Emerald Coast Florida Real Estate

Enjoy the scenic tour of our beautiful Emerald Coast!

Welcome to the beautiful Emerald Coast - a coastline of sparkling white beaches that span approximately 100 miles from Pensacola, the western-most city in the Northwest Florida Panhandle, eastward to Panama City Beach. The Emerald Coast is founded on its beautiful white sandy beaches. The pure white sands we enjoy here are a result of finely crushed quartz crystal residue that flows down the Apalachicola River from the Appalachian Mountains up north.

Also known as “The Playground of the Gulf Coast,” the Emerald Coast has something for everyone. Whether you are wanting quiet solitude, a fishing trip, water sports, golfing, hiking, biking, shopping, or the best in dining - you will find it here all year-around!

The Gulf coastline has come a long way from its early history of sleepy little fishing and trading villages. While the economy along our coast has changed quite a bit since those early days, some things remain the same. Destin, for instance, is still known as “The World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” Locals and tourists alike share the same passion as did those of the past - to head out to the bays, rivers, and Gulf for a day (or more) of fishing. Festivals pop up all along the coast to celebrate the spoils of these fishing expeditions with great food and music.

The traders of the past would be in awe of the shopping possibilities we enjoy here today. Visit the Destin Commons, an open-air lifestyle community made up of 90+ boutique shops, cinema, and restaurants to satisfy any shopping need.  HarborWalk Village in Destin offers the best in waterfront shopping. We also have many locally owned boutiques, antique shops, along with “beachy” shops to pick up that perfect piece of clothing, home décor, or beach item. The Silver Sands Premium Outlets in the Miramar Beach/Sandestin area offers another open-air shopping center that boasts 110 designer and name-brand outlet stores along with a selection of restaurants. The Village of Baytowne Wharf, located on the Choctawhatchee Bayside in Sandestin features an array of boutiques, eateries, galleries and nightlife - not to mention a full schedule of outdoor activities year-around. If you are in the Panama City Beach area, stop by Pier Park for another experience in open-air shopping of 124 stores, dining and live music!

If shopping isn’t your thing, check out the numerous theme parks throughout the area. Wild Willy’s Adventure Zone will keep the young and young-at-heart entertained for hours playing miniature golf or hanging out in the arcade zone. The Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park east of Destin or Gulf World Marine Park in Panama City Beach will astound with their marine life shows. The Big Kahuna’s is a day of fun at an amazing waterpark. And these are just a few possibilities!

We also boast some of the best golf courses in Florida. Many have made it into Golf Digest’s “Top Places to Play” in North America. With lush terrain and views from Gulf to Bay - golfing doesn’t get any better than this!

The day is not complete without a meal at any one of our outstanding local eateries. While you will find many of the recognizable chain restaurants along our coast, the area has many local eateries which feature seafood dishes prepared fresh with seafood scooped out of the Gulf for a mouth-watering taste that is pure heaven.

Music and art are a big part of the South and Northwest Florida’s Emerald Coast shares that love of both with festivals and events throughout the year drawing renowned musicians and artists from across the globe. We’ve even drawn the attention of movie makers with several scenes from “Jaws 2” filmed in our region, along with exterior shots and interior scenes for 1998’s “The Truman Show” filmed in Seaside.

With this continued interest and growth in our area, along with close proximity to two airports, our mild climate and friendly people - it is no wonder the Emerald Coast is the place to be.
