Things To Do

There’s plenty to discover north of Choctawhatchee Bay in Walton County Florida, including our hometown of DeFuniak Springs. The once gated, Chautauqua Institution flourished here until the mid-20th century. Today, with its well-known Historic Downtown District, it’s a great destination for dining, shopping, and things to do. Don’t forget to drive or walk the Circle Drive around Lake DeFuniak. Nearly 200 historic homes and buildings are located here, including 5 on the National Historical Registry. Sunbright Inn, the oldest home in Walton County, first with electricity and indoor plumbing, and now the finest hotel, is one of them. We invite you to explore all Walton County and charming DeFuniak Springs have to offer.

Area Dining

For tasty pasties and coffee, head over to the Perla Baking Company, they also offer a great sit down breakfast, as does Sweet Southern Comfort, a new restaurant in town specializing in southern home cooked cuisine. Café Nola, a terrific seafood restaurant with a New Orleans-style ambiance, is a favorite for dinner. Their Bourbon Street Lounge is also the perfect stop for a craft cocktail. Bogey’s, located in the center of the historic district, is known for its wonderful food, service and atmosphere.
