Pensacola/Pensacola Beach, FL has been named one the South's Best Beach Towns of 2022 by Southern Living Magazine. Topping the list at #8, Pensacola & Pensacola Beach offers the ultimate vacation along the Gulf of Mexico with sunshine and clear, emerald waters to create the most relaxing beach days and exciting excursions and historic explorations throughout the city when you're looking for an adventure. 

Nestled on the westernmost edge of Florida near Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Pensacola features the characteristic blue waters and powdery sands of the Gulf, but it is unique in having an historic side to explore when you're seeking a break from the beach. Established in 1559 by Spanish explorers, the town is recognized as the country's first settlement. The popular Pensacola Beach Pier is one of the longest in the Gulf of Mexico, and nearby Gulf Islands National Seashore (the longest stretch of protected seashore in the United States) is an ideal spot for biking, snorkeling, and kayaking.
