Beer, Irish wakes, carbombs, steaks, Shepard’s pie! It’s great place to start the night out if that’s your thing, then walk across the street to the harbor. They also have a secret Sunday brunch that is out of this world. Family friendly.

These are truly amazing one of a kind. These aren’t regular donuts. They’re more like a fried croissant with donut toppings. I have never regretted waiting 30 mins in line. They have vegan, gluten free and keto options! Their pineapple, mint pressed juice is pretty insane too.

I am not a wing person! I’ve traveled the country and the ONLY wings I like are Buffalos Reef. This is one of the oldest restaurants in fwb. You can walk from my house as it is across from uptown station. I prefer to drive because I don’t like to cross Eglin parkway.

Beautiful spot. Close to the house. Fun atmosphere. Great for a night out. Cool bar, fire pit, ping pong. Waterfront! (It can be confusing to get to! You must turn right over the brooks bridge and go under the bridge and then take a left in front of alvins island. From there you will turn left on sibert drive.)

Turkey creek has a 1 mile boardwalk through the woods over wetlands and river/creek. Every couple feet there are ramps and steps to jump in. Great spot to walk, swim, paddle board and float! Afterwards (while you’re in Niceville) go to Cafe Bienville, The Local, or Pounders to eat!

The most popular beach spot on the island. Walk the pier, fish, many restaurants and shops. They usually do fireworks once a week of the pier. It’s definitely more of a party scene at this beach, than the more quiet public accesses. I would still consider it family friendly.
