Fort Walton Beach-Okaloosa Island, FL Visitors Guide

Grown out of "Camp Walton", an 1861 Confederate Military Camp, Fort Walton Beach has blossomed into a serious southern travel destination in recent years. Many travelers would describe Fort Walton Beach as a fluid blend of ocean vibes and small town charisma. Between the beaches of Okaloosa Island, the historic downtown district of Miracle Strip Parkway, and incredible attractions like the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park, this versatile vacation spot offers all the comforts of home but with first class accommodations and entertainment.

While visiting Fort Walton Beach, Florida, it's easy to find one-of-a-kind tours, activities, and attractions perfect for all ages and interests. Head to Okaloosa Island and catch a bite at the famous Okaloosa Island Boardwalk, or stop by the Fort Walton Indian Temple Mound Museum and be transported through time by Native American history and artifacts. Whatever your pleasure, F-dub (as the locals call it) will deliver an unforgettable experience.
