East Pensacola

Local Eats, Arts and Parks Rule


Eat gourmet pizza in the basement of a converted early-20th-century hospital, shop for upscale home décor, get a burger at some of the city’s oldest diners or check out the water view from a boardwalk high on the bluffs – it’s all just minutes from historic Downtown Pensacola and beaches in East Pensacola. Hugging the shorelines on both sides of Bayou Texar, you'll find a walkable mix of tropical bungalows, locally-owned shops and parks every few blocks.

East Hill, Old East Hill and East Pensacola Heights are some of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. In fact, Don Tristan de Luna’s 1559 settlement is found along the waterfront in this area, establishing Pensacola as America’s First Settlement. 

History, parks, eats and arts—it’s the way East Pensacola lives every day. Sit down with the locals and see why these neighborhoods are a big part of what makes Pensacola a great place to visit.
