I'm considering going to a concert in Florida at Fort Walton Beach in late August.

Is there anything regionally unique to see/do/eat?

I knew the name but had to look her up on youtube to remember what she sang. Are you really going out of your way to see this concert? I do remember some songs and they weren't bad but I can't see going to the show. Have fun?

Does Amy Grant count as something to do in the Florida panhandle?

I've been on vacation to Ft Walton Beach(and nearby Destin) at least 15 different times growing up. I'd stay a couple of days and just chill on the beach, nobody will be there because all the kiddies are back at school. You can rent a gulf front condo for like $100-150 a day, that's nice if you got a few buddies to split the cost with.

Places to eat:
Staff's on Miracle Strip Parkway(RT 98). Old family owned place, expensive, but their stuffed flounder is to die for.
Old Bay Steamer- Corner of Rt 98 and Santa Rosa Blvd. Boiled shrimp and crab legs, best shrimp you'll get anywhere, provided you like them with the heads on.

If you decide to rent a Jet Ski, there is a place in Ft Walton beach on Rt 98 that sits right on the Choctawachee Bay. Rent from them, because you don't have to tool along for 30 minutes to get out of the harbor. That's a real problem if you rent one in Destin for 2 or 3 hours, you spend 20 minutes in a no wake zone in the harbor.

Its fun just to walk along the harbor in Destin and look at all the yatches, and if you're lucky you'll see a charter fishing boat pull in and they clean all the fish right there. Chartering out a fishing boat is really $$$$$$, I wouldn't do it unless you have at least 5 or 6 buddies to split the cost.

There is a really big outlet mall just east of Destin, but then again I'm jaded because we have really good malls here where I live.


EDIT: Pensacola is a bit of a drive from Ft Walton, but it would be worth the trip over there to see the Naval Air Museum. Really big museum with all kinds of old fighter planes of all vintages. Also, the ancient spanish fort that guards the harbor is pretty cool as well.

Our family enjoyed this many years ago:

Not Blanche though. This is a Christian-themed show and she's kind of a slut. :D

Hey, even Blanche knows a "Christian" themed show is a great place to pick up older guys on the make!
