  • Just Right

    "My husband and I, along with our two teenagers and our three year old, spent a wonderful Labor Day weekend here. The condo had everything we needed - a beautiful view, easy access to the gorgeous beach and swimming pools, a well stocked kitchen, and comfortable beds. It was clean and just right for us. We walked out on the pier and watched dolphins which was the first time our three year old had ever seen them so her excitement was contagious. One night there was also a very small wedding on the beach in front of our condo which was beautiful. This was a nice family environment and we will definitely be back! Thanks for everything!"

  • Relaxing and Fun

    "This was our first time visiting Okaloosa Island and we are so glad we decided to visit. The weather was beautiful and the water was a perfect temperature. The sand was soft and cool. The condo at Sea Dunes was fantastic! The view was wonderful. We saw dolphins everyday from our balcony. It is one of the cleanest and well maintained places we have ever stayed. The Kelleys are wonderful people to work with and they went our of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Hands down - one of our best family vacations to get away and just relax. We enjoyed the beach each day: swimming, kayaking, collecting shells, sand volleyball, catching sea slugs and sea snails, building sand forts and ghost crab hunting at night. Sunrises and sunsets were also beautiful. The local restaurants are delicious. Highly recommend The Crab Trap, Dewey Destin's, La Famiglia Ristorante Italian and Pizza (authentic). Boshamps Oyster House has a delicious appetizer called True Alabama Feta Cheese Dip! We are already discussing our next trip to Okaloosa and plan to rent the Kelleys place again. Thank you for sharing your "piece of paradise" with our family."

  • St. George Island and the Island Dream is the perfect combination.

    "This was absolutely the best vacation ever. St. George Island was recommended by a family member and they were right. Island Dream was the best bargain on the island. Literally steps to the beach. When we weren't on the beach, we were on the screened-in porch looking at the Gulf of Mexico. Everything we could ask for was furnished. All we had to do is show up and enjoy. And enjoy we did !!! The owners were so gracious and charming. The perfect vacation combination. We will return to St. George Island and we will stay at the Island Dream next year."

Florida Main North West Travel Tips

Northwest Florida, aka the Florida Panhandle, is known for its stellar white sand beaches and glowing blue-green waters. The beaches of northwest Florida provide the area's most popular attractions for visitors. Surrounding the surf and sand are a variety of parks, restaurants and shops. Within this region is the Emerald Coast that runs from Pensacola to Port St. Joe, and the Forgotten Coast that runs from Mexico Beach to St. Marks.

Things to Do in Northwest Florida

National Museum of Naval Aviation: Anyone interested in space travel is sure to enjoy the rich history found here. With more than 140 restored aircraft from the Navy, Coast Guard Aviation and Marine Corps, this space offers plenty to explore. Watch a live Blue Angels flight demonstration, experience flight and motion-based simulators and learn about the interior of a cockpit.

Gulf World Marine Park: Tons of family fun can be had at Gulf World Marine Park. With the park's dolphin, scuba, sea lion and tropical bird shows, visitors can see these local animals up close and personal performing entertaining and amazing tricks and feats. As you stroll though, don’t miss Tropical Gardens, where you can pet a live string ray and visit the exhibits of otters, iguanas, alligators and penguins.

Panhandle Butterfly House: Along U.S. Highway 98 you’ll find the Navarre Visitor Center, and at the foot of the beach bridge is an interactive butterfly garden that’s home to migrating butterflies and a nursery housing local butterfly species. The facility is operated by volunteers, and visitors can take a class to learn about butterfly gardening, ecosystem management and habitat conservation. Step inside and witness dozens of types of butterflies flying around. These colorful, winged creations are certainly a sight to see.

Mission San Luis: This exciting northwestern Florida attraction is a popular living history park. More than 60 acres rest on a quiet oasis away from city living. As you walk through the park you’ll feel as though you’ve gone back in time. Examine the exhibit gallery and museum in the visitor center, which houses artifacts both excavated and from private collections. The theater produces live entertainment and a classroom offers workshops and special events. If you visit on Sunday, take an Archeology Tour to learn how the site’s been excavated and how artifacts are preserved.
