I’m originally from Chicago, so being a city person I always feel drawn towards downtown Pensacola. There’s always something going on, always hustle and bustle. Always lively. It’s always nice to simply even go on walks, you get beautiful views of the water and parks....More

Pensacola has done an exceptional job of restoring their downtown area. A nice place to walk, eat, shop or people watch.

Lots of good restaurants in the downtown area. Great little Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Even though Pensacola is known for tearing down historic buildings to make parking lots, there is never enough parking so be prepared to walk a lot.
