Things To Do In Pensacola

Of course, some of the most popular activities in Pensacola focus on the beach, and with good reason. Its Northwest Florida location affords plenty of picturesque stretches just made for a day of family fun. The area's Gulf Islands National Seashore is the longest protected section of seashore in the country, and ranger-led programs let kids learn about coastal ecology. You could also just spend a day by the shore in Pensacola Beach enjoying the views and collecting seashells -- the area's relaxed vibe makes it inviting to simply unwind.

Visiting the National Naval Aviation Museum is another of our favorite things to do in Pensacola. It's one of the world's largest museums dedicated to aviation and it's located on the Naval Air Station Pensacola. It features restored aircraft of all types along with artifacts charting the history of aviation for the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard. Plus, it's the home of the world-famous Blue Angels! If you visit from March through November, you can see them practice, usually on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

Learn about the area's history with a stroll through the Historic Pensacola Village. It's one of the most enjoyable activities in Pensacola, because not only do you get to discover 20 historical buildings, the T.T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum and Seville Square, you'll also find plenty of shops, galleries and restaurants!
