Pensacola is at the Panhandle's furthest western tip, close to Alabma's Gulf Shores. Between Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key are some of the Panhandle's most beautiful beaches, just as soft and white as the rest of the Panhandle. Families can enjoy the soft sand and gentle surf all day, or explore the area's historic sites and get active on bikes, in kayaks, on paddleboards and in boats.

Pensacola is home to the Blue Angels and the Air Force, and often, kids can catch Blue Angel flyovers and events throughout the year. The National Naval Aviation Museum and Fort Pickens, located on Santa Rosa Island, can entertain history lovers, while young kids may like spending a day at the zoo or in the Panhandle Butterfly House. There is a little something for everyone in Pensacola!
