Downtown Pensacola

Pensacola’s historic downtown offers an every growing variety of restaurants, music venues, bars, art galleries, and events. The newly revitalized area has become an entertainment hub, drawing favorable comparisons to the entertainment districts in larger cities while still maintaining an everybody-knows-your-name feel. Neighborhoods close to downtown include East Hill and North Hill.

Gulf Breeze

Gulf Breeze is located between Pensacola and Pensacola Beach, separated from both by bridges. The city stretches along Highway 98 with miles of wooded waterfront, a wide variety of neighborhoods and subdivisions, shopping, and dining. Gulf Breeze has all the convenience of being close to the city, but offers a more secluded atmosphere for those looking for an everyday getaway.

Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is known for its sugar white sands and emerald waters. And while it’s true that there’s no better beach in the world for sunning and swimming the day away, the island is also home to fine dining, great casual dining, entertainment, spas, fishing, surfing and more. Our skyline has grown up along the dunes, but Pensacola Beach still has the feel of old Florida.

Fort Walton Beach

Resort town living, all year long. With beautiful beaches, plenty of parks, and family friendly-fun, Fort Walton Beach has the feel of old Florida. A small city with a lively arts community, Fort Walton offers everything from new condos to quiet, mid-century neighborhoods to waterfront mansions. Its popularity as a vacation destination means plenty of world-class dining and shopping nearby.
