The Emerald Coast is the unofficial name for the coastal area of Florida that is officially known as the Florida Panhandle. Cities like Destin and Ft. Walton Beach are popular tourist destinations. “Dubbed the ‘Emerald Coast’ by a local junior high school student in 1983 (he won $50 for his efforts), the thin stretch of coastline along the Florida Panhandle between Pensacola and Panama City has long been featured on the itineraries of motoring families and spring breakers.” (courtesy of an article at Lonely Planet.)
Yes, the Emerald Coast is beautiful and a lot of fun, but like every positive, there is always a negative. With the influx of tourist and party goers, most who just come to enjoy themselves, there will also be people with bad things on their mind. One such bad thing is vandalism. There are gorgeous, expensive homes on the Emerald Coast, filled with valuables. This can be quite the temptation to vandals and even burglars.
