Hi all! My boyfriend and I are planning a road-trip to New Orleans and one of our stops is Fort Walton Beach. We were wondering if anyone could give us some insight on some of the best things to do here (besides the beach). We were hoping to get your opinions on 1.) the best beaches to walk on for shelling; 2.) best place to watch a Gulf Coast sunset; 3.) some good restaurants to try in town and 4.) some good "nightlife" bars to try. Or if you think of anything else that would be fun for the day, just let us know! We try to stay budget-friendly, but we will splurge if it's worth it :) We are both in our upper-20s and just enjoy making memories with each other. We also really like scenic drives, but we don't want to go too far since we will be heading to New Orleans within a few days. Thank you all for your help and advice in advance and we look forward to hearing from you!!!
