City of Crestview, Florida

Crestview has some of the coldest winters in the state of Florida, which earned it the nickname, “The Ice Box of Florida.” It is also the second-rainiest city in the state. The name was chosen because of the city’s location on the peak of a long woodland range between the Yellow and Shoal rivers, which flow almost entirely parallel on the east and west side of the city. Most of the early residents came as a result of the railroad being built into the Florida panhandle.
