Boats by the east pass bridge....
Boats by the east pass bridge. This occurs friday evening, saturday and sunday during the tourist seasons. The boats are both locals and tourist. The water is shallow and warm. The people anchor their boats and enjoy the water and sun and party. There are beer and food boats which travel around the location.
It is free to watch but you must have a boat to participant and that can be expensive, either renting or owning.
Checking the beach and seeing...
Checking the beach and seeing the ships in the distance. Here is a sailboat on the gulf. Unfortunately we had a problem with sea weed this year. That is the brown on the beach. We do not have large seashell here, only small ones and they are scattered here and there. You have to look very close to see them.
It is free.
Rent A Camping Cabin Beside The Gulf
The beaches around Fort Walton Beach are among the most beautiful in the USA. This beauty reflects in pretty high prices for motel and hotel rooms on or near the beach. I've discovered that the camping cabins at Grayton Beach State Park are an economical alternative. They are very comfortable, within a walk to the beach, and near Seaside and many other pricey panhandle beachfront paradises.
