Geocaching in Pensacola

The Pensacola Bay Area has been loved by explorers since 1559. Now you, too, can embark on your adventure and discover our destination visiting many geocaches in the Pensacola Bay Area. Using a GPS-enabled device, instead of a compass, you can become a modern-day Ponce de Leon in search of hidden treasure.

While visiting, make sure to stop by and visit Penny's Travel Bug Hotels. Penny is a butterfly named after the Monarch Butterfly that is special in America. Their wings are a most vivid tawny-orange and a beautiful contrasting deep black vein. Instinct directs their destination to Pensacola's way station treasure providing nourishing rest along white sugar-white sand beaches and emerald waters. This American city is proud of her heritage, the City of Five Flags is how she is known; providing a tie that binds our hospitality to those that roam. Penny's Travel Bug Hotels is a place where caching travel bugs can stay safely within the confines of her cocoon. 

Penny has three travel bug hotels located at each of the visitor centers.
