With a long history and a rich, diverse culture, the city of Pensacola, Florida, is a fantastic place to spend a day, a summer, or a lifetime. The first European settlement in the New World was in the Pensacola Bay Area, founded in 1559 by Don Tristan de Luna, a Spanish sailor. Throughout its history, the “City of Five Flags” has been governed by Spain, Britain, France, the U.S. Confederacy, and now the U.S. And the heart of this extraordinary city is its historic downtown. Since the city is more than four hundred and fifty years old, downtown Pensacola is full of historic sites. In fact, just a few blocks from the Bay, there are twenty-seven historic properties in the Pensacola National Register Historic District. Eleven of those Historic Pensacola Village properties are open to the public. Also in the Village is the Museum of Commerce, the Voices of Pensacola Multicultural Center, the Pensacola Children's Museum, and the original 1908 City Hall building which is now home to The T.T. Wentworth, Jr. Florida State Museum.
Additional downtown points of historic interest include the Julee Panton Cottage, the 1890 Lear-Rocheblave House, the 1871 Dorr House, and the 1805 Lavalle House. Downtown Pensacola is also rich with fabulous options for dining. You can find a wide variety of casual eateries, pubs, and food trucks, as well as elegant, white-tablecloth, fine-dining restaurants in downtown. Shopping is also abundant and includes a variety of unique and trendy shops along the beautiful Crepe Myrtle lined-streets. Palafox Street is the main strip in the neighborhood, and has been recognized as one of the “10 Great Streets in America.” Among the numerous places, you’ll want to explore in the area are SoGourmet, The Bodacious Olive, The Artisan, Bubba’s Sweet Spot, Indigeaux Denim Bar & Boutique, Belle Ame, and Sparkle Girl’s Boutique. And on Saturdays in Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza you’ll find the Saturday Palafox Market running eight o’clock a.m. until two o’clock p.m. with vendors selling handmade jewelry, crafts, food, and more.
