History and Charm Await in Pensacola

Pensacola is a great town for a walking tour whether you're traveling with a significant other or the whole family. From exploring the quaint atmosphere of the historic village to enjoying the many restaurants and shopping venues in town, there is always something entertaining to keep you occupied.

Beaches

Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is the closest beach, located on Santa Rosa Island, a scenic fifteen minute drive from downtown Pensacola. Besides the white sand and clear waters of the Gulf, the beach offers a variety of seafood restaurants and a boardwalk.

Perdido Key

Just a half hour away, Perdido Key fronts the Gulf of Mexico as well. To get there, you pass right by Big Lagoon State Park, another local attraction.

Destin Beach

Destin Beach is less than fifty miles away, and it has the same soft, fine white sand as other Gulf beaches. Destin originated as a small fishing village, and it's named after a fishing captain who founded the settlement. Like Pensacola Beach, it's part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Local Attractions

National Naval Aviation Museum

Pensacola is home to the Naval Aviation Museum, and the spacious museum holds over 140 expertly restored naval aircraft. There's also a gift shop, a café and an IMAX theater that features films like 'The Magic of Flight' and 'Coral Reef Adventure'.

Historic Pensacola

Pensacola's unique architecture is worth touring, and it dates from the days of the Spanish colonization of Florida. There are four history museums in the downtown area, and the Historic Pensacola Village offers tours by guides in period costumes.

Shopping

There is a lot of opportunity to go shopping in downtown Pensacola, with all of the antique shops, art galleries and clothing stores. The Market Shops at Sandestin is a shopping venue that includes twenty-eight specialty and gift shops.

Dining and Nightlife

McGuire's Irish Pub & Brewery

Don't miss this off-the-wall Irish eatery in Pensacola. It's a bar, a burger joint and a steakhouse all in one. The walls are papered with one-dollar-bills signed by patrons, and the food choices include a 16-ounce steak.

Eight Sisters Blues Cafe

Offering home-style Southern food, Eight Sisters also puts on a spread for Sunday Brunch. One of their specialties is smothered pork chops, and they claim their fried chicken is better than your grandma's.

Dharma Blue

For a quaint atmosphere, check out this restaurant located in a restored Victorian home. The menu selections are an eclectic mix of choices like sushi, pasta and fresh catch of the day.

The Seville Quarter

If you want to do all your bar hopping in one place, The Seville Quarter is a unique downtown venue that includes several dining and musical experiences under one roof. Bands play every weekend, and dueling pianos is one of the popular acts.

Weather

Pensacola is warm in the summer and chilly in the winter, with temperatures that dip into the forties. In the spring and fall, the gorgeous weather makes it one of the nicest places to visit. During the summer months, temperatures hover in the eighties, rarely reaching ninety. The rainfall is mild, and it's slightly greater in the summer.

How to Get There

From the east or west, Pensacola is approached by I-10 and then south on the I-10 Business Loop. The approach from the north is on FL 29. The Pensacola International Airport is only thirteen miles away and it has car rental facilities available. There are also taxis and shuttles for transportation to the downtown area and beaches.

                                                            Great house for big get-together!!

                                                            A college roommate of mine was getting married in Pensacola so myself and my other roommates rented this house to enjoy the weekend together. It was perfect! We were not too far from the city/beach, and had a wonderful view. The rooms were very nice, and the beds were so comfortable. We loved being able to spend the weekend and not have to worry about being too loud in a hotel room. The view from the front porch was remarkable. Every morning we woke up and enjoyed our coffee while looking out over the water. There was even a nice walking path right along the water where we could get in and cool off!

                                                            We all enjoyed Alan's beautiful,peaceful and enjoyable house during our stay. My mom liked the house very much too, stated "now I go nowhere but just stay in the house to enjoy the beauty of the house! 4 days is very short!" lol ...our boys all enjoyed jumping into the river and play, though we also bring them to the beach. All at ease! Yes and we also did one time BBQ at the yard , that was fun too. All in all very nice vacation house to stay for aged people and children,thank you Alan! Qing San Francisco

                                                            Nice house for walking your evenings! Close to beach, Walk to restaurants!

                                                            We rented this house to visit with our son and his "more than a girlfriend"! We arrived a couple of days before them and enjoyed going to the beach and sunshine. Son had previously lived in P-cola and picked out this house for its location. We easily walked to restaurants every night for dinner and walked to the farmers market on Saturday. The neighborhood was nice just to take a walk! We drove from Virginia and packed a kitchen/house box, but the house was setup well so a lot of things I brought went home with the kids! The kitchen was nice and large and there is enough pots and pans etc. to do some cooking. There is a fancy coffee maker but honestly we went and bought a 12 cup basic drip machine to keep up with all four of us! (sent that home with the kids too!) The towels and linens were nice and the house is decorated nicely too. Plenty of room to spread out and relax. I did bring extra kitchen supplies and towels and was glad I did because then I could clean up the way I wanted. There were no washclothes so I was glad one of the little kitchen towels I brought could substitute and I was the only one who wanted one anyway. The master bedroom and bathroom are massive and there is plenty of room to hang clothes and get ready for whatever adventure you have planned for the day or night.The second bedroom and another full bathroom are also upstairs. Staying here was FAR superior to a hotel. Our son is in the Navy, and we had not seen him for months. It was nice to just be able to hang out together and catch up. The house is perfect for two couples and the couch is really large, so I guess that 5th person could sleep there! I appreciated that I could speak to the owner before renting. He was very responsive to all our questions.
