Day 1: Surfing
Enjoy some of Florida’s best surfing in Fort Walton Beach! Pick up a board and gear (or even take lessons) from local outfitters like Fluid Surf Shop or Dog House Surf Shop, then hit up famously good surfing spots like Dead Man’s near Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and Okaloosa Island Pier, or outside of the Blue Horizon Motel near Brooks Bridge.
Day 2: Charter Fishing
There are a ton of local fishing charters that can take you fishing with just about any method you can think of, from inshore and deep-sea fishing to bowfishing and flounder gigging. Start with One Shot Charters, Panhandle Fishing Charters, or Rusty Anchor Charters.

Downtown FWB is home to just about every type of bar imaginable, for all kinds of Fort Walton nightlife revelry. Try Fokker’s Pub for a sports bar atmosphere and great pub fare, including German and American food and hand tossed pizzas. Salty Duck, one of the best bars in Fort Walton Beach, has games and tons of craft beer. And if you like to get your dance on to live country music, The Block is the place for you.

Pelican Adventures offers tandem flights that put you well above the chalk-white sands and emerald waves, taking in the landscape from a new perspective.
Of course, if you and your traveling crew are more into angling, Pelican Adventures can help out there as well.

Once you reel in that amazing catch, you’ll likely find yourself wanting to linger longer than originally planned.
Hike Henderson Beach Nature Trail
