Sports Journey in Fort Walton Beach

Taking time to enjoy a trip to Fort Walton Beach is always exciting. For those who love journeying with a focus on sports fun, this destination is one that promises to check every box on the list. The following are just a few of the many Fort Walton Beach activities you can enjoy during a stay. Whether you’re one for running, skating, or making the most of time on the waves, Fort Walton Beach has something exciting waiting for you to enjoy! 

Watersports and Other Fort Walton Beach Activities

Any time you set your sights on a trip to Fort Walton Beach in the name of vacation, you’re in for a treat when it comes to watersports. Those with a passion for time on the waves will find there is no shortage of options for fun when it comes to pairing time in the water and adrenaline-pumping fun as well. Fortunately, you don’t have to bring all of your own watersport gear when you come to Fort Walton Beach this summer for a sports-focused journey. Instead, head over to Power Up Watersports and rent what you need to turn those adventurous plans into a reality. Power Up Watersports is located at 1201 B Miracle Strip Parkway SE in Fort Walton Beach and is open to the public daily between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. Here, you can easily rent everything from jet skis to pontoon boats that range from 20 to 24 feet in length. Jet skis are great options when you can’t wait to explore the waters directly around Fort Walton Beach at your own pace, or you’re considering exploring Destin Harbor and Crab Island as well. If you’re the type of traveler that always looks to maximize the sporting fun, consider booking a jet ski dolphin tour with the team at Power Up Watersports and combine nature appreciation with your fun on the water. 

Check Out the Fort Walton Beach Skate Park

If your travel plans bring you to Fort Walton Beach this summer and your idea of a great day is one spent rolling through jumps and putting your balance skills to the test, making time for a day at the Fort Walton Beach Skate Park is sure to inspire! This inviting stop is located at 126 Jet Drive NW and is open daily from 5:00 am until 10:00 pm. The Fort Walton Beach Skate Park is the perfect place for experienced skaters to work on honing their techniques while those who are new to the sport will enjoy the myriad of options for testing out tricks for the first time. The park hosts a collection of ramps and rails to try out as well as flat surfaces for practice or a little friendly competition. Either way, it’s worth checking out if skating through a vacation is exactly your style. 

Fort Sk8 Family Fun Center

When nostalgic sports are more your thing, spending time at the Fort Sk8 Family Fun Center is a must! This local roller rink and arcade offers guests a chance to access their rolling skating skills once more all while pairing it with pizza and video games. The Fort Sk8 Family Fun Center is located at 202 Racetrack Road NW and is open Thursdays from 3:00 pm until 8:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays until 10:00 pm, and Sundays until 6:00 pm. The facility hosts roller derby and glow skating events as well so it’s worth keeping your eye on the calendar to see what’s coming up when you’re in town. This is a fun for the entire family stop when you’re traveling with a crew that loves to roll together. 

Explore Area Running Trails

While many travelers head to Fort Walton Beach to enjoy time on the sand kicking back in style, those with a love for lacing up the running shoes and hitting the trails no matter where they roam will find this locale is filled with great pathways to explore. Ferry Park is a good place to start and is located at 240 Hughes Street NE. The park hosts a disco golf course as well as a tennis court, but for runners, the trails here prove both scenic and convenient.
