First Florida Bank

I have been banking with First Florida Bank (previously Destin First Bank) since their inception.  Great bank, great people, that are flexible and work with their account holders to maximize their banking experience.  I have personal and business accounts here and plan on remaining a customer for as long as they will have me.
