OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — It is officially Spring and the weather is heating up at the perfect time. Hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists are lining the Gulf Coast to soak up the sun during Spring Break and family vacations. One of the most frequently asked questions is: Can I drink alcohol on the beach?

WKRG broke down the rules and regulations for alcohol on beaches in Destin.
