Florida is well known for its abundance of waterfront homes; however searching for a waterfront home can be a bit tricky. First you must decide what type of water you would like to live on. The choices are numerous; lakefront, riverfront, creek, intracoastal waterway, canal, harbor, bay or maybe even gulf front? If you prefer a home on a saltwater canal than you must decide, freshwater or saltwater? The size of one’s boat can be a determining factor; sailboats need deep saltwater canals with Gulf access, those with smaller boats have a few more options, since they can be used in the more shallow canals. Freshwater canals are wonderful for those who enjoy fishing, catch dinner from your own backyard! There are numerous lakes and creeks in the area that are perfect for nature lovers and bird watchers, you may even spot the occasional alligator! Sun worshippers will love the white sand beaches just steps from the door of their gulf front home, and those who prefer one of the many Harbors and Bays in the area will delight in regular sightings of dolphins and manatees.
