Trip Planner USA  /  Florida  /  Florida Panhandle  /  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. Located at the western tip of the Florida Panhandle, this city of about 50,000 draws ocean-lovers with prime fishing and boating in an area protected as a National Seashore. The downtown and surrounding areas feature historical buildings, seafood restaurants, and congenial pubs. Museums in and around town detail the region's rich naval history. Pensacola is in Florida Panhandle. Plan your holiday in Pensacola and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our United States holiday planner.

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
