Downtown Pensacola

Plenty of Fun for Pensacola Visitors

Known as the City of Five Flags, Pensacola promises a plethora of things for visitors to see and do all year round. Here are a few of our favorite ways to enjoy the perfect Pensacola experience.

Catch a game.

Pensacola may not be home to an MLB team, but that doesn’t mean spring and summer visitors can enjoy America’s Favorite Pastime. Pensacola Bayfront Stadium is home to the Pensacola Blue Wahoos – an MiLB Southern League baseball team. Check the schedule during your visit – the Minor League Baseball Season usually goes from April through August.

Prepare for take-off.

Battleships at Pensacola Naval Air Station.

Featuring over 150 aircraft, the National Naval Aviation Museum is one of the most popular museums in Florida. With over 350,000 square feet of exhibit space across 37 acres, its features include the IMAX Naval Aviation Memorial Theatre, numerous flight simulators, a virtual flight deck, cockpit trainers, and the “Kiddie Hawk” play area.

Check the schedule to find out when you can be a part of US Navy Blue Angels practice and autograph sessions.

See the light.

Opened in 1859 and still in use today, the Pensacola Light stands 191 feet tall and can be seen for 27 miles in all directions. Tour the lighthouse and the adjacent Carriage House, which serves as a museum, gift shop, and visitor center.

Peer back in time.

The Historic Pensacola Village district is a collection of nearly 30 historic buildings, museums, galleries, and more. Explore period-preserved, furnished houses before traveling through time along the Colonial Archaeological Trail – it’s a giant outdoor museum.

Hit the beach.

The beaches in the Pensacola are known far and wide for their sugar-soft white sand, and there are many from which to choose. Pensacola Beach has been named one of the top 25 best beaches in the US, while Gulf Islands National Seashore has ranked as #3 in the nation, and among the top 25 beaches on Earth.

Reel in a big catch.

Spend a day on the white sands of a Pensacola-area beach.

There are plenty of places for anglers to cast out, and Pensacola Beach Fishing Pier is arguably the best. There, you’ll have the chance to snag everything from Spanish mackerel to Pompano, Mahi Mahi, Flounder, Tarpon, and Bonito.

Don’t feel like fishing? The pier is also great for bird watching. Stroll the pier for glimpses of gannets, gulls, ducks, loons, herons, cormorants and more.

Try some seafood.

Where better to find some of the freshest seafood available than right on the Gulf shore? Of course, there are countless seafood restaurants in Pensacola, but locals direct visitors to longstanding staples like Grand Marlin and Crabs – We got Em.
