Navarre Beach is surrounded by natural beauty, cool activities and delicious eats and sips. There is no shortage of Instagrammable places, but here are five you can’t miss.
- Walking the Blackwater River Walk in historic downtown Milton
Historic downtown Milton is a quick drive north from Navarre Beach. Between the historic architecture, scrumptious food and the iconic Imogene Theatre, there are no shortage of places to get your Insta fix, but my favorite photo worthy spot is along the Riverwalk with the expanse of the Blackwater River at your back.
- Visiting Sweet Pea at the Navarre Beach Sea Turtle Conservation Center
The NBSTCC is a unique place dedicated to education on and conservation of endangered sea turtles. The center is home to a variety of local wildlife including Sweet Pea, the center’s resident green sea turtle. Sweet Pea is just a juvenile sea turtle, weighing only about 16 pounds, but an accident with fishing line caused her to lose one of her front flippers meaning she can never be released into the wild. But that has not slowed her down.
She’s a real testament to the resiliency of nature and a fun little gal. Get your photo with our gal and don’t forget to tag the center.
- Paying respects at Blackhawk Memorial
On March 10, 2015, an air training accident over Santa Rosa Sound claimed the lives of 11 service members when a Blackhawk helicopter plummeted into the waters. In their honor, a memorial has been set up in the heart of Navarre Park, overlooking the scene of the tragedy.
At just the right time in the afternoon, the sun gleams beautifully off the wings of the memorial’s eagle creating a worthwhile photo to honor the fallen men and women who served this country.
- Trying the flight at Ye Olde Brothers Brewery
Ye Olde Brother Brewery is the first craft brewery to open in Navarre. Aside from featuring some delicious wood fire pizza and smoked meats, this brewery is home to dozens of locally made beers. From the amazing Black Bear Honey Wheat to my personal favorite, the Blackwater Stout, these brothers have mastered the art of incredible beer. And the menu changes with the season. One day you may find a porter that tastes like coffee and chocolate and the next day it’s a wit with a touch of Florida blueberries.
The best way to experience all they have to offer is to try the flight. Snap a pic of the colorful arrangement before you start tasting them.
- Enjoying the sunset along Navarre Beach Fishing Pier
The longest fishing pier in the Gulf of Mexico is right here along Navarre Beach Fishing Pier. To walk the pier only costs a dollar per person. For the best photo of a Navarre Beach sunset walk about halfway down the pier and turn slightly to the right (west) to get the full effect of the sky and water. Truly breathtaking.
