    Travel Reporter Carrie Mclaren discovers South Walton, a stretch of gulf coast turquoise waters and sugar white sand filled with great beaches and resorts.

    Carrie McLaren: So this is our first time visiting South Walton. I am just absolutely amazed at the color of the water and the sand, it's absolutely beautiful. It's just laidback, it's very family friendly, and it's a lot of things that we haven't experienced before.

    Darrell Smith: I believe the Hilton Sandestin is one of the most sought after spots, because it just encompasses all those needs that your family would have. When you walk in the door you are like, wow, we are here and now we can just relax. You just can't wait to get upstairs, put that swimsuit on and run to that beach. Carrie McLaren: So it's important for my family to go on vacation together, that's how we make our memories. So to come somewhere like this and be able to experience it, to run out on the beach with my kids and see the joy and excitement on their face, playing in the sand, that's special to me, and I think that's really important for us.
