Pensacola Beach Named One of Top Five U.S. Beaches By TripAdvisor
In February the world's largest travel site, TripAdvisor, listed Pensacola Beach as one of the top 5 beaches in the country. The award winners are selected based on data collected by TripAdvisor over the course of 12 months. This data looks at the popularity of beaches within the U.S. by studying the quality and quantity of reviews on their site from that beach.
This isn't the first time that Pensacola Beach has been nationally recognized. In 2018, Pensacola Beach won Florida's Best Beach, an award given by USA Today. This is also an award that Pensacola Beach has won twice. In addition, Pensacola's own Gulf Islands National Seashore has also been ranked as one of Florida's top attractions.
“Life’s a Beach” all right on Pensacola Beach where building sandcastles, body surfing and beachcombing are popular pastimes. Locals and visitors also enjoy deep-sea fishing and other water activities like sailing, kayaking, diving and snorkeling. The secret is out, but Northwest Florida has been a haven for scuba divers and snorkelers for decades. The pristine Gulf waters around Pensacola are home to dozens of ghostly shipwrecks—teeming with sea life and begging to be explored by scuba divers.
Away from the sands, there are several don’t miss sights for the entire family. Some of these sightseeing attractions include the National Aviation Museum, which features 150 vintage aircraft, flight simulators and an IMAX Theatre, Fort Pickens, a historic military fort built in 1829, and the Pensacola Lighthouse, the oldest lighthouse on the Gulf Coast and also the tallest, standing 151 feet tall on a 40 foot bluff.
The Blue Angels are Pensacola's beloved demonstration flight squadron, putting on two airshows each year and drawing in huge crowds. The Blue Angels put on shows all over the country and surprise beachgoers with their popular Sunday flyovers and weekday practices.
To immerse yourself in the history of Pensacola, stroll the historic village, a pedestrian-friendly area with furnished historic homes, unique museums and the Colonial Archeological Trail.
For the white dimpled ball set, try teeing up at Lost Key Golf Club, a target golf set up designed by Arnold Palmer and Marcus Pointe Golf club, an Earl Stone design.
