Welcome to Pensacola

Pensacola is the westernmost city in the Florida Panhandle and the 1559 site of the first Spanish settlement in what later became the continental United States. Colonial Pensacola was the capital of British West Florida, and Fort George saw the longest siege of the American Revolution. Historic Pensacola Village and the harbor district are easy to tour on foot or by Segway scooter. Pensacola Bay and its tributary rivers offer great inshore fishing. The warm turquoise Gulf of Mexico waters along Gulf Islands National Seashore are perfect for dolphin watching, and the long white-sand beach invites visitors to learn how to surf the gentle Gulf waves or paddle a kayak on the calm inshore waters.
