The historic city of Pensacola is almost completely surrounded by water, giving it a scenic coastal quality that’s perfect for a Florida vacation. The city is served by Pensacola Regional Airport
a small hub that’s adequately connected to the major cities in Florida and nearby.
Although Pensacola is surrounded by water, the white powdery beaches for which Florida is so well known are nowhere to be found within the city proper. If looking for the beach, get in a car and drive over to Pensacola Beach
, which is actually a neighboring area but extremely popular among beachgoers. For those so inclined, there are several hotels located right in Pensacola Beach, including luxury ocean-front resorts as well as modest accommodations.
Within the city of Pensacola, the warm summer months are the perfect time for visitors, with the city’s parks and historic downtown filling up with people and regular free concerts taking place at the old Seville Quarter
. It’s the perfect time to slow down, enjoy the long days and extended sunsets in this relaxed beach town.
