Pensacola

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.
Attractions like National Naval Aviation Museum and Okaloosa Island make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Navarre Beach in Navarre (about 42 minutes away). There's still lots to do: stroll through Pensacola Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Gulf Islands National Seashore, and look for gifts at Joe Patti's Seafood Company.
