Best area to stay., Ft. Walton? Seaside?Destin?

The husband and I wanted to visit the Destin area for our 1st anniversary in September. We would like to stay somewhere with an ocean view and with a kitchenette of some sort. Where is the best area of town with nightlife, beautiful beaches, and can stay for around $150 a night.. after all, it's low season, right? Thanks!

I don't know much about Seaside. Destin has lots to do, but is more commercialized. Also, it's still quite spread out so you will have to do some driving. Sandestin has quite a bit to offer within walking distance, but it's pretty expensive compared to other areas. Fort Walton Beach is pretty quiet. You will get more for your money, but you won't have the nightlife you desire. You'd have to drive into Destin - about 10 minutes.

I think you'll find something in your price range, but you'll have fees and tax on top of that. Check VRBO or call a local management company to give them your criteria and budget to see what they come up with.
