On Wednesday I had the opportunity to meet Bart Coleman. Bart owns and operates Banana Bart’s on the Harbor in Destin.
As part of our “Experience” series with ResortQuest, I get the chance to film and meet some amazing people in our area. Bart is one of them.
Wednesday was my second time ever being inside his shop.
Banana Bart’s is an eclectic shop inside a 1930’s home that was, according to Bart, the first vacation home in Destin.
“Everybody else here was basically a fisherman or a turpentine farmer.”
You can’t miss the brightly painted yellow buildings, and going on 35 years in business, Bart and his wife have no plans on slowing down anytime soon!
In this short 3 minute video, Bart talks a bit about his shop and how Destin was all those years ago when he first opened.
This is the last piece of Old Destin as far as I’m concerned.
