      My town of Destin, Florida is an absolutely incredible place to live. The atmosphere of this place is heavenly. With a population of less than 15,000, even when tourists flock here, it still manages to keep a small-town vibe.

      Living in Destin, Florida gives you a chance to literally live out a seaside dream. If you aren’t working, just take a chair and go a few miles (if even that far) to the beach and have a relaxing time. There are multiple options for housing as well. You can choose to rent or buy and will be able to find something that fits your budget.

      The best areas in Destin, Florida are of course the beach areas. The sand is white and the water is clear. The crime rate overall here is also lower than many other beach areas. There is just so much good here, that I can’t describe it all. From dining out to shopping for the perfect gift or even if you want to take a deep sea fishing trip. All of it can happen here in Destin, Florida.
