The Best Communities for the Outdoorsman to Call HomePosted on 05/24/17
When you think of Florida, your mind probably conjures images of white sand beaches and palm trees. While that’s often the case, especially along the coastline, there are also plenty of forests, rivers, lakes and land for the great outdoorsman to call home.
While you can find beauty, activities, and amenities in every community, sometimes you just have to know where to look to find the right fit. Let us match your favorite outdoor hobby to the right community. Then, let Kerry Veach help you find the right home for sale.
For the Fisherman:
Ok, so this one’s a no-brainer. Where else would an avid angler live besides Destin—coined the “world’s luckiest fishing village.” With fishing tournaments year round, and the famous Destin fishing rodeo, there are as many opportunities to catch the big one as you have sick days.
For the Hunter:
Locals know Niceville runs alongside some of the best hunting land on Eglin’s reservation. Eglin offers an annual sportsman permit to accompany your Florida hunting license. This permit allows you access to hunt nearly half a million acres in Okaloosa, Walton, and Santa Rosa counties during open season.
For the Camper:
If you’re into biking, canoeing, kayaking, and hiking, you want to live near Fred Gannon State Park in Bluewater Bay. This state park on Rocky Bayou has access to all of the aforementioned, plus, on any given day, you’ll find dolphins swimming alongside your kayak. The Bayou connects to the Choctawhatchee Bay, making it ideal for boating, tubing, and fishing too.
