While Easter is not traditionally considered a traveling holiday, we at The Breakers of Fort Walton Beach think it’s the perfect time to check out the sights and sounds of Fort Walton Beach and the surrounding towns. Offering mild temperatures, breathtaking views, and all of the same Easter activities you take part in at home, your holiday getaway to Florida is guaranteed to be one you will never forget. And following this guide to Easter in Florida in Fort Walton Beach is the best way to make sure you don’t miss out on a single moment of fun during your stay!
Brunch with the Easter Bunny
Families with young children know the importance of the Easter Bunny, and because we have kids too, we get it! Fortunately, the opportunities to enjoy the company of the furry hero of the holiday are plentiful and include a brunch at one of our favorite restaurants, Brotula’s Seafood House & Steamer in Destin. You can make reservations by calling 850-460-8900; this is a treat you won’t want to miss!
Easter in Florida Feasts
Not everyone will be traveling with children on the Easter holiday, but everyone DOES want to eat, and options for a Florida Easter feast sans-children are ample. Prepare your own in your fully equipped kitchen with food supplies purchased at the Winn Dixie nearest to the condos and spend the day relaxing with the windows open and the ocean breezes blowing through your hair. If cooking and clean-up doesn’t fit with your idea of the perfect Florida Easter vacation, why not consider an Easter lunch cruise? Sunquest Cruises offers a two-course, two-hour lunch cruise. Leaving from the Baytowne Marina, participants can choose between chicken, filet mignon, salmon, shrimp, or a vegetable pasta. Adult Easter Baskets include a bottle of Prosecco and, of course, a chocolate Easter Bunny; just because you’re grown doesn’t mean you don’t need the sweet stuff!
And All Other Easter Activities
From the annual City of Niceville Egg Hunt held at the Recreation Complex to sunrise services held at a variety of churches throughout the region, there’s always something going on that will keep you in the holiday spirit. Add in an afternoon spent frolicking on white sand beaches, a visit to the Emerald Coast Science Center, and sunsets viewed from the balcony of your condo and this trip promises to stand out from all the rest!
Get in Some Quality Holiday Park Time
If you’re the type of holiday traveler that truly can’t get enough of time in the fresh air, soaking up an incredible view, time at Liza Jackson Park will be well spent and deserved this Easter holiday. Conveniently accessed off of Miracle Strip Parkway, the Liza Jackson Park SW enjoys plenty of parking space so if you’re arriving with a large group of family and friends, you won’t have to stress about making the most of your time here. Once you’ve parked and gathered up your crew, the scenic beauty that awaits is truly appealing. Liza Jackson Park is home to over 1,000 feet of shoreline where you can settle in and watch the waves roll at your own leisurely pace. If you’re here with little ones who have some excess energy to burn, make the most of the play structures that provide endless entertainment. An Easter picnic lunch can easily be enjoyed at the pavilion or the many picnic tables for a more open-air experience. If you happen to be equipped with a boat, this park provides for seamless boat launch access as well as a fishing pier when you can’t wait to see what you can reel in!
Head Over to Destin and Enjoy the View
Of course, for some Easter travelers, a trip this way wouldn’t be complete without time spent in the midst of others in one of the area’s most bustling destinations. If this is the case, make sure to make time on the holiday itinerary for a journey to the Destin Harbor Boardwalk! This exciting and vibrant area is popular amongst visitors looking for an eye-catching place to stroll along and watch the boats go by or make the most of a people-watching moment too! The Destin Harbor Boardwalk is home to a variety of shops and restaurants that are worth checking out whether you’re curbing a craving or needing to find the ideal souvenir for a loved one back home. The Destin Harbor Boardwalk is also a central location for many local companies that offer on-the-water sightseeing, fishing, or dolphin spotting tours to depart. Even if you don’t have a reservation booked, you can always find something to fit your preference right on the boardwalk if you feel inspired to let your adventurous streak continue! Those who are in town over the holiday with a loved one and are looking to up the romance factor will want to find time to enjoy one of the many sunset cruises that leave from this area and is sure to please.
