    Ahoy there, vacationeers! We be making for Fort Walton Beach

    This gentle Floridian city is so laid-back we're surprised it hasn't dozed off and slipped into the sea. A Fort Walton Beach vacation rental is about sunning yourself on the white sand beaches, and maybe soaking up a bit of history and culture while you're at it. Home to a mix of fun-loving locals and sun-loving seasonal travelers, Fort Walton Beach is the sort of place that doesn't take itself too seriously. Want to see what we mean? Just rock up for their annual pirate festival and you'll soon get the idea.

    They didn't call it Fort Walton Swamp, did they?

    With a Fort Walton Beach vacation rental, the clue's in the name. Think pristine white sands and warm, green seas, and you're kind of getting the idea. And if you're not the sort to bask on the sand all day working on your suntan, then how about getting those legs moving with a relaxing game of golf. Nothing too energetic—you're on vacation, after all. Among the quirkier aspects of Fort Walton Beach is its annual "Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival," when locals and visitors alike get geared up like Jack Sparrow and hold torchlight parades in celebration of a famous local buccaneer.

    Can't turn back the hands of time? You can round here

    It might not look like it now, but Fort Walton Beach has old stuff stretching right back to prehistory, and you can find most of it at the Heritage Park & Cultural Center. There are exhibits covering everything from the earliest human activity at Fort Walton Beach, right through to Native American and colonial museums, and Civil War collections. And if you're more about the here and now, check out the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park. This local marine park is one of Fort Walton Beach's most popular attractions, with the dolphin shows topping the list of crowd-pleasers.

    Birdwatchers can spot that rare migratory avian, the snowbird

    When it comes to the Florida climate, you know the deal. A Fort Walton Beach vacation rental will give you the sort of weather that other states can only dream about. Summers are hot and humid, with occasional rain storms to clear the air out. Come fall, eagle-eyed vacationers might just catch that most Floridian of phenomena, the annual snowbird migration. Also, winters in this part of the world are so mild that people from all over the U.S. descend in droves every winter to warm their bones, well away from the white stuff falling further north.

    Every day's a holiday, when you're in Fort Walton Beach

    You don't see white sand beaches like these every day—well, unless you're on a Fort Walton Beach vacation rental, in which case that's exactly what happens. The city's set on Florida's famous Gulf Coast, and these gorgeous emerald-colored waters are famous for their rich marine life. And in fact, that's why many travelers make for Fort Walton Beach in the first place, since the deep-sea fishing round here is second to none. Just off the shore is Okaloosa Island, a long barrier island covered in fancy vacation rentals. With any luck, you might even be in one of them.
