Things to do around Okaloosa island?

We are headed to Okaloosa island for Spring break next week. Any "must see" places around the area? We will have a 6 year old and a 2 year old with us and will probably be on the beach a lot. :) Also, any suggestions on what to do on rainy days? We are staying at the Island Princess, in case that matters.

This is our first time to the area, and we are really excited about it!!

Thank you!

Check out Big Kahuna Water and Adventure park (wave pool, slides, go carts, lazy river, etc) and also The Track Family Recreation park for kiddie rides, bumper cars, etc. The kids also might like to see the dolphins on the dolphin cruises. There is a big outlet mall - Silver Sands - lots of ice cream shops for rainy days. These are all in Destin. Also, be sure to go to the Village of Baytowne Wharf in SanDestin, (we usually go late afternoon and eat dinner there) lots of restaurants, shops and kids activities. Kids also like to go to Fudpuckers for dinner just because there is alot to look at (gators). Most days I am sure you'll enjoy Okaloosa Island and the beautiful powder soft white beaches and emerald green water, and the kids will love looking for shells and building sand castles. Hope you have a great trip!

Thank you both for your recommendations! We loved the Gulfarium and Baytowne wharf! SanDestin was perfect for a sunny evening and the Gulfarium for the cool morning we had yesterday.
