More info about this area
The Emerald Coast refers to the strip of coastal cities that run from Pensacola to Panama City. The 100 mile strip is the destination for many tourists, resorts, and vacation homes, more frequently for those in the Southeast United States. Fort Walton, the home base for ECAR, has a population of around 22,284 residents. The highest point in the state is Lakewood Park, which rises to 345 feet above sea level, and the lowest point is where the shore meets the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico.
The Emerald Coast is known across the board for its beautiful white sand beaches and developmental communities. Seaside has taken the lead when it comes to Florida cities being designed on the principals of New Urbanism. The popularity of the Emerald Coast has caused an influx in these communities, increasing property value and a desire to stay in the coastal cities year-round. Fort Walton Beach is a fishing and beach resort community that thrives the most in the summer months, with a smaller peak season in the spring. Fort Walton is also home to two major Air Force Bases: Hurlburt Field and Eglin Air Force Base. On the westernmost side of Florida, Pensacola offers a number of 18th-century era neighborhoods and a number of annual festivals celebrating its history and culture. Naval Air Station Pensacola, the National Museum of Aviation, and Corry Station Naval Technical Training Center have all coined Pensacola with the nickname “The Cradle of Naval Aviation.”
The climate of Emerald Coast is warm and humid year-round, with a particularly rainy season from May to November. The summer high is typically around 90°F and the winter low is around 43°F. The coastal cities do not see snowfall and receive an average of 60 inches of rainfall per year.
