The beautiful beaches of Northwest Florida have collected many distinctions and awards over the year’s, but we must say, this is a new one, even for us. The Okaloosa Island water tower, seen here, has been named Tank of the Year!
If you have ever enjoyed a vacation in a Fort Walton Beach condo then you are no stranger to the water tower that is centered on the island. It has had many looks and designs over the year but we can’t help but agree, this one is truly beautiful. Depicting the emerald green waters that the Emerald Coast is known for, it is definitely something to behold when you drive over the Brooks Bridge or in from visiting the Destin attractions. The design required 14 different colors and was handpainted by a team earlier this year.
Be sure to take a look into the skies for our award-winning water tower during your next Emerald Coast vacation. If you decide to stay in a Panama City Beach vacation rental, check out their tower, as well. It finished a close second in this close competition.

Beach Bundle is being offered for our condos in Fort Walton Beach and Panama City Beach rentals. So, what is it exactly? Well, RentGearHere.com provides a range of beach toys, bikes, and baby gear rentals but Beach Bundle is just a small sample of that. With Beach Bundle, you will find two backpack beach chairs and an awesome boogie board waiting for you when you arrive at your vacation rental. The chairs have padded headrest, a place to set your cold beverage and straps to carry them down that will leave your hands free to maneuver the family. And, the kids are going to love the boogie board! This isn’t your typical beach store find; this is a high-end slice of wave-cruising fun. Beach Bundle is also a part of our Windmark Beach homes on the Forgotten Coast. Enjoy the use of four backpack chairs, as well as four bicycles perfect for cruising the coast.
Beach Bundle is included as a part of your Fort Walton Beach, Panama City Beach and Windmark Beach reservations. Don’t pack the beach chairs this summer, just book with Southern to have them waiting for you when you arrive!
