The Vale of Paradise awaits you...

The Community - Fort Walton Beach Area in Florida
Located between Pensacola and Panama City along North Florida's glittering Gulf Coast, Fort Walton Beach offers its powdery white beaches, emerald waters, enjoyable golf courses, and much more. Fort Walton Beach boasts all the fun of the major vacation spots, minus the fuss. Home to family-friendly resorts and attractions such as parks, museums and aquariums, it's not just the calm, green waters and cool, white sand that make this northwest Florida destination a family favorite. The charming little town of Ft. Walton Beach is a favorite of families seeking not just to "get away " but to "get to " something truly wonderful. Here you'll find a quaint seaside downtown area with interesting shops and museums chock-full of fun and local history. A short drive away, there's a big treat waiting for you at the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base. (Want to see what a Purple Heart looks like? How about a jet like the one Tom Cruise flew in Top Gun?) And when the sun goes down on Ft. Walton Beach, the volume goes up. You'll have your pick of an eclectic group of restaurants as well as other exciting nightlife.

Eglin Air Force Base
Eglin Air Force Base is located in northwest Florida, comprising over 640 square miles. This is a military friendly area and also a major tourist attraction due to the white sand beaches.
