    Find Fun in the Florida Sun with These MilitaryByOwner Homes near Eglin AFB

    Picture the quiet surf of the turquoise sea lapping at your bare feet. Imagine a soft breeze gliding along the silky white sand. While you find yourself drifting into beachy daydreams, let me tell you more about Florida’s Emerald Coast!

    The sugary sand of Henderson Beach State Park will have you feeling as if you’re in Gulf Coast paradise. From nearby Destin, Florida, Eglin Air Force Base is only 13 miles away. This popular military installation edges the bay and bayou waters of the Florida panhandle. With plenty to see and do in the Eglin area, military families who have been stationed at Eglin recommend the family-friendly communities of Niceville and Crestview.

    Let’s take a look at a dynamic duo of Sunshine State properties listed on MilitaryByOwner.

    From Eglin AFB, follow the curve of the parkway for about 13 miles and you’ll sail into the Bluewater Bay neighborhood of Niceville, Florida and this Turnberry Cove estate.
