We are relocating for my husbands job, he will be working at Eglin. we have been to the destin area on vacation but never really paid any attention to the surrounding areas. We are looking into Freeport or Crestview. We can spend 200-220K. Any suggestions and info would be appreciated.

Pros for Crestview:

Better schools, especially middle and high school
Easier and shorter commute to Eglin
More shopping, dining, health care, church options right in town- in Freeport, those kinds of options are rather limited
Will probably get more square footage for the money
Easy I-10 access

Pros for Freeport:
Easy access to beach and luxury Beaches of South Walton area
Nothing in Crestview similar to Hammock Bay, though your options there are somewhat limited at your price point
Better weather- slightly cooler in summer and slightly warmer in winter, it's enough that you're in a different gardening zone
