A great little marine park in the area. Inexpensive and well worth the visit.

Big K

No visit to Florida would be complete without a day at the water park.


You have to eat and hopefully this is a fun vacation. Fudpuckers will fill your belly and at the same time add a dose of fun. A great local restaurant you won’t want to miss.

Charlie’s Burger Bar

Looking for a different choice of burger? This place is definitely worth checking out. All types of meat to choose from and a challenge to find. Charlie’s is hidden inside of Crab Island Cantina, not a place you would look for a burger bar-) If you like burgers, don’t miss checking out this place!

Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone

MUST DO- Tree Top Challenge

Lots of other things to do at the park but the Tree Top Challenge is a must do. Plan on a day

and The Boardwalk Okaloosa Island

Want to make a day of it with plenty things to do, all in walking distance?

Spend the day at Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone and The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. They are directly across the road from each other. Plenty activities, plenty restaurants and plenty of our beautiful beach. A great place to have a beach day with plenty other things to do, all in walking distance.

Beach Volleyball

Are you a beach volleyball fan? Beach volleyball definitely tops the list of things to do in Destin Florida (maybe because I enjoy it so much-). There are many places to play but the most consistent place to find players is The Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island. Plenty permanent nets set up and maintained. The courts directly behind Al’s Beach Club is where you will find the regulars. Al’s is a good place to have a bite to eat and watch the sunset over the courts-)

Check out for info on one of the largest four person tournaments in the Nation. If you are a player and have not played Fuds, you are not a player-)
