There are already lots of great reasons for living in Destin like the climate, the beaches, the people and a vibrant local economy but being able to live in a great neighborhood would be the icing on the cake for most people we feel. So to that end we've put together a quick guide to some of the best neighborhoods in Destin for you to check out.

Emerald Coast Parkway

This coastal neighborhood is made up of single-family homes and a number of apartments too and is one of the more exclusive places to live anywhere in Florida, so you can expect most of your neighbors to be both well educated and quite wealthy. If you'd prefer to be surrounded by other young professionals then that's one reason to want to live here and if you work from home you'll be happy to know you're not alone with almost 15% of the residents here doing the same.

Main Street/Airport Road

This is another of the many coastal neighborhoods in Destin and is again made up of mostly single-family homes of 3-4 bedrooms in size and a mixture of low and high-rise apartment complexes, with many of the homes in this area having been built between 1977 and around the year 2000. One very interesting fact about this part of Destin is the number of active military personnel who live here - you'll see them going about their business all day and all night. This is a popular middle-upper class area with property prices in the $230,000 price range.

Calhoun Avenue/Beach Drive

With property prices starting at around $200,000 this Destin neighborhood is one of the more affordable and you still get all the benefits of living in a coastal neighborhood, plus many of the homes in the area are no more than 30 - 40 years old. There's a nice mix of people living in this neighborhood, including students and military personnel, and the fact that it's within walking distance of most things you need is also an added bonus.
