Family Travel with Colleen Kelly - Emerald Coast, Florida
Colleen and her daughters head to the sunny Emerald Coast of Florida for a relaxing vacation along the Gulf of Mexico. They get a deluxe lesson in how to build a sandcastle from a professional, making an extraordinary three-tower castle! Their next adventure is a dolphin cruise, where the dolphins swim so close to the boat, they can practically touch them! Colleen and the girls then visit the Gulfarium, where they do touch a dolphin and even paint with her, as part of a behind-the-scenes program called Dolphin Doodle.
In addition to beautiful beaches, the Emerald Coast is known for its Native American history. The Indian Temple Mound and Museum located in Ft. Walton has one of the finest collections of artifacts and prehistoric ceramics in the Southeastern United States. Colleen also meets a local chef to learn about the fish in the area and tricks for getting kids to try new foods. She then has a fishing lesson on the Okaloosa Island Pier in Destin, known for being the luckiest fishing village. To top off the vacation, Colleen and the girls try jet skiing for the first time, taking in amazing views of the Emerald Coast area from the water. From Ft Walton to Okaloosa Island to Destin, Florida, the Emerald Coast offers fun for the whole family.
Destin, Florida: A Vacation From Our RV Vacation on the Gulf of Mexico's Emerald Coast
This is the last stop on the Great American Road Trip travel vlog. We just relax for a couple of days at the Emerald Coast, frolicking in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico, eat some fabulous seafood, and then drive all the way to Panama City. Here we wish we were traveling in a van because there are many place we would love to stop for a bite or just enjoy the surf.
From the blog:
We are reaching the home stretch, the end of our epic road trip. In this last installment, the idea is to take a vacation from our vacation and do something totally different. We are just going to relax in the white sand and warm waters of the Emerald Coast of Florida. This is located in the Florida panhandle, on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
We are splurging in one of the most expensive and coveted RV Parks in the United States, Camp Gulf, in Destin Florida. Our two nights here will be a grand total of $445 for a beachfront site. Is it worth it? You can be the judge of that but I thoroughly enjoyed waking up a stone throw away from the water. Our time here is spent as follows: beach, beer, seafood, repeat.
Well there's a little more than that, and we did certain things line eating a freshly made Krispy Kreme, which didn't make it to the video. Why it didn't? Well I had my hands full of Krispy Kreme glaze goodness and didn't want to touch my phone.
As we begin our return trip to South Florida, we cruise along, hugging the coast all the way to Panama City. I the video you get treated to a mesmerizing time lapse as we pass by all the Gulf Coast communities. Eventually we get on the interstate and after a long, long drive we make it to the 305, the local pseudonym for Miami.

COASTAL DUNE LAKES JEWELS OF FLORIDA'S EMERALD COAST
The coastal dune lakes of northwest Florida are home to many diverse species-some of them endangered such as the loggerhead sea turtle, the snowy plover, and the Choctawhatchee beach mouse. These lakes also offer locals and visitors a peaceful haven, which has led to an increase in human activity resulting in both positive and negative effects. Journey with filmmaker Elam Stoltzfus to see what makes these lakes unique and how they are being protected. The film explores what local organizations are doing to ensure that future generations can enjoy Florida's natural beauty and endangered wildlife, and also travels to New South Wales, Australia to offer insight about the rare phenomenon of coastal dune lakes around the world.

HOT BLONDE AT THE BEACH! | FORT WALTON BEACH | EMERALD COAST
I found a hot blonde at the beach! Allison and Tim take a trip to Fort Walton Beach, near Destin, Florida for a business trip and a short beach vacation in the process.
Fort Walton Beach
Fort Walton Beach is a city in southern Okaloosa County, Florida, United States. As of 2010, the population estimate for Fort Walton Beach was 19,507 recorded by the U.S. Census Bureau. It is a principal city of the Fort Walton Beach−Crestview−Destin Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Fort Walton Beach is a year-round fishing and beach resort community. Its busiest time of the year is the summer, with spring break being another busy time when thousands of people flock to the Emerald Coast.
Destin is a city located in Okaloosa County, Florida. It is a principal city of the Fort Walton Beach-Crestview-Destin, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area.
Located on Florida's Emerald Coast, Destin is known for its white beaches and emerald green waters. Originating as a small fishing village, it is now a popular tourist destination. According to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, over 80 percent of the Emerald Coast's 4.5 million visitors each year visit Destin. The city styles itself The World's Luckiest Fishing Village, and claims to have the largest fishing vessel fleet in the state of Florida.
The city is located on a peninsula separating the Gulf of Mexico from Choctawhatchee Bay. The peninsula was originally a barrier island. Hurricanes and sea level changes gradually connected it to the mainland. In the 1940s it technically became an island again with the completion of the Choctawhatchee-West Bay Canal.

Our #Journey takes us to the Gulf Coast Beaches Florida! There are so many things to do in Florida, so we decided for clear skies and beaches with the clearest water to change it up a bit. We ventured to Navarre Beach and Lido Shores, in the Keys just west of Sarasota out in the Gulf!
Navarre Beach is a hidden gem on the panhandle that is slowly becoming more popular. The beaches are snow white and the waters are clear blue! We highly recommend people visiting theses gulf coast beaches!
Next we went RV Shopping gulf coast style in Sarasota, Florida then took a trip to the Keys there to grab lunch and explore the area a bit! The place we ate at was called New Pass Bait House and Grill. Definitely a locals and boaters stop. Cheap food, local beers and amazing views!
