Our beaches are just the beginning.

(But WHAT a beginning!)


You probably know about our world-famous beaches – but that sugar-white beauty is just the beginning.

The Pensacola Bay area offers you a picture-perfect blend of arts, history, culture and Southern hospitality. Walk the unspoiled beaches of Gulf Islands National Seashore, voted the best attraction in Florida by voters in a 10Best/USA Today poll. Soak up the afternoon sun hiking, birding, biking, sailing, kayaking, fishing, or choose from plenty of other things to do. A stroll through downtown’s historic streets puts award-winning flavors, live music, and museums at your fingertips. Roam the halls of pre-Civil War forts, climb one of Florida’s oldest lighthouses or explore the National Naval Aviation Museum, one of the world’s largest aviation museums.

Or sit quietly and gaze at the horizon, content to do absolutely nothing. We completely understand this choice.

Just remember: you have options. So take your time and see all you could be missing.
