Picture Perfect Pensacola

Located on the west coast of the Florida Panhandle and close to the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola is a marvelous mishmash of Floridian style and old-school Southern charm. The city is quartered into four districts: North Hill, East Hill, Seville and Palafox, and each has its own distinct character. For those who want to soak up the year-round sunshine, there are some superb beaches and spectacular attractions for those travelling with their families. You’ll find a broad selection of hotels in Pensacola, ranging from quaint and rustic inns to luxurious and contemporary accommodation.

The Beaches

With its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, Pensacola enjoys subtropical weather, powder-soft sands and warm, clear seas. Its beaches are widely considered to be among the best in Florida and attract around 2 million visitors every year. If you’re visiting between March and April, be sure to book your Pensacola hotels well in advance, as students flood to the city on their spring break.

Recently voted as Florida’s Best Beach by readers of USA Today, Pensacola Beach is a mile-long ribbon of white sands lapped by emerald-green waters. It has two coasts, each offering a different beach experience. For restaurants, bars, water sports and an altogether livelier day out, the Gulf side is the one for you. Families and couples who want peace, tranquility and shallow waters favor the Santa Rosa Sound side, where there’s little to do except sit back and enjoy the sun.

If you’re wondering where to stay in Pensacola to make the most of the area’s natural beauty, consider booking a hotel near to Perdido Key. From the Spanish, this translates as ‘The Lost Island’. Hidden away on Florida’s western coast, it acts as a tranquil oasis for both visitors and wildlife. It’s a barrier island which offers excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities.

Gulf Islands National Seashore

If you’re visiting the Gulf Islands National Seashore, be sure to wear shades; not just for the sun but because the sands here are dazzlingly white. This is due to the powdered quartz that makes up almost 95 per cent of the sand you sit on. Offering fabulous views of the Gulf, the National Seashore boasts a vibrant ecosystem, replete with dolphins, rays and sea turtles, making it an ideal spot for wildlife lovers.

Family Attractions

If you’re staying at hotels in Pensacola with children, the chances are that they’ll need some entertaining. Beyond the fantastic beaches, there are some theme parks nearby, which make for a fun family day out.

Perfect for younger children, Fast Eddie’s Fun Center offers four go-kart tracks for drivers of all ages. Little racers can enjoy some age-appropriate thrills on the Junior Racers track or ride beside an adult on one of the larger tracks. For racers over the age of 16, there’s the chance to prove your skills on the Fast Eddie’s Superfast Speedway.

Little more than a 10-minute drive from most Pensacola hotels, Sam’s Fun City & Surf City is where water meets theme park. With a lazer tag arena that covers nearly 500 square feet, an 18-hole miniature golf course, and more than 50 arcade games, there’s plenty for those who want to remain dry. However, if you want to cool off from the sun and enjoy some fun at the same time, the water park is for you. With more than 20 slides, along with a 1,200-foot Lazy River, the whole family can get involved.

Eating Out

If you don’t want to dine in at Pensacola hotels, you’ve got plenty of dining choices in town. Be sure to pay a visit to Jerry’s Drive-In, which is a popular hangout with the locals and serves humongous burgers.

Couples who want to enjoy a romantic meal together should head towards Pensacola Bay and hunt out Restaurant Iron, which offers traditional Southern food served with a modern twist.
