Freeport is a city located in Walton County, in the middle of the "panhandle" portion of Florida. It's just under 100 miles east of Pensacola, and closest to Rock Hill, Bruce and Defuniak Springs. The natural surroundings are the dominant characteristic of Freeport, as numerous nature preserves are nearby and the city is right on the edge of Choctawhatchee Bay, close to the Gulf of Mexico. Families interested in homes for rent in an area that's tranquil and removed from the frantic pace of city living will find much to love about Freeport.
Once a major location for transportation routes and connecting steamboat and stagecoach shipping operations, today Freeport is a developing city with easy connections to Pensacola, Tallahassee and Mobile, Alabama. It's a quaint and tight-knit community that any family would relish the opportunity to join.
