Crestview FL

Crestview offers something a bit different to the usual beachside lifestyle that is associated with Florida. This is mostly due to the fact that the town is not at sea level, but 235 feet above, making it one of the highest points in the state.

You might be asking why you would want to live in a place so close to the Emerald Coast, but so far above it. The closest beach areas to Crestview are Destin and Fort Walton, and to live in those places, you will pay handsomely. Beachside real estate is expensive, but Crestview is only a short distance away and is much more affordable. You get a lot more square footage for your dollar here.

Secondly, being so high up, you are protected from those pesky hurricanes that like to land in the area. Living close to the beach, you are completely exposed to extreme elements, but in Crestview, you will more than likely be safe.

Nothing is Out of Reach

While the town itself has plenty of amenities, including schools and medical facilities, if you require more in the way of entertainment, then you only have to travel a short distance to get there. Head east and you will find yourself at the Chautauqua Vineyard Winery. Head west, and you will end up at Pensacola, a place rich with history and a buzzing nightlife scene. Go south, and you will hit the beaches and everything that comes with it. Water sports, fishing, top dining, and shopping options are all within a short drive away.

Plenty to Do in Crestview

Even though the surrounding area is abundant with activities, there is still plenty to do in Crestview. You can pay the Emerald Coast Wildlife Park a visit. Set on 10 acres, you can see around 100 different animals, including monkeys, tigers, and lions.

Sports fans will enjoy Twin Hills Park. Home to basketball and soccer leagues, it also has tennis courts, an indoor gymnasium, and a stunning lake to picnic beside. For golf enthusiasts, the Fort Walton golf club is nearby.

Nature lovers can take a hike along the Turkey Creek Nature Trail and even venture into the creek for some canoeing and kayaking.

For a more easy-going activity, you could visit the Peaden Brothers Distillery to sample their whiskey and bourbon. For the ultimate in relaxation, head to the Adiva’s Ageless Aesthetics Spa.

Why end up with a small apartment just so you can be close to the shoreline? In Crestview, you can get a bigger nicer property, and be only 30 minutes away from the Emerald Coast. Life does not have to be a beach. It can be near the beach and still be just as fulfilling. With so much to do in and around Crestview, it is easy to see why it is such a great investment opportunity for real estate.
