Spoil yourself with a special getaway to Fort Walton Beach this Memorial Day. Book a trip full of fun and excitement or rest and relaxation or create a balanced mixture that’s sure to keep everyone happy and excited every day. Water temperatures are in the mid to high 70s and air temperatures in the mid to high 80s this time of year, you’ll want to plan as much time outdoors, with a sprinkle of indoor activities for an unexpected rainy day or just to get out of the sun for a while. No matter what you choose, there are plenty of activities to create a trip full of memories that are unique to you and your loved ones during the Fort Walton Beach Memorial Day weekend.
No matter how much time is spent, everyone will enjoy hanging out on the beach. Warm water and air temperatures will lure some into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico to splash in the waves, or to try their hand at a new water sport or adventures like paddle boarding or snorkeling. You might also decide to stay dry and spread out on the sand for some sunbathing or read a book while the kids build sandcastles or plant a beach chair in the shallow water where you can enjoy the water without getting too wet.
Fort Walton Beach Parasail
Take the adventure and sightseeing above the waves on your Memorial Day adventure. Parasailing is a fun and exhilarating way to see the sights of Fort Walton Beach and the Emerald Coast from a bird’s eye view. Strap into the harness and take off from the deck of the specially designed, USCG-approved parasailing boat for an unforgettable ride. You can choose to stay dry your entire flight or wear your swim gear and take a little dip in Choctawhatchee Bay before soaring up high and landing safely on the deck. Book a camera and GoPro package and get a record of your trip from your view. The harness can take up to three riders at a time, so you can go solo or brave the skies with two others.
Enjoy an activity that anyone can do this Memorial Day. No matter what time of year, there’s a great fishing trip waiting in Fort Walton Beach. Stay close to shore with inshore and nearshore fishing, explore the bayous, flats, and inlets on a fly-fishing excursion, or brave the waves of the Gulf of Mexico for a deep-sea trip for an exhilarating experience. Keep in mind the captain may have age minimums for deep-sea excursions for safety reasons. If you’d rather skip the large group of a charter, you can rent some gear and head down to the beach for surf fishing and see what’s biting close to shore.
Spend some time indoors and shed the worries and stress of daily life back home. When you vacation in Fort Walton Beach this Memorial Day, make sure to book a day at the spa where all you have to worry about is relaxation. Many spas in the area offer a full menu of various types of massages, facials, body wraps or scrubs, mani/pedi services, and more. When you book your treatments make sure to ask if there’s anything extra special for Memorial Day and build a package of personal relaxation.
