Top things to Do at the Boardwalk


There are several restaurants to check out at the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island in Fort Walton Beach, FL. Be sure to stop by Rockin Tacos and The Crab Trap. These tacos are huge and really amazing! They were actually one of our very first eatery experiences when we arrived in Florida and they did not disappoint!


There are several awesome shops at the Boardwalk. Check out Surfside Outfitters, Kitty Hawk Kites, and Islanders Coastal Outfitters. These are great places to buy any last minute apparel or souvenirs before you head home!

Hang out at the Beach

If you have a little more time, head down to the beach. Take a walk on the water and relax for a bit the the most gorgeous beaches Florida has to offer.

The Pier

Head over to the pier! If you’re not planning to fish, you can walk the pier for only $2 per person (totally worth it!) You can see all kinds of marine life from the pier including sharks and dolphins.
