We hold this truth to be self-evident: that the Pensacola Bay Area is the place to stay be on Independence Day.
July Fourth is one of my favorite public holidays. Not only is it a chance to remember our rich history and those who gave their lives for our independence — it’s also a great party: the joyous sounds of families laughing; the delicious taste of that fifth hot dog of the day; the fireworks that ignite the night with their raucous blasts; the faint, yet oddly satisfying smell of sulfur following the grand show; the feeling of coming together as a community. Independence Day really is a sensational celebration.
Visitors to the Pensacola Bay Area have several options when considering how to get in the spirit this Independence Day. Read below for the best places to watch fireworks, things to do, and more on America’s birthday in Pensacola.
