Although the Monopoly board is only so big, the game is a pretty thorough representation of South Walton — covering everything from The Walton Sun to Alaqua Animal Refuge.

"We wanted to make sure it celebrated our beach towns, our art and music scenes and our natural wonders," Wickey said. "We wanted it to stand the test of time and epitomize the beach experience.”
