The Historic Pensacola Village is a more than 8-acre complex encompassing nearly 30 properties (11 of which are open to the public). This district, which appears on the National Register of Historic Places, includes properties like the Lavalle House, the Lear-Rocheblave House, the Dorr House and Old Christ Church, which visitors can experience with a costumed tour guide. It also contains must-sees, such as the Wentworth Museum and the Voices of Pensacola multicultural center. 

Travelers almost can't believe how much they learned about the city's fascinating history after visiting the Historic Pensacola Village. Many highly recommend taking advantage of the guided tour, since they say it offers a richer experience and the opportunity to see additional historic homes. 

You'll find the complex downtown; ample parking is available around Church Street. Admission tickets can be purchased at the Pensacola Children's Museum, the Wentworth Museum, the Tivoli High House and the Voices of Pensacola museum. Adult admission costs $8. For children ages 3 through 14 the ticket price is $4. The complex is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Guided tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Guided tours are included in admission to Historic Pensacola. Tours last approximately one to one-and-a-half hours. For more information, visit Historic Pensacola's website.

#1 Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach outlines the Santa Rosa barrier island and offers visitors two very different beach experiences. On the Gulf side, visitors are treated to unparalleled Gulf Coast views, as well as a powdery white shoreline and emerald waters. The soft sands that ribbon the Santa Rosa Sound side of the island are popular among families since they offer gentle waves and access to a boardwalk filled with fun shops and restaurants.
