“People come from all over to come to this pub. It's sprawling and has a famous food and drink menu. If you want an experience, definitely check out McGuire's! If you weren't Irish going in there, you certainly will be coming out!”

Museum
“Kids of all ages who are fascinated with aviation must visit this amazing museum. What began as one man’s vision to educate young aviators and endow them with a deeper appreciation of their heritage has evolved over the years into a steadily growing and expanding institution of national significance and of major economic importance to Pensacola. The Museum is now considered the leading tourist attraction between Orlando and New Orleans and one of the top ten attractions in Florida, making Pensacola an ever more popular destination for out-of-town visitors. Through dynamic exhibits, educational initiatives, publications and research, the Museum has far surpassed the concept that fostered it. The National Naval Aviation Museum is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., year-round, with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year’s days.”

Aquarium
“We have visited here two times. It is walking distance or 3 minute ride down the road on Front Beach (near the high rise). Go swim with the dolphins, they have a dolphin experience its well worth the money. SO FUN. They also have a dolphin show as well, a gift store and all kinds of exhibits with fish, turtles, sharks etc. A nice place to visit with free parking”
