Their words, not mine..
My mother and mother-in-law are coming with us on this trip.
One is 56, the other is 62. Neither drinks more than the VERY occasional
glass of wine, and they don't particularly care for crowds of people,
really loud music, or smoky bars.
Other than shopping, I really don't know what to suggest that they do.. we generally try to get as much beach time as possible, but I think they want to explore the area, especially during the day when it's so hot on the beach.
We'll be there the 12th thru 19th of August, so any festivals or the like would probably be a good bet.
Any suggestions on what activities in the area they might enjoy?

Shameless plug: We'd LOVE to have them come in and paint pottery here at Fired Up in Seaside! We've added many new pottery items in recent weeks, including beach-related, holiday ornaments, pet dishes, etc. C'mon by and see us at 27 Quincy Circle in Seaside, by Sea of Silver and Aquarius Spa, open 10am-5pm 7 days a week. Ring 850-231-3211 for more info.

IBD.. thanks for the suggestions!
We've been trying to convince mother-in-law to come with us for four years now.. finally succeeded! I just want to make sure she has a really good time.
And we have already (thanks to this board!) added Fired Up as a must-visit for this year. :)
Does anyone know of any local nightspots that aren't as crowded, and don't play country or rock? Maybe jazz or oldies, I think they'd love that.

Pandora's has an assortment of entertainment for all ages, not all loud and never rock. They also may enjoy Rendavous (spell check pls) in Seaside. There's another great place in Destin, but may be too far.
