Niceville could easily be considered the hub for entertainment on the Emerald Coast. With many annual festivals such as the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival, the city always has something going on no matter the time of the year. It is located in Okaloosa County. Though Niceville is approximately around fifteen to thirty minutes away from the beach, it has two large bayous: the Boggy Bayou and Rocky Bayou.
Niceville was officially named in 1910 after its separation from its neighboring town of Valparaiso. After the initial split, Niceville took the unofficial name of “Boggy” until its official name change of Niceville. To this day Niceville and Valparaiso are known as the “Twin Cities.”
Niceville is close in location to many major cities along the Emerald Coast. The Mid-bay Bridge is a 3.6 mile bridge that connects Niceville to Destin and areas such as South Walton.
The Northwest Florida Regional Airport is about five miles from Niceville and is the closest commercial airport in the area. The airport brings in many tourists to the area year around.
The annual Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival has brought in many big musician names over its history such as Jake Owens, Rascal Flatts, Gary Allan, Brantley Gilbert, Billy Ray Cyrus and more. It is always the third week in October and is a three day festival.
Niceville has many great schools and is a great area to raise a family. It is home to Niceville High School, which is credited to be one of the best schools in the area. Northwest Florida State College is also located in Niceville and is a four year school.
The beaches are nearby and conservation areas such as the Turkey Creek Boardwalk make Niceville a place to explore and enjoy the outdoors on the Emerald Coast.
As some say, “Nice Folks. Nice Town. Nice place to visit.”
