Destinations / North America

Pensacola has plenty to experience, even if you are on a tight budget.

For breakfast, head to Another Broken Egg Café, which serves seasonal and traditional dishes like the lobster and Brie omelet for $15 so you can start your day with a full belly.

The National Naval Aviation Museum is a great place to visit even if you aren’t a huge plane fan. The museum houses memorabilia from every era of aviation and includes some amazing exhibits like the Blue Angels 4-D experience, which shows you what a Blue Angels air show is like, up close and personal. The show costs $7 and is well worth it. Admission to the museum, open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., is free.

When you’re ready for lunch, head to the water where you can get a great meal at The Fish House. Try a traditional Po’Boy sandwich made with shrimp or oysters. Add a chilled glass of beer from Gulf Coast Brewery and enjoy your whole meal for around $16.

Hit the beach in the afternoon and find out why Pensacola is always a top spring break destination. The white sandy beaches are a great place to soak up some sun and the water helps quell the heat of the afternoon.

For dinner and late-night entertainment, head to Seville Quarter in the old Spanish settlement. The architecture of the brick buildings is similar to the French Quarter in New Orleans and housed within are eight separate rooms for dining, drinking, entertainment and dancing. Grab a seafood platter for $16 and fill up on energy for a night of fun. Admission for entertainment is $5 on the weekends and $3 on the weekdays (does not include food and drinks). The quarter is open nightly until 3 a.m.
