Getting Here

Pensacola visitors often tell us, “Getting here was easy. Leaving is so hard.” We couldn’t agree more. It’s always hard to say goodbye to new friends, but we love helping them find us.

Here are some tips to make getting to Pensacola even easier!

By Car:

From the north:

Take I-65 south through Alabama. After the Greenville exit, take Exit 69 to Pensacola. Turn left onto Hwy. 113, a four-lane expressway, and follow for 13 miles. When it dead-ends, turn right for a mile to Hwy. 29. Turn left onto Hwy. 29 south and drive for 45 minutes until you reach Pensacola.

From the East or West:

Take I-10 and choose from one of several Pensacola exits. For the beach, take the I-110 exit south, and watch for the signs that say "beaches" or "downtown."

Pensacola Beach Toll Information

Get in the fast lane with Sun Pass® or Toll-by-Plate when using the Bob Sikes Bridge Toll Plaza to Pensacola Beach. You can use your SunPass or Toll-by-Plate in ALL FOUR LANES of the toll plaza, even the cash lanes. Simply drive through without stopping.

With SunPass, the $1 toll will automatically be deducted from your prepaid account. No need to stop and pay $1 in cash.

Don’t want to use SunPass? You can drive through the toll plaza without stopping and receive a bill in the mail through the Toll-by-Plate system. The toll will still be $1 each time you pass through the toll plaza, plus a once a month $2.50 administrative fee. No matter the number of trips you take to the beach, you will only be charged the administration fee once per month of use.
