Destin and Fort Walton Beach Florida are famous vacation destinations and have grown rapidly over the last 50 years! Affectionately called the “Emerald Coast” – this region of Northwest Florida has become one of the most popular locations for vacations, destination weddings, family reunions, business conventions, spring break trips and large scale events. The nickname, ‘Emerald Coast’ was chosen for the gorgeous emerald-green waters aligning our beautiful snow-white sandy beaches!
The initial inhabitants to the Destin/ Fort Walton Beach area were Native Americans dated back to seventh century A.D. Although there are discovered artifacts dating back centuries, Destin and Fort Walton Beach did not become municipalities until less than a century back!
The area is, and has always been appealing due to the illustrious fishing industry and beautiful seascape.
