Was given another wonderful opportunity to visit and enjoyed myself once again. The meeting for work were very long, but at least when I went back to my condo I had the best view of the beach that anyone can imagine. Even though it was cold some days and rainy I enjoyed my stay. The food was great and my co-workers were awesome. I have never laughed so much in such a long time. I still had lots of homework to do, but at least I felt relaxed finally. Did some more sightseeing, so I hope you enjoy my page. Each time I adventure out to a new place, it just makes me want to do more. So happy trailes everyone and may you make some new paths for others to follow and enjoy!!
Fort Walton was known both as Brooks Landing when John Thomas Brooks and his family settled here in 1868 and Camp Walton for the Civil War encampment by the Walton Guards. It was renamed Fort Walton when a Civil War cannon was discovered in 1932 and excavated from an Indian mound in the present downtown area on Santa Rosa Sound. In the last two decades, growth in Fort Walton Beach has slowed, and today the City looks towards innovative and exciting ways to bring the spirit of yesterday into the plans of today and tomorrow.

This was in 2004 my last visit: Gosh, what can I say about the beautiful white sand and emerald waters! Except it rained the whole damn time......lol! Still I had a great time there and met some wonderful special people!;-))) My hotel was next to the Gulfarium, so instead of waking up to rooster crowing, I woke up seashore style. Moaning Seals........LOL! Gotta to love it:-)))))
I will tell you, everyone I came in contact with was so friendly and helpful. This made for a very nice visit!
- Pros:Lots of things to do, stay, eat, and just have fun...Wow!
- Cons:Traffic was bad even in the winter months...summer yikes!
- In a nutshell:Still want to visit again!
