Navarre, FL is Florida’s Best Kept Secret! As one of Florida’s fastest growing towns, Navarre is nestled along the Emerald Coast between Pensacola and Fort Walton Beach, I am so proud to call this place home for the past 13yrs. No matter where you reside in Navarre, you can access our crystal white beaches and emerald blue waters in less than 15minutes. Our fishing pier is the longest in Florida and the longest pier that extends in to the Gulf of Mexico. Although the population is greater than some small cities, with over 30k, it has a true small town atmosphere with festivals, community events, Music in the Park, firework celebrations and of course some of the top ranked schools in the state. It’s central location provides easy access to great shopping, restaurants, canoeing, hiking, zip lining, museums and so much more. The cost of living in Navare is lower than any other adjacent towns along the coast in the panhandle of Florida.
The real estate market in Navarre is a bustling one. There is a continuous influx of military moving in and out of the area which provides stability to both the sale and rental of residential real estate. We have a large military population because of our close proximity to Hurlburt Field AFB, Eglin AFB and Duke Field. One of the number one questions asked is the commute time to the bases. Hurlburt Field is the closest base and the drive time there is between 15-30minutes depending on where in Navarre you reside. You can get to Eglin in approx. 35-45 min. depending on where in Navarre you live and approx. 45min. to get to Duke Field. Not only do our military make up a large part of our community, we have many who have second homes in Navarre or have decided Navarre is the place to retire to.
As a longtime resident of Navarre and Holley By The Sea, I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. This is a community I love and I would love for it to be your community too!
When it comes to looking for the perfect home and community, schools are probably one of the top priorities on any families list of things to check out. Below you will find the schools that are in the Navare area along with links so you can really check out each one individually. I will say that my son, who is now a sophomore at UCF in Orlando went to school here in Navarre from 1st grade all the way to graduation. From one parent to another, I was very pleased and impressed with the schools here in Navarre. The different programs they offered such as the advanced placement and the dual enrollment opportunities really impacted my sons college opportunities. That was one of the reasons I chose to call Navarre home back in 2002.
For your convenience I have provided links to the Navarre area schools as well as a link to the Navarre Chamber of Commerce, in hopes you will find this information useful in your search for a new home.
