Arriving in Pensacola Beach
Pensacola International Airport is the major airport along Florida's Gulf Coast. While many spring-breakers catch their connections here, your vacation begins with the warm salty air as you step off the airplane. While Pensacola International Airport is a major hub, you will find it simply laid out and easy to navigate.
Nestled between two major interstates and a glorious coastal highway, driving from Pensacola Airport is a breeze. Most Pensacola Beach condo rentals can be reached by car within fifteen minutes. Many car rental companies offer convertibles to enhance your beach vacation experience, as well as full-size cars and SUVs to accommodate the whole family. Or if you choose to let someone else do the driving, taxi and shuttle service is also available directly from the airport to your vacation home.
As is evident from the thick tropical foliage spilling from gardens throughout Pensacola, this area is considered subtropical. If your vacation focuses on water sports, then book your Pensacola Beach vacation home for late spring and summer. Temperatures range from 80°F in March up to 95°F in the summer peak of July. Though precipitation is usually at its highest in summer months, storms typically breeze through quickly, leaving you with the glorious Florida sunshine at your Pensacola Beach vacation rental.
Outdoor recreation, such as hiking, biking or golfing, are naturally more enjoyable when you book in late autumn or in the mild winter months, where temperatures can dip down. No matter what time of year you book, Pensacola Beach condo rentals are surrounded by lush green parks, tropical flowers and of course, spectacular emerald water.
Hitting the Water
By far the biggest attraction in the area are the beaches. More than a beach, this is a barrier island, which means the shallow waters are warm and crystal clear. You can step right out of your Pensacola Beach condo and into the sugary sands of the Gulf of Mexico. As a part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore, this stretch of sand is protected on both sides, which means its beaches are some of the best in the United States. Beach chair and umbrella service is widely available along the beachfront.
Once you've done your sunbathing, you might want to put on your fins and try snorkeling. The calm waters make this the ideal place for seeing fish in their own territory. At Pensacola Beach's Park East, you will find a line of artificial reefs teeming with wildlife. If you have your scuba certification, you can take a scuba trip to the Oriskany Reef, which is a sunken aircraft carrier 20 miles off shore. Also of interest to divers is the Blackwater Bridge Rubble site or the USS Massachusetts. The clear water of the Gulf makes this an ideal place for underwater adventures.
Cultural highlights in Pensacola
Not only is the landscape lush, but the history is as well. From the multicultural 'Voices of Pensacola' museum to the Museum of Commerce, you can get a feel for the generations that have shaped the Pensacola area.
In addition to putting Pensacola in a historical context, you can find many galleries showing off the work of local artists. From watercolors to wood carvings, you are sure to find something that captures the spirit of the Pensacola Beach area.
Perhaps the most impressive museum is the National Naval Aviation Museum, the largest of its kind in the world. In this museum, the whole family can admire a wide variety of restored aircraft, flight simulators, a 3D flight show, or a real-life Blue Angels practice.
For the kids
Take the kids for a ride in a flight simulator at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Or you can take a drive down the coast to the Gulf Breeze Zoo, where they can get to know the giraffes personally. The zoo boasts an elevated boardwalk, safari train ride, question and answer sessions with zookeepers, as well as behind the scenes tours. If history is on the books, take the kids to the Pensacola Children's Museum, where they can be introduced to Pensacola history in a hands-on, playful way.
Pensacola Beach vacation homes are the place to inspire, enrich and bring together family members of all ages on your own adventure in Pensacola.
