The city of Crestview, FL is situated on the peak of a long woodland range between the Shoal and Yellow rivers. Known today as the “Hub City” of northwest Florida, Crestview sits at the junction of three major highways, just 50 miles east of Pensacola.
A mild climate year round and a 30-minute drive to the Gulf Coast makes this northwest panhandle city prime fun-in-the-sun real estate. Take a drive to the white-sand beaches on Okaloosa Island, part of Florida’s Emerald Coast. When you desire an alternative to building sand castles and wakeboarding in the Gulf of Mexico, enjoy boating, swimming and fishing at Choctawhatchee Bay at Ross Marler Park on the narrow island’s north shore.
Stick closer to Crestview at Blackwater River State Park and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking on a looped trail through a dry floodplain, tubing and swimming in one of the most pure sand-bottom rivers in the U.S. Be sure to get there early or stick around in late afternoon when you’re more likely to spot alligators, river otters, turkeys and great blue herons.
