NW Florida Friends is a fun social group for anyone 40 years of age and older wanting to meet people, have fun, and make friendships. Most of the events will be in northwest Florida, mostly Fort Walton Beach, Navarre, and Destin; however, we do occasionally have events in Pensacola, Panama City, and elsewhere.  We can meet for dinner, movies, plays, music, go to concerts or entertain at our homes. We can spend the day at the beach, go kayaking, boating, snorkeling, walking, exercise, volunteer, or just meet for coffee and conversation. There may be day trips or weekend getaways if you're up for it.

This is NOT a singles group but singles are welcome.  You can be married, single, widowed, divorced or in a relationship, everyone is welcome!

We want this to be casual, laid-back, easy-going, and very welcoming!  All we ask is that you attempt to be positive, try to have fun, be active in the group, and be ready to make new friends. So get out of the house and join us for some good times!

All members can set up meetups in our group!  We will also welcome other organizers, so let us know if you are interested.  There will be a very small yearly sign-up fee of $5 to cover the cost of the fees.

Note that this group was formerly Florida Friends over 50, but we are opening it to those 40 and older.

We're 99 NW Florida Friends

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
