pensacola, one of two

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

We recently went to visit Pensacola, Florida. Pensacola is a little town that manages to stay very easy going and low key but boasts beautiful white sugar sand beaches and teal water. It is the cradle of Naval Aviation and we've spent a lot of time there because of this. I'm not going to lie, there are some areas where you can tell Pensacola really needs some revitalizing but they certainly do a great job of keeping the little historic area beautiful. The town center is relaxed and fun to walk around. The official "Historic Pensacola Village" is a collection of twenty-seven properties, eleven of which are open for tours. The town boasts of original settlement in 1559 with the official founding in 1698.

While you are there, do not miss dinner at Jackson's. The property's renovation has been featured on HGTV and the food in the NY Times. We love this restaurant; it has many happy memories for us.
