Not One, But Two Nominations!


Not one nomination, but two, what a terrible problem to have! Pensacola Beach and the Gulf Islands National Seashore have both been nominated for USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice 2018 Best Florida Beach and now it’s up to you to choose.

Boasting 8 miles of sugar-white sand and emerald green water, Pensacola Beach is backed by a boardwalk filled with cozy boutiques and restaurants that serve delicious gulf-catch seafood. Beachgoers enjoy the clear, warm waters and gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico, perfect for swimming, paddling and snorkeling, along with a relaxed Old Florida feel.

Undulating with the Panhandle’s patent dunes of talcum sands, the Gulf Islands National Seashore continuum of platinum sandscape feels otherworldly and primitive. It stretches from Perdido Key on the state’s westernmost waterfront and continues at Pensacola Beach’s Fort Pickens National Park and the Santa Rosa Area – the most secluded. 

There you have it, now which one will it be? We know it’s tough, but we think you’ll make the right decision after helping us win USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice 2018 Best Florida Attraction. Vote below, vote daily and vote on different devices. We’re in this to win it, you know.
