The Western-most city in the Florida Panhandle has had an interesting and colorful history that makes it well worth checking out. Currently playing home to some 52,000 people, the city has a number of nicknames, one of which is the “City of Five Flags,” owing to the fact that in its history, it has been ruled over by five different nations: Spain (back when it was the nation of Castile), France, Great Britain, the United States, and the Confederate States of America.
We have created a short list of some things for you to do while here to get the most out of your RV rental Pensacola FL. Come and enjoy RV rentals Pensacola Beach Florida!
There’s a lot more to see and do in Pensacola than the city’s smallish size might first suggest. Here are a few of the more interesting examples.
No trip to Pensacola would be complete without checking out the Aviation Museum. It’s simply one of the best, if not the best in the nation. Also, did you know that Pensacola is the home of the Blue Angels flight demonstration team? It certainly is, and so much the better if you get an opportunity to see them in action.
The entire Panhandle region of Florida is known for its white, sandy beaches, but nowhere is that more true than Santa Rosa Island. It’s simply the best of the best. It’s a fantastic mix of development and preservation with beautiful ocean views, and plenty of good food and music to keep you coming back year after year. Santa Rosa Island is perfect for RV rentals Pensacola Beach!
If you’re looking for something a bit more refined, then you owe it to yourself to check out the Saenger Theatre. It first opened its doors in 1925, and to this day, bears stamps of the opulence that was the Roaring Twenties. Simply a stunning venue that you won’t want to miss.
There are a number of excellent campgrounds in the area, though note that the nightly rates here are somewhat higher than in other regions. Here are some great campgrounds for your RV rental near Pensacola FL!
We’re putting emphasis on the word ’Resort’ here. Prices range from $65 to $125 a night, but the park is magnificent. It’s open year-round, is pet friendly, features free Wi-Fi, hookups, all 72 sites are paved and have room for slideouts, Recreationally, you’ve got the Santa Rosa Sound, a swimming pool, Recreational hall, shuffleboard and other outdoor games, and of course all the usual amenities you’d expect at a place such as this (sparkling restrooms and showers, a laundry facility and an ice machine). It’s even pet friendly, so bring your best four-legged friend in your camper trailer rental Pensacola FL.
If you’re a bit more budget conscious, this is a great place to stay, with spaces starting at just $36 a night. True, you lose the fabulous views of the sound, as mentioned above, but you get most everything else. Pet friendly, a rec. hall and pond, horseshoes, laundry facility, showers and clean restrooms, ice machine and even cable hookups if you want them. Pensacola RV Park is the perfect place for your motorhome rental Pensacola!
Finally, if you want to get a bit farther off the beaten track, check out the national park. With more than 200 sites available, there’s almost always plenty of room. Sure, it lacks some of the amenities of the other places we’ve talked about (you only get water and electrical hookups, for example), but if you don’t mind giving up a few niceties, then this is a perfectly fine location. Check out Fort Pickens in your travel trailer rental Pensacola Florida!
In January, you can come here to frolic in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Mind you, in January, the waters will still be cold, but not as cold as places farther north. If you’re not feeling brave enough to try it yourself, you can have a great time sipping on a drink and taking pictures of others as they (literally) take the plunge.
If you love fine wine and art, then plan on being in the area in March for this fantastic festival. Local artists and craftsmen will be on hand to help add a splash of flair to the sparkling vintages being consumed. A family friendly, fun time for all, especially in a camper rental Pensacola!
