This year you decided to hang up the apron and trade it in for a family vacation to the sunny beaches of Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. We have plenty of options for anyone and everyone trying to escape the harsh beginnings of winter! Everything from full kitchens in each unit to restaurants that are serving an elaborate thanksgiving meal. No matter your personality or your family’s plans we have what you need, here on the Emerald Coast.
If cooking is a family ritual for you and you want to stay close to the beach then we’ve got you covered. Enjoy each other’s company by trading family recipes and teaching the young ones grandma’s secret apple pie recipe as you cook in a full size kitchen while gazing at the beach from the kitchen! In each unit we have a full kitchen with an oven and stove top along with a microwave, refrigerator, and freezer. The refrigerator comes with plenty of room for all of your favorite sides and the biggest turkey you can find. Light your pumpkin spice candle, turn on the Macy’s day parade and get to cooking! Or you can change it up a bit and open the wall size glass door that leads out to the balcony and listen to the roar of the ocean as it lulls you into a relaxed state.
Once the aroma of your family’s secret recipes starts to fill the air your mini vacation will begin to feel like home. Sit around the dinner table and have your normal family thanksgiving with a change of scenery that would only be in your dreams. After you’re stuffed with turkey and potato salad, head on down to the sandy shores right outside your condo and work off all of those scrumptious calories with a nice afternoon walk on the beach. Nothing beats the sand between your toes right after filling your belly with Thanksgiving dinner.
If cooking isn’t quite your thing or you really just want a break from the kitchen then head on down to AJ’s and enjoy a full on Thanksgiving feast like no other. In addition to their regular menu favorites, they will be offering a Traditional Thanksgiving Plate from 11am-4pm for $12.95 per persona. Then they will remain open for dinner service after 4PM, serving from the standard dinner menu. Live music will be provided by Jacob Mohr Band starting at 8PM upstairs along with D.J. V-Train.
Another option is the total experience of “A Grande Thanksgiving.” A Holiday meal starting at 11 AM on the Destin Harbor at the Grande Vista Bar and Grill. Located on the Grande Vista Level inside the Emerald Grande. They will be serving a traditional all inclusive Thanksgiving meal. What more could you possibly ask for? For only $24.95 per adult and $12.95 per child enjoy a holiday feast anyone would dream of.
So, if you’re here visiting us on this holiday or plan to be here for it just know that you have options and that you will be taken care of this Thanksgiving. Happy Turkey Day! Gobble Gobble!
