Its always sad to leave a vacation at the end of the week. We didn't really worry about how the ride down would go, we knew we would be tired but we figured it was the best solution for little miss, the ride home on the other hand scared the living heck out of me. There was no real way to drive overnight this time around. We decided to wake up at 5:00 and head out as early as we could. ...
... was absolutely mesmerized. She spent the whole rest of the cruise pointing to dolphins and birds as she saw them, giggling and smiling, dancing and waving to everyone else on board. Once we got back to the harbor we had two different groups of people tell us she was the hit of the trip (which of course made my heart swell with pride).
I would highly recommend sea blaster for dolphin cruises, they make it so much fun ...
... and shrimp, just like me!
After the beach we decided to go back to Pompano Joes again. We just loved the atmosphere, the view, and the food. And definitely cant beat that its only a 5 minute walk from where we were staying, straight down the boardwalk!
After dinner we enjoyed another walk on the beach and some more delicious ice cream!
Cant believe tomorrow is our last full day :(. This trip has gone by way to ...

Today called for storms in the afternoon so we decided to spend the morning at the beach before the rain moved in, the sun went behind the clouds and the water got choppy! Another delightful morning of sand castle building, tide pool splashing, and chasing little miss down the beach while she waved to and smiled at every single person she passed. It was so cute to see her wave as fast and ...
... a few shops and got little miss a few new things before heading over to where the directory showed the restaurant to be. Sadly when we got there it had closed down. :( We called the number on the gift card and it had been disconnected. Since the place we were staying was close we decided to head back and walk to the restaurant that was next door, Pompano Joes. We had read during planning this trip that it was one of the best restaurants ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Ft. Walton Beachfront Fort Walton Beach
We stayed 7 nights Sept. 19 2003. Oceanview is the only way! Very clean rooms and overall well kept. The staff is freindly and helpfull. Great pool and wonderful beach. The swizzle stick is handy for bar time, daily specials..
Enjoyed my stay!
I stayed here Veterans Day Weekend, 2002. Originally booked an inland room but was treated to a free upgrade to a beautiful ocean front room upon arrival. Rooms were clean and well kept - decorated in pleasant beachy pastels. Staff was very attentive and helpful. There's a free breakfast in the art deco lobby every morning which is simple but adequate. Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and area attractions. The Emerald Coast is Florida's best kept secret. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!
Stayed at this hotel last August (Aug 2002) for my 4 year old daughter's first trip to the beach. At $140 a night I expected much more! The elevator was very hot and stuffy. The desk staff was not exactly up to speed. There was only 1 washer and dryer for the entire hotel adn they were almost blanketed in sand. I only used teh dryer to get the worst of the damp out of our swimsuits before the trek home.
Wonderful view, great deal
Our family stayed here over spring break in April 2003. After a mix-up over our arrival date, the manager gave us a gulf-front room that was fantastic! Easy walk out to the most beautiful beach! Breakfast was basic but plentiful, and the only two negatives were that we were directly above the lounge, and it got a bit noisy a couple of nights, and the staff was a bit slow to take care of a sanitation issue in the pool. Overall a wonderful stay. If you go make sure you get an upper floor away from the lounge, especially on the weekend.
We traveled for the first time to Florida and the beach, it was the first vacation in 10 years for our family. We had requested a nonsmoking room and was told when we got there that there were no nonsmoking rooms and we would have to stay there. When we got back to our room, the maintenance guy was spraying Febreze all around, nice gesture, but now the room smelled like smokey Febreze. There was mold on the plastic curtain on our window, and the laundry room was very dirty not to mention the fact that there was only one washer/dryer for 6 floors of rooms. The one thing I can say about this experience, is that the bed was comfortable.
We stayed here the week of June 22,03. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our oceanfront room was great. Enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning. Nice pool and the hotel employees where very nice. Would definitly stay here again.
The hotel is clean and bright but I got gyped by the hotel and Orbitz. For $140 a night I had thought I was booking an oceanfront view but was given a room overlooking parking lot. They were not very helpfull in trying to rectify the situation. My contact with the ocean was limited.
My husband, son, infant son and I stayed here last summer for a week. This is a very nice hotel. It is kept very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Finally a mid-priced beachfront hotel with some style. This place looks awesome! The decor is right out of a hip George Jetson movie, funky colors, fun look and beautiful beaches. We loved the friendly staff, made us feel so welcome the week were there. Why can't other hotels get this? Just be friendly and nice to everyone and they will love you.
Done in a very 1950's art deco, think the Rat Pack, style with bright pastel colors everywhere, the Best Western in Fort Walton Beach is a hip place to stay. Great views of the ocean are available, and man is that water pretty... Emerald green and sugar white sand beaches that you thought were only in post cards.
