Fort Walton Beach is a natural paradise which features great swimming, terrific fishing and beautiful beaches with their famous crunchy white sand. Located on the Gulf of Mexico between Destin to the east and Pensacola to the west, it is also adjacent to the Eglin Air Force Base, a facility which includes huge stretches of forest preserves within its more than 700 square miles.
The history of the Fort Walton Beach area goes back about as far as any place in North America. The city-owned Indian Temple Mound Museum includes “exhibits depicting 12,000 years of Native American occupation. Over 1,000 artifacts of stone, bone, clay and shell are here, as well as one of the finest collections of prehistoric ceramics in the Southeastern United States. Exhibits also include artifacts from the European Explorers, local pirates, and early settlers.”
Fort Walton Beach includes a wide diversity of homes. SootMaster experts have been active in the area for many years and have done fireplace and chimney cleaning and repairs for all types of properties. And, of course, when each job is done, we are likely to stop by the beautiful beach for which the city is known.
