The Waterfront and th

Located along the Boggy Bayou, Niceville is a river front town keen for boating, skiing, and other water sports. During October, the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival brings the area alive with food, arts, and festivities. For seafood and fun, there is no better place to be than the waterside. Known for having a country feel to the music, guest, such as Kellie Pickler and Rascal Flatts, have graced the stage here. Sunshine year round will keep you outdoors at all times, regardless if the festival is come or gone. Every Saturday is a nice day to fire up the grill and chill on the shore.

Quality Education

The education system in Niceville is top notch. The public school system is comprised of elementary schools and high schools receiving quality scores of eight, nine, and 10 out of 10 based on third-party reviews. For the family, this is ideal as the youth are the future and quality education paves the way. Post high school, the youth benefit from a selection of high performing colleges in or around the city, including Northwest Florida State College. With advanced degree opportunities and work placement services, the outlook is nice for the future movers and shakers of Niceville.

Have Some Fun

Although more of a tourist town full of families, there is plenty of entertainment to be found. The Mullet Festival is an obvious draw but golf, yachting, clubbing, and other forms of entertainment are here for those interested. The Shalimar Pointe Golf Club is just a hop, skip, and a jump away, offering a lush 18-hole course. Howl at The Moon just over in Destin offer drinking, music, and good food fit for a guys’ or girls’ night out. This is just the tip of the iceberg as fine dining, movie theaters, casual dining, and more is all within driving or walking distance.
