The Crestview community has enjoyed a constant steady growth for many years now. In fact, there are thousands of new homes being built in Crestview and several new apartment complexes ready to welcome you. Also, with the military installations being so near, the sales of existing homes is steady. Amid this expansion, businesses are pouring in to the Crestview area bringing new jobs, services, retails and markets. Even amongst all the growth, Crestview has been able to maintain its small town charm.
Many people describe Crestview as friendly, caring and safe. In fact, we are known to have one of the lowest crime rates in the state of Florida. Our school system resides in a county that has been recognized as one of the best in the state for the past two years. We have a sense of community and provide for our families, youth and the elderly.
Crestview is one of the highest points in the state; it receives 65 inches of rainfall annually, the second-most of any city in the state of Florida, next to Fort Walton Beach with 69 inches. The town was once known as “the icebox of Florida”, due to it having the coldest winters in the state. Today it goes by a more popular nickname as the “Hub City” of Northwest Florida.
