Spoil yourself with a special Memorial Day getaway to Fort Walton Beach. 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 to start each day. With water temperatures 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 which you choose, there are plenty of activities to create a trip full of memories that are unique to you and your family. Make sure to grab a mask on your way out to any indoor activities or activities enjoyed with others not in your group.
Family members of all ages 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 try their hand at a new water sport or adventure like paddleboarding or snorkeling. You might also decide to stay dry and spread out on the sand for some sunbathing, read a book while the kids of the group build sandcastles, or plant a beach chair in the shallow water where you can stay cool without getting too wet.
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 your own relaxation. Many spas in the area offer a full menu of various types of massage, 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 make a package of relaxation unique to you.
- Fishing is an activity for all ages and ability levels. No matter what time of year, there’s a great fishing trip awaiting you and your family in Fort Walton Beach. Stay close to shore with inshore and nearshore fishing, explore the bayous, flats, and inlets with a fly fishing excursion, or brave the waves of the Gulf of Mexico for a deep sea trip full of memories to last a lifetime. Keep in mind the captain may have age minimums for deep sea excursions for safety reasons. If you view fishing as a solitary or small group activity, rent some gear and head down to the beach for surf fishing and see what’s biting close to shore.
Emerald Coast Mirror Maze
Bring out the kid in everyone with some fun and games. No matter what the weather is outside, bring everyone inside to the air conditioning and enjoy plenty of indoor fun at Emerald Coast Mirror Maze. Get lost in the 2,300-square-foot maze that will keep you turning circles and guessing to find your way out. Take turns as team captain when you plan a round of Pirate’s Quest laser tag in the 1,800-square-foot arena or test your secret agent skills as you twist and turn to move stealthily through the laser maze. Get through undetected for a higher score but suffer a penalty at the end of the round for each laser you hit.
Fort Walton Beach Parasail
Take the adventure above the waves. 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 and USCG-approved parasailing boat for the ride of a lifetime. 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 again and landing safely on the deck. Book a camera and GoPro package and get a record of your trip. The harness can take up to three riders at a time, so you can go solo or brave the skies with two others.
