The Pensacola center is about the area of Sacred Heart Medical Center and the area of Cordova Ambulatory Surgical.

Nicknamed “the Upside of Florida” due to its westernmost location on the Florida Panhandle, Pensacola is a top tourist destination offering some of the world's whitest beaches. Whether you're looking for waterfront accommodations or something closer to the heart of the city, Pensacola boasts a variety of hotels to meet your needs and budget.

A lively seaport on Pensacola Bay, Pensacola is protected by the Santa Rosa barrier island. The region was originally inhabited by the Muskogean tribe, although the Pensacola and Creek people lived there during the first European contact. Spanish explorations led to a short-lived settlement here in 1559, but the city didn't start to develop until the late 1600s.

Today, Pensacola is home to numerous landmarks, historic tours, annual festivals, museums, and parks, all of which make it a great city to visit. Whatever your reason for planning a trip to Pensacola, it's important that you book the right hotel that allows you to experience everything this wonderful city has to offer. More from this guide...

When to Visit Pensacola, FL

Pensacola is a great destination year-round, but peak tourist season hits during the summer. Beginning in the middle of April and lasting through the end of August, hotel rates tend to go up as travelers start to crowd in. Hitting the summer season early or late can help you avoid crowds and pricey accommodations. If you do come in the middle of summer, however, you won't be disappointed.

Fall is often considered the best time to explore Pensacola. The crowds have died down and hotel rates are among some of the year's best, but the weather is perfect for outdoor excursions. October and November are the perfect months to go biking, kayaking, and hiking around the Pensacola Bay. You also won't encounter the stifling heat and humidity that you normally experience during the summer.

Winters are mild with temperatures averaging around 50 degrees. Rain is common during the winter, which tends to keep travelers away. During the winter months, it's usually too chilly to go to the beach, and it's not unusual for the city to experience a frost. Many winter days can actually be quite warm, so don't let that deter you.

Spring is similar to fall in that it's warm and dry, but tropical showers are common. These storms aren't as violent as summer storms, though, but you should expect plenty of rainfall. Hotel rates tend to be decent this time of year, so don't be afraid to plan your trip in March or early April.
