Pensacola is a mid-sized city that has a strong historical past, a rich cultural heritage, and an economic future that benefits its neighbor, Gulf Breeze, just three easy miles over the Pensacola Bay Bridge. Although Native American’s called this region home, Don Tristan de Luna’s landing in 1559 began the “City of Five Flags’” destiny. Its history, deep southern roots and ethnic diversity enhances the cultural expression available in local art galleries, theatre, dance and symphony productions, outdoor concerts and many annual festivals. Pensacola is also a great destination for the sports enthusiast whether an active athlete or spectator. Pensacola is the largest municipality in Escambia County and through the efforts of Vision 2015 it is on the verge of renewed economic growth. Pensacola’s largest business sectors are military, medical facilities, educational institutions, banking and tourism. It is home to Pensacola International Airport, Pensacola Naval Air Station, the University of West Florida, Pensacola State College, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (Class AA baseball team) and the Port of Pensacola. Escambia County has two beach communities: Pensacola Beach and Perdido. Perdido is on the western side of Pensacola. It is a beautiful Gulf-front destination, a quiet getaway on the Alabama border.
