Sightseeing
The following recommendations are places that are a short drive from the Cottage at Navy Point.
This is a must do while visiting Pensacola. There is lots of history and an IMAX theatre. We recommend spending the day there. If you are going to see the Blue Angel practice show, the main viewing area is right behind the museum. Keep in mind, the old historic lighthouse is next door.

This is a very popular spot on Pensacola Beach. There are lifeguards during the season. One can fish or just walk out on the pier and soak in all the sites. Look for the parking lot under the beach ball water tower. It is a lovely 26 minute, 14 mile drive over Pensacola Bay and through Gulf Breeze. That drive can be quite a bit longer during the summer months. Leave early in the summer months.

Perdido Key's natural beauty and Gulf front setting is very similar to Pensacola Beach. The vibe is a little more laid back. It's not as crowded as Pensacola Beach. It is 10 miles and 19 minutes away.

The Blue Angels practice shows take place at NAS Pensacola from March through November and can be seen from anywhere in Navy Point. A great spot would be down the walking path to Kalash and Baublits Drive. Look online for the practice schedule.

A fun event for music lovers is Blues on the Bay at the Community Maritime Park at the Hunter Amphitheater. This occurs on select Sunday evenings (when the Blue Wahoo baseball team is away) beginning at 6:00 PM and is free to the public. There is always a nice southern breeze coming off the bay.

At the south end of Palafox Street, there is a circular drive and parking area encompassing Plaza de luna with outdoor seating area to enjoy the yachts, views of Pensacola Bay, and gorgeous sunsets. This area is free to the public and a parking spot can always be found. Jaco's restaraunt is steps away and provides amazing sunset views. This is also a five mile drive to the downtown area.

The Navy Point subdivision is very unique. It was designed by an Atlanta landscape architect for military housing during WWII. He designed it so that everyone could enjoy the water. The streets and the adjoining walking/biking trail wind along the water. All the houses are built on the other side so as not to block the view and enjoyment. There is no other place like it in Pensacola.

Between Navy Point and downtown is this relaxing place that you don't need to dress up for. The food is good, but the atmosphere is great and quintessential Pensacola. Sit outside with an umbrella protecting your group from the hot sun and enjoy the pelicans and passing boats. Our favorite time to visit is in the early evening to watch the sun go down. Your bill will be quite reasonable for food and or drinks.

Right up the street from Navy Point next to the Greer's Grocery Store at 4051 Barrancas Avenue. We haven't had a chance to check this place out, but they serve healthy food for those guests searching for it.
