Fort Walton Beach Condos
For sun and fun during vacations, people throughout the country turn to the gulf coast shores of Florida's panhandle region. Fort Walton Beach, FL, is located to the south of the Cinco Bayou. This is an offshoot of the much larger Choctawhatchee Bay, the body of water that defines the Destin-Fort Walton Beach area — along with beaches and tourist attractions, of course. The town also completely surrounds Cinco Bayou — the municipality of Cinco Bayou, that is — and shares borders with Ocean City, Mary Esther, Wright and the USAF facility at Hurlburt Field. It's separated from the open waters of the gulf by picturesque and resort-laden Okaloosa Island.
Condo living in Fort Walton Beach
Most visitors coming from the west take the coastal highways in from Pensacola, but some come down I-10. It's about a half hour from the interstate. Some fly in — the airport is just a few minutes outside of the town limits.
No matter how they get here, most people are looking for the same thing: relaxation. The area around the bay has been a center for vacation homes and tourism for many decades, with a wide selection of condos and resorts to prove its paradisiacal pedigree. There's something for every lifestyle — as long as that lifestyle is moderately laid back. Residents and visitors alike enjoy family fun in the theme parks and museums, boating on the bay or walks through the barrier island preserves. There's also plenty of excellent cuisine — in fact, nearby Destin is a well-known destination for seafood lovers.
Fort Walton Beach is a great place for fishing, tourism, history and connection to nature. For those who live here permanently, it's a relatively quiet beachside community for most of the year. For those who visit, it's a resort playground in a beautiful natural setting. There's a lot to consider when buying a condo or house here, depending on your requirements and your plans for your purchase.
