  • An abundance of outdoor activities! Miles of public beaches along Okaloosa Island offer residents and visitors plenty of opportunities for boating, diving and snorkeling, parasailing or water skiing -- as well as lazy sunbathing and sunset strolls. Locals make good use of the Fred Hedrick Athletic Complex, which provides recreational programs, multipurpose fields for sports, a playground and picnic areas.
  • Lower cost of living! Resort-style living doesn't have to come at a high cost. Fort Walton Beach's cost of living is lower than the national average at 6.4 percent, which means residents of the area can spend less on necessities and more on waterfront property in the Cinco Bayou or Ocean City neighborhoods. With median home prices less than the national average by 9.4 percent, the dream of living the stress-free beach life is much closer to reality.
  • More rental opportunities! As a tourist destination, Fort Walton Beach is subject to more vacancies due to the many seasonal residents. With a current vacancy rate of 12.5 percent and a median rental rate that is approximately 5 percent less than the Florida average, newcomers are more likely to find rent to own homes to fit their price range. Even as real estate prices tend to be higher for homebuyers looking along Eglin Parkway or the Miracle Strip, rental house prices are notably lower than the state average.
  • Fresh seafood dining! If you've got a craving for mahi mahi, you'll love the huge selection of highly rated seafood restaurants in Fort Walton Beach. Crabs and oysters top the menus, but diners can find a dish for any appetite and budget. Enjoy a fried oyster sandwich and hush puppies at Stewby's Seafood Shanty or opt for a date night splurge on the Gulf Steamer for two at Old Bay Steamer. Satisfy that sweet tooth with a treat down at Cupcakery By the Sea.
