You can take the same directions as Baked Again, but when you get to Crestview, hop back on I-10 and go east to the 331 exit and take 331 the rest of the way to 30A... Probably still faster than taking 331 the whole way from Montgomery to the area.
I don't know what baked again is, but they just finished making 331 a four-lane road from I-10 to Hwy 98. It's fantastic now.
There's no way I'd go through Destin if I could avoid it.
Kilroy - Baked Again was a traveller who used to frequent this forum quite regularly and introduced us to his "shortcut" to get from I65 to Destin... Directions are located in the Top Questions about Destin area.
