The small-town atmosphere includes eleven traditional neighborhoods, seven of which are located along the shoreline, and each with its own distinct personality and charm.

Exploring Fort Walton Beach

Downtown Fort Walton Beach
On the shores of Santa Rosa Sound, Downtown Fort Walton Beach reflects the ebb and flow of life on the water. Eclectic shops, locally-owned restaurants, and lively watering holes play on an eclectic vibe.

Several Downtown restaurants live double lives as pubs with live music on select nights. Props Brewery and Grill is a veteran-owned spot with juicy burgers and house-made drafts. If you’re into people-watching, grab a seat on the porch at Fokkers Pub. The sports bar is right next door to Burrito del Sol’s colorful Cantina, where music pours onto the street late into the night.

Fort Walton Beach Landing Park
A beautiful park located in the heart of downtown Fort Walton Beach, The Landing, as the locals call it, is the place for Friday night concerts, movies in the park, Saturday farmers markets and even holiday fireworks. Be sure to stop by to see what is going on or just for a quiet stroll along the Santa Rosa Sound.
Indian Temple Mound Museum
The Fort Walton Mound is an archaeological site located in present-day Fort Walton Beach, Florida, United States. The large platform mound was built about 850 CE by the Pensacola culture, a local form of the Mississippian culture. Because of its significance, the mound was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964. Still reduced by time, the massive mound is still 12 feet high and 223 feet wide at the base. It was an expression of a complex culture, built by a hierarchical society whose leaders planned and organized the labor of many workers for such construction. The mound served combined ceremonial, political and religious purposes. At the center of the village and its supporting agricultural lands, the mound served as the platform for the temple and residence of the chief. Successive leaders were buried in the mound and additional layers were added over time. This is one of three surviving mound complexes in the panhandle, the others being Letchworth Mounds and Lake Jackson Mounds state parks.
Emerald Coast Science Center
The Emerald Coast Science Center is hands-on science discovery center located in Fort Walton Beach, Okaloosa County, Florida. The Center was established in 1989 as the FOCUS Center, and changed its name to Emerald Coast Science Center in 2001. ECSC is a nonprofit center with a mission of inspiring and growing a scientifically engaged community.
Gulfarium Adventure Park
Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park has entertained millions since its inception in 1955. In the early 1950’s J.B. “Brandy” Siebenaler, a well-respected marine researcher and graduate of the University of Miami’s Marine Laboratory, had the vision to display marine life in a way that visitors to this area had never seen before. Brandy sold the developers of northwest Florida the idea that Fort Walton Beach needed an aquarium, a tourist attraction, and a scientific research center.

In early 1954, the Gulfarium was incorporated by fifteen scientists at the University of Miami and fifty local residents. Today, many of the stockholders at the Gulfarium are the same, or their heirs, as they were back then.

Level two inspection and its ability to provide close-up images of damage, these inspections are oftentimes referred to as real estate, home, or insurance inspections.
