When you call Crestview home, people might ask you how things are up on the hill. At about 230 feet above sea level, many believe Crestview is one of the higher elevation points in the state. Crestview’s name was chosen because of its location on the peak of a long woodland range between the Yellow and Shoal rivers which flow almost parallel on the east and west side of the city. With a rich history and quick commute time to military bases, it’s easy to see why Crestview was rated as one of the fastest growing cities in the Country. Don’t forget, you are less than an hour away from the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
