FORT WALTON BEACH
Discover the “No. 1 Beach in America” at Fort Walton Beach, FL.Although it is sometimes upstaged by its more famous neighbor to the south, Miami Beach, Fort Walton Beach was recently named the “No. 1 Beach in America” by readers of USA Today.
Fort Walton Beach is part of Florida’s Emerald Coast, along the Gulf of Mexico in the Florida panhandle. The weather is warm nearly all year, and the sugar-sand beaches go for miles. The area is extremely popular with young spring breakers as well as families with children.
Fort Walton Beach was originally established as a military outpost, and even today the military makes up a significant portion of the population. Nonetheless, the city feels much more like a seaside resort than a military base. Beyond the beaches, there are endless amusements including such “old Florida” traditions as alligator shows and nature hikes.
