Pensacola

— 6 nights

Western Gate to the Sunshine State

Surrounded on three sides by water, Pensacola offers access to white-sand beaches and emerald-green ocean unspoiled by large resorts.
Get out of town with these interesting Pensacola side-trips: Fort Pickens Area (in Pensacola Beach), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Fort Walton Beach) and Navarre Beach (in Navarre). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at National Naval Aviation Museum, stroll through Pensacola Beach, explore the galleries of Pensacola Lighthouse & Maritime Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Gulf Islands National Seashore.

For ratings, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Pensacola itinerary planner.

The Emerald Coast
Stretching over 322 km (200 mi) of beautiful coastline along the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Panhandle encompasses an area of pristine white-sand beaches and turquoise waters, earning it the nickname the Emerald Coast. Distinguished from the rest of the Sunshine State by its laid-back southern influence, the region remains a popular tropical holiday destination for those looking to avoid the larger vacation hubs of Miami and Orlando. Explore the beachfront shops and fresh-caught seafood cafes of the region's fishing villages, or head to the bigger seaside communities of Pensacola and Panama City for a wide selection of retail and entertainment options, including some of the coast's most active nightlife.
