Is Fort Walton Beach, FL your next home destination?
November 5, 2018 | Jacqui Luberto
Fort Walton Beach is a great community that's situated between Eglin and Hurlburt AFBs.  This town has easy access to some of the best beaches on the Emerald Coast while still being more financially feasible than the more expensive and modern city of Destin.  Fortunately, it's only about a 20 minute drive if you want to pop in to Destin for its shopping or some of its more touristy attractions.  This makes Fort Walton Beach one of the best value places for its money.  With a wide variety of stores, restaurants and ease of travel time, Fort Walton Beach may make your perfect next home destination.
