.

After high school I later graduated from the University of West Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Hospitality, Recreation and Resort Management. (surprise, surprise!) From there I spent most of my career working in various positions at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort exploring my deep rooted love for hospitality. These years were full of learning experiences and growth both professionally and personally. I was eager to learn each and every aspect of the resort world. After 13+ years, I knew it was time to spread my wings and take the leap of faith of pursuing my dreams of business ownership.

Fast forward, Salty Escapes LLC was formed. By my side through this wild journey are my two adventure loving boys (Landon 13 & Luke 6) and... the newest addition to our Salty Crew, Dozer. The guest loving, stubborn English Bulldog that happens to share the same love for our visitors as I do is becoming quite the local celebrity around town. You may likely find us strolling the harbor or hopping aboard our paddle boards for some much needed salt water therapy. It is an honor to have the opportunity to host such wonderful guests which later end up becoming dear friends. Hope to

SEA you soon!

Lauren & the Salty Crew
