Holiday Builders offers new homes throughout the northwest portion of Florida and lower Alabama, also known as the Panhandle region. Despite being in the northern part of Florida, the Panhandle has a distinctly southern culture. Hurlburt Field, Tyndall Air Force Base and Eglin Air Force Base bring in service men and women from all over the country. Besides the military, Baptist Health Care and Sacred Heart Health Systems are major employers as is Navy Federal Credit Union. Residents and tourists flock to beaches on the Emerald Coast, largely a tourist destination, and the Forgotten Coast which has a more laid back feel. Both coasts are known for clean white sand and emerald waters. During the months of January and February, temperatures can get chilly at night. The town of Crestview claims the coolest temperatures in the state. The Panhandle is the least populated area of the state and contains some of the most beautiful natural resources with extensive pine and hardwood forests, swamps and springs, barrier islands, beaches and tidal marshes. Unlike the rest of Florida, the Panhandle is in the Central Time Zone, an hour earlier than everyone else in the state. Holiday Builders offers award-winning floor plans in a variety of styles to meet the needs of your family – whether you’re buying your first home or your last.
