Looking for a home in Crestview? There are several beautiful areas that you may want to look for your home. Crestview is a city in Okaloosa County, Florida. Crestview was named due to 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 which is the Crest. Located away from all the chaos of the tourist towns but just close enough that we can still enjoy all the things Florida has to offer, such as the beaches and popular water parks and historical sites.
