A trip to Pensacola usually starts and ends at the beach — so in this case, head to Johnson Beach at Perdido Key. As a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Johnson Beach has one of Florida’s best views of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s a most enjoyable and relaxing location to fish from, and it’s a great place to bring a basket of goodies for a romantic – or family – getaway for the day. It was named for Rosamond Johnson, Jr., the first African-American and one of the first in the county to die in the Korean Conflict. For his bravery, he posthumously received a Purple Heart. Honor his bravery, and the sacrifices of the many African-American men and women who bravely served in defense of our country, by enjoying Johnson Beach.
I love Black History Month. It’s fun. It’s educational. It’s all about me. And it’s all about you. Join in and celebrate the month right here in Pensacola.
