Snuggled between the pristine beaches of Perdido Key and historic downtown Pensacola sits a favorite, the western pocket of Pensacola.
Just a heads up: you may hear a distinctive noise in the air – a roar, a thunder that encompasses your whole body and exemplifies the sound of freedom. It’s the Blue Angels, the U.S. Navy’s precision flight demonstration team, streaking across the skies overhead. Take every opportunity to catch a show or mid-week practice. You won't regret it.
Beyond the Blues, west Pensacola delivers a full sensory experience you won’t soon forget. Let your inner child roam free, and your children, too, in the National Naval Aviation Museum, one of the world's largest air and aerospace museums. Get a few heebie-jeebies during a guided tour of the haunted Pensacola Lighthouse, or simply climb the 177-step spiral staircase to catch breathtaking views. Peer inside one of the many antique shops along Navy Boulevard. Follow the distinct aroma of candy making to Remember When Sweet Shop and J.W. Renfroe Pecans.
From the roars of jets to stunning coastal views, hands-on experiences to delightful delectables, Pensacola's western neighborhood offers you endless character and adventure.
