Centered on Florida’s Emerald Coast, Shalimar is perfectly situated among white sandy beaches, ecological hotspots, and the area’s rich Air Force heritage.
The nearby Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base offers rich aerospace, history only a short distance from your Shalimar accommodations. Alternatively, the region’s unrivaled ecological heritage at Florida's Gulfarium and the Emerald Coast Science Center is just down the road, at beautiful Fort Walton Beach.
The Emerald Coast’s temperate climate makes it a great destination for any outdoor enthusiast––near our hotel is the Shalimar Country Club, a perfect 18-hole course. There’s also jogging, walking, and biking at Meigs and Cherokee parks.
When it gets too hot, take a trip over Okaloosa Island to Destin, where you can spend the day cooling off at Big Kahuna’s Waterpark, or go fishing on a Flyliner Charters tour. Feeling brave? Try scuba diving with Emerald Coast Scuba.
Shalimar hotels are convenient to an eclectic variety of shopping, from the upscale Destin Commons to the Santa Rosa Mall, and nearby Fort Walton Beach offers plenty of boardwalk shopping. End a long day of shopping and sightseeing with some fresh seafood at The Crab Shack or Floyd’s Shrimp House.
