More Info: Walton County is one of the nation's fastest-growing counties, located along the sparkling Emerald Coast of northwest Florida. It serves the vibrant communities of South Walton, Sandestin, Destin, Panama City Beach, DeFuniak Springs, Paxton, Freeport and Choctawhatchee Bay. The county has 26 miles of coastline on the Gulf of Mexico. Six miles of this is state park land that is open to the public. State parks located along the county beaches include Deer Lake, Grayton Beach and Topsail Hill. Seaside Beach made giant splash in the architectural world when developer Robert Davis carved out a modern Victorian town with narrow streets, picket fences and homes arranged close together to encourage walking and neighborliness. It was the first of its kind, creating the model for towns across America. Seaside's "walk-to-anywhere" design is working to bring necessary shops and services to its residents and guests, including a post office and a school. Seaside, Florida's centerpeice, also contains a market, art galleries, florist, ice cream store and other small boutiques. Although many Seaside homes can be rented on a daily or weekly basis, the city also offers a motor court and B&B. North of the city is Eglin Air Force Base, the training facility for Gen. Jimmy Doolittle’s “Raiders” during World War II. A monument at Valparaiso honors them for their contributions during the war. Just outside the west gate of the base, the Air Force Armament Museum exhibits restored aircraft from World War II through the Vietnam War.
