What Bert Has To Say About Crestview-Fort Walton Beach-Destin Metro Area

Fort Walton Beach is located at the head of the Choctawhatchee Bay. The city itself is primarily a tourist destination popular especially with residents of other parts of the South, with a long, built-up strip of beachside high-rise hotels. The beaches and ocean waters are particularly attractive and good places for fishing and other water activities, but the physical infrastructure and land assets aren’t the best in the state. The resort community of Destin, on the barrier island sheltering the bay, has become the more up-and-coming tourist magnet.
