Living along the Beaches of Northwest Florida

Northwest Florida Beaches

The beaches in Northwest Florida, also known as the Emerald Coast are beautiful and among the best beaches in the world.  They are known for their beautiful color, an emerald color yet can be crystal clear during the summer.  These beaches are kept looking their best but it can be a cycle between weather and restoration.  Thankfully the city knows the important role they play in tourism.

Destin's beach is extremely popular among locals which is probably why there are almost as many real estate agents as there are pelicans.  Where else can you live in such a beautiful place and have the opportunity to sell a peice of paradise over and over again.  Are you jealous?  If so visit here for Destin or here for further West like in Navarre or Pensacola.  Destin and Fort Walton are very well known but there are lots of other smaller communities along the Emerald Coast that tourists to include celebrities like to visit.

Sea Turtles and Dolphins

Please leave sea turtles alone, they are protested animals.  Also there are lots of opportunities to see dolphins, but please don't feed them, it is for their portection and its like a $10,000 fine if you get caught.  Seriously.

Sand Dunes

Sand dunes along our beaches protect the roads and homes that line the beaches.  Please don't walk on them and use a designated path instead.  Thanks.
