Brewery

“Prop's is a great place that takes a lot of inspiration from the local Air Force bases around Fort Walton. They brew their own beer ( I'm a fan of the Blonde Bomber) and their burgers are killer.”

Mini Golf
“Vintage, locally owned place! Not the commercial miniature golf. Go to Goofy Golf in Fort Walton Beach, 10 min away. Its been in business since 1958. For the last 50+ years, families and friends have enjoyed the fun and "goofy" atmosphere of our miniature golf course. Cash only, it is like $3.00 a person. Also, no shade, so go early morning, or late afternoon or night. ”
