        WHY CHOOSE PENSACOLA?                            

I think you will agree once you stay here that it's the perfect choice. Snow Birds and families enjoy the mild weather, perfect temperatures, and beautiful surroundings. Other draws are big city culture, quaint towns, history,sparkling deserted beaches, fascinating parks and museums, and terrific food. Turquoise clear waters and sugar white sands are reason enough. Being close to Alabama's posh Gulf coast and Mobile as well as Pensacola downtown gives you a diversity of things to do unparalled in other vacation areas. A huge benefit is that this area is not "touristy" and prices on everything are reasonable and affordable. Did we mention Dolphin watching?!
