OKaloosa Island | Fort Walton Beach, Florida
These cuties are getting married at the Holiday Inn Resort on Okaloosa Island this October! I really think Fort Walton Beach is the unsung hero of the Gulf Coast. It’s nestled between the hotspots – 30A, Destin and Pensacola – but Fort Walton’s beaches are just as pristine and, often, not as crowded or as hard to navigate through the summer traffic.
If you want to beat the summer traffic and crowds altogether, just follow this example: October through February. Why do you think we have snow birds? Because it hardly gets cold here. Sure, we have the occasional winter breeze… but we’re almost always 5-10 degrees warmer than Atlanta and that’s 6+ hours away (depending on who’s driving).
