Holmes County is the central county of northwest Florida, located in the panhandle of the state.
For all its seclusions and wide open spaces, Holmes County is not far from modern urban facilities and “big city” pleasures.
Interstate 10 and U.S. Hwy. 90 lead east to Florida’s capitol city of Tallahassee
and west to the city of Pensacola. Each is no more than an hour and a half
drive away. Highway 79 South is a 30-minute direct route to the “World’s Most Beautiful Beaches,” and Highway 79 North leads to Dothan, one of Alabama’s fastest growing cities, approximately 35 minutes from Bonifay. State Highway
81 is also an additional access North and South.
The county is included in the 13-county economic coalition known as Florida's Great Northwest and is also in the regional group of 10 rural Florida counties known as Opportunity Florida.
