Destin is a great place to purchase a vacation home, or raise a family or retire. There is much to offer besides the obvious great weather and natural beauty of the Gulf and white sand beaches. The economy is strong and vibrant in Destin, the schools are consistently some of the best in the state, there is a strong arts and cultural presence in the city and the quality of life is one that many people envy. Known far and wide as a family-oriented community, Destin is often called “The Jewel” of the Emerald Coast. It is located in Okaloosa County, which encompasses an area of 1,300 square miles, including 59 miles of inland waters. Walton County, which borders the state of Alabama, spans an area of 1,028 square miles, and is covered with unspoiled land, lakes, rivers, streams and 28 miles of beautiful, white sand Gulf beaches. Getting into the area is easy, with an excellent network of highways providing easy access. The Okaloosa County Regional Airport is located on State Road 85 between Fort Walton Beach and Niceville, and additional service is available at the nearby Pensacola Regional Airport. The Intracoastal Waterway passes through Fort Walton Beach along the shores of Santa Rosa Sound into Choctawhatchee Bay.

Okaloosa County is becoming a leader in the technology industry in Northwest Florida. Five important areas stand out when considering a move to the Destin/Fort Walton area: the high tech industry located here, the excellent educational opportunities, the lower cost of living, the military impact in the community and the life-style advantages, such as a warm climate and plentiful recreational opportunities. Real Estate in the area ranges from charming beachside cottages, condos/townhomes and single family homes. When considering a move to the Destin area, all of the surrounding communities should be taken into consideration, as well. The following is a brief description of some of them:

Okaloosa Island is the Gulf front beach community of Fort Walton Beach, located between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is known for its’ sugar white sand beaches, pier and boardwalk with nightly entertainment, restaurants, hotels and shops.

Fort Walton Beach is located on the Intercoastal Waterway and Choctawhatchee Bay. It has a Main Street Old Town Shopping Center, museums, outdoor activities, restaurants, the Santa Rosa Mall and Uptown Station Shopping Center.

The Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is the premier resort on the Gulf Coast spanning 2,400 acres and 7.5 miles of sugar white beach and bay front on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Seaside Beach is an up-scale, planned beach community with 200 Victorian/Post-Modernist architecture homes and cottages located in South Walton - halfway between Destin and Panama City Beach. The homes are situated around a town square with an outdoor amphitheater and art and clothing boutiques. Seaside is perhaps best known as the location for the movie, "The Truman Show" that featured Jim Carey.
