The fact that Ponce de Leon doesn't have a red light attests to the fact that it is a small, peaceful community, with a population of approximately 2,000. There are several nearby cities and attractions, however. It is located just 40 miles from the Gulf of Mexico with its beautiful, sandy, "World's Most Beautiful Beaches:" Panama City Beach, Destin, and Fort Walton Beach. In addition, Ponce de Leon is halfway between the capital city of Tallahassee on the east, and Pensacola on the west.

This is a great place to raise a family or simply retire away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We are blessed with Florida's world-famed wonderful climate.

The area retains a rustic charm of beauty and tranquility all its own. Here you can enjoy a slower paced living with plenty of elbow room. Ponce de Leon, located off Interstate 10 at exit 96, provides a motel; sandwich shop; adult beverage store; fruit and vegetable stand (offering fresh Florida products and hot boiled peanuts); four gas stations; and two locally-owned restaurants. In "Old Town Ponce de Leon," there is a park for horse and trail rides, where the motto is "we furnish the horses." You can see a steer with 8-foot horns here as well. A barbecue shop will be opening soon.

Fishing, hunting, golfing, and boating are just a few of the popular pastimes here. The fishing enthusiast will discover an area of great fishing, whether it be salt water or fresh water. Area fishing lakes include Cassidy, Holley, and Juniper. The Choctawhatchee River is a 10-minute drive. And of course, the Gulf offers some of the world's greatest deep sea fishing. Wild game such as deer, duck, and turkey abound in the surrounding wooded hills for the hunting enthusiast. Several golf courses are located nearby. Of course, given our location, there are numerous opportunities for the avid boater. Furthermore, horses are a main source of enjoyment in this area. Roping, team penning, trail rides, and family fun days are popular leisure activities.
