Enjoying the Best of Three Seasons Each Year!

No more winters for me now that I am living in Crestview, Florida. This region sees everything but winter, and I am right in between Tallahassee and Mobile Alabama if riding Interstate I-10. This is the part of the Sunshine State the tourists usually don't flock to, so we have some of the most stunning and quiet beaches you'll ever find.

The best areas in Crestview are the beaches, and I can ride my beach to Miramar Beach, Santa Rosa Island, and Pensacola Beach. These white-sand beaches are stunning all year, and I never have trouble setting up my blanket or eating fresh shrimp at Boshamp's Seafood and Oyster House. The barrier island is packed with every type restaurant you could imagine, and even has plenty of shopping centers from there to Crestview.

Living in Crestview is paradise, giving me the chance to slip on the interstate and head to Alabama or up to Georgia in hours. Historic Valdosta and Wild Adventures theme park is great for the kids and never crowded like Disney.
