Pensacola, Fla. (August 2, 2017) – Candlelit dinner on the waterfront. Hot-stone massages while listening to the waves crash. Sunset dolphin cruises. Need we go on? It’s no wonder why Trip Advisor named Pensacola to the 15 best honeymoon destinations in the US according to TripAdvisor reviewers. With an average of 224 days of sunshine, sugar-white sand and emerald green water, Pensacola is the perfect place for a romantic getaway anytime of year.

Celebrate newlywed bliss with leisurely sunset strolls along the Gulf of Mexico. If you get hungry, enjoy one of the many area waterfront restaurants. Don’t feel like cooking? Opt for dine-in delivery or a chef-to-you program. You can enjoy dinner on your balcony without even lifting a finger or a foot!

For those looking to venture out of the room, catch a bird’s eye view while parasailing over the Santa Rosa Sound or paddle board around Perdido Key.  If you prefer your feet on land, climb 177 steps up the historic Pensacola Lighthouse. Built in 1859, the lighthouse offers stunning views of Pensacola Pass, three historic forts, the Pensacola skyline and the historic Navy Yard.

If you’re looking for a little culture, grab a cocktail at one of the thriving bars in downtown Pensacola and check out the boutiques of Palafox Street. Bonus points if you choose to honeymoon on the last Friday of the month. Gallery night swoops in and transforms downtown into a whole block party!

Whether you’re looking to simply relax on the beach or hit the town, Pensacola is your one-stop destination for the perfect honeymoon. For more information on honeymooning in the Pensacola Bay area, visit
