When we say "great outdoors," we mean great.
Good Morning America named this area one of the "Top 10 Most Beautiful Places in America," but there's more to do in Destin, Ft. Walton Beach and Okaloosa Island than check out the scenery. Whether you want to golf, fish, go boating, enjoy water sports, bird watch in the park with other ecotourists, go geocaching, or just build a sand castle with the kids, you'll find what you're looking for here.
Plan on spending most of your time here all wet? Extreme fun awaits on the Emerald Coast. Jet Skiing, parasailing, kiteboarding, surfing, waterskiing – you can do it all here. Don’t leave without spending a few days at Crab Island, a favorite spot among locals.
