Similar to what irmamar pointed out:

 Method  Example  Use  Formality 
 voy a + infinitive  Voy a caminar.  more immediate future  more informal 
 future tense  Caminaré.  more distant future  more formal 

You should also make note of the fact that when we use the future tense in English for the near future, that is often best expressed with the simple present tense in Spanish.

I'll pick you up at 3pm.
Voy por tí a las 3 de la tarde.

It is important for native Spanish speakers to remember this as well, when speaking English.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
