Visiting Pensacola & the Florida Panhandle
You'll be in for full days of adventure and exploration this winter in Florida’s panhandle region. No winter coats, gloves or scarves will be needed when you tour cities like Pensacola, Madison, and Tallahassee. This winter, you’ll also find an impressive slate of events, festivals, and concerts lined up in the Panhandle. Plan your visit soon.
Set a course for Destin and be sure to check out the always-buzzing Henderson Beach State Park. While people in other parts of the country are doing there best not freeze, you can bask in the sunshine at this very family-friendly beach. The drive in from nearby Fort Walton Beach will be quick.
Don’t miss one of the premier fall events in Destin this year. Head for the Regatta Bay Yacht Club on November 17th for the 4th Annual Bourbon at the Bay, and experience a wide range of excellent bourbon and whiskey samples. All the sipping starts at 5:30 p.m.
Closer to the holidays in Destin, you can experience a true treat for the senses. Visit Destin’s Historic Harbor on December 11th for the 30th Annual Holiday on the Harbor Lighted Boat Parade. See an array of vessels slowly glide through the water, each uniquely lit with holiday lights.
Any visit to the Florida panhandle should include an extended stay in Pensacola. Along with top attractions like the National Naval Aviation Museum, Clara Barkley Dorr House, and the Pensacola Bayfront Stadium, you’ll find exceptional schedules events too.
On December 2nd your visit to Pensacola will be a laugh out loud, knee-slapping event. The iconic stand-up comedian Paula Poundstone will be performing live at the Saenger Theatre starting at 8 p.m. In early 2017, the unrivaled Kathleen Madigan will also be performing her stand-up comedy at the same Saenger Theatre on January 26th.
