Pensacola’s panhandle location puts it on the Gulf of Mexico side of Florida, and millions of people flock there each year. The city in Escambia County is one of the major tourist destinations in the Sunshine State, and you are about to experience everything you can make time for. To help you plan out that itinerary, check out these top four attractions in Pensacola FL.
Blue Wahoos Ballpark is one place of interest that sounds like fun, especially if you are visiting during baseball season. The ballpark is on West Cedar Street, and it is home to a minor league team for the Cincinnati Reds. It is said to be a beautiful stadium, and it has quite a cool name, too. Minor League games are always cheap to attend, and the food, brews and whatever you want should be cheap, too.
Santa Rosa Island is also a top spot to visit, and there you will find some of the best beaches. If you are looking for somewhere to stay, you can book at The Portofino Resort. There are also said to be plenty of bars and restaurants, as well as tourist activities, too. It would be fun to make your way to Santa Rosa Island and see part of Pensacola that not everyone gets to enjoy.
The Naval Live Oaks Reservation is another popular place of interest in Pensacola, and there are hiking trails, the beach, a picnic area and also free kayaking available. Maybe you could go kayaking, take a romantic walk with your partner and enjoy a nice picnic. Reviews say that the trails are easy, and so that walk can indeed be a romantic one and not a difficult hike.
Sam’s Fun City is on Pensacola Boulevard, and it features go-karts, laser tag, bumper boats, a ferris wheel and then some. It is basically a small amusement park, and reviews say it is quite fun. If you have kids with you on vacation, this is one of the places to go for sure.
