We always try to stay in Ft. Walton Beach, because we can usually get a lower price on the same type of condo. A couple years ago we saved500 a week versus the Destin condo prices.
We also like the fact the the traffic on the main road is much lower than in Destin. Additionally, the beaches seemed somewhat less crowded than in Destin.
Destin has the advantage in the closeness & quantity of places to shop and eat though. But if you don't mind a 10 minute drive to get to somewhere you want to visit in Destin, then try Ft. Walton Beach.
