Tourists can spend a pleasant afternoon at the boardwalk. There are several stores which unfortunately all sell the same souvenir stuff, and several restaurants that would be good for lunch. Next to the boardwalk is the Gulfarium which i a great family outing and also the long fishing pier is right therer. For a minimal charge you can walk out... More

You will enjoy a stroll along the entire length of the Boardwalk, and you won't believe how nice it is since it underwent a complete rebuild last year. You can view the fishing fleet, rent water sports equipment, listen to concert music on occasion, zip line, or enjoy food and drinks at restaurants ranging from local watering holes and oyster...

Awesome place to walk or window shopping, have a talk with life partner or see the beach. Is like all in one place. I was not hungry but I'm sure they serve very good food.

Shopping is very limited, but there are good places to eat. Our favorite there is the Black Pearl, but we've not been to all.

We were at the Boardwalk several times during our Christmas vacation. The white sand beach is unlike any we have experienced as it is powder white. We ate at Anglers while sitting outside listening to the surf and just enjoying life. There are plenty of places to grab a bite although some were closed for the season. This is a... More

The Boardwalk is a great place to visit when in Fort Walton Beach. We love Rick's Crab Trap. Floyd's Seafood, and Angler's Restaurant! They have shops with some unique items for sale, plus clothing. A GREAT children's playground, sand volleyball, and of course, the beautiful white sand of the Emerald Coast. Easy in and out to Miracle Strip Parkway, and... More

The food here is good in the past but we stopped in two stores to shop only. One staff didn't greet just put her head into her phone. Could have cared less. The other store greeted, went back to her phone and when a customer needed a shirt down she just handed the tool to the customer to reach for... More
