Poking around on here, it looks like the Ft Walton Beach/Okahloosa area is interesting... I want something off the beaten path a bit, no high-rise condos or resort hotels, but not quite ready for a beach shack or whatever.
Found a spot at Emerald Isle condos, looks very peaceful and relaxing, right on the water. Anyone have experience or feedback on that development?
Any suggestions or tips for the area? Favorite local hangouts for a good meal (we're tired of chain restaurants)? How about somewhere where we can get a frosty adult beverage and take in some local color?
