Then it will be time to cool off in one of the Inn's two pools; or chill out in the Jacuzzi.

Pineapple Cabana

X
The day begins with a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice and a steaming cup of coffee. You head out the front door, and the short walk to the beach, and, because it is early, there is no one there - nothing but the rhythmic waves crashing against the white shell sand of Florida's Emerald Coast. You walk back, smiling and waving to the couple from 'Coral Cabana, ' to find the household up and about, with kids playing and breakfast cooking and all the joyous confusion of a family vacation. Or maybe it's just you and your spouse (or that special someone), and coffee and the morning paper, sitting on the large wrap around front porch, listening to the birds chirp and smelling the glorious smells of the ocean in the early morning. One way or another, there can be no doubt this is that little bit of heaven you have been dreaming of all year, knowing these will be the memories you will be telling your friends.

The Fort De Soto Park has large fenced areas for both large and small dogs, including dog showers for those hot days. Dogs are allowed anywhere in the park on a six-foot leash, except on any beach. The Paw Playground area is the exception -- dogs are allowed on the beach, and they are allowed off leash on that area of beach. They can also run free inside the fenced areas. On a hot summer day, you can cool off your dog by hosing him down, and drinking water is available too. The park also has plenty for two-legged visitors too -- an old Spanish fort to explore, gorgeous parks, overnight camping with plenty of amenities, and picnic areas. The north beach was named "America's #1 Beach" in 2008 & 2009 by TripAdvisor.
