Life's a beach

We were at the Boardwalk several times during our Christmas vacation. The white sand beach is unlike any we have experienced as it is powder white. We ate at Anglers while... read more

Awesome place to walk or window shopping, have a talk with life partner or see the beach. Is like all in one place. I was not hungry but I'm sure they serve very good food.

Shopping is very limited, but there are good places to eat. Our favorite there is the Black Pearl, but we've not been to all.

We were at the Boardwalk several times during our Christmas vacation. The white sand beach is unlike any we have experienced as it is powder white. We ate at Anglers while sitting outside listening to the surf and just enjoying life. There are plenty of places to grab a bite although some were closed for the season. This is a... More

The Boardwalk is a great place to visit when in Fort Walton Beach. We love Rick's Crab Trap. Floyd's Seafood, and Angler's Restaurant! They have shops with some unique items for sale, plus clothing. A GREAT children's playground, sand volleyball, and of course, the beautiful white sand of the Emerald Coast. Easy in and out to Miracle Strip Parkway, and... More

The food here is good in the past but we stopped in two stores to shop only. One staff didn't greet just put her head into her phone. Could have cared less. The other store greeted, went back to her phone and when a customer needed a shirt down she just handed the tool to the customer to reach for... More

We parked by the Boardwalk, went shopping and spent time on the beach with rented beach umbrellas and chairs--it was a little windy, but wonderful.

There are not that many shops and perhaps 6 or more restaurants all of which were good but there is not a lot else there to spend a lot of time. We went up the road to the boardwalk pier in Destin and you can spend a lot more time there plus watch the charters come in with their catch... More
