Things to Do in Pensacola

Located in northwest Pensacola, less than 30 minutes away from the famous attractions of Pensacola Beach, the Inspire Pensacola apartments are a great place to see the best of what life in the Florida panhandle has to offer.

Get Some Air

The National Naval Aviation Museum is one of the city's highlights. Here, you can experience a breathtaking virtual reality recreation of the Apollo 11 moon landing or climb into a highly realistic flight simulator. In addition, the stunt pilots of the Blue Angels perform here regularly, putting on shows that thrill kids and adults alike.

Visit the Zoo

The Gulf Breeze Zoo is just outside of Pensacola's city limits, but it's easy to get from the Inspire apartments to the zoo in well under 45 minutes. A great place to take the kids for a day trip, this 50-acre zoo hosts approximately 800 different animals.

Make sure to stop by the budgie aviary, where you can feed the friendly birds by hand. A fun safari train ride lets you view antelope, deer, hippos, gorillas, and even rhinoceroses in the zoo's preserve.

Experience Pensacola Beach

It's effortless to drive from Pensacola Beach from Inspire Pensacola — just hop on I-10 E, then take US-98 E across the Pensacola Bay Bridge. You'll find many of the area's best dining and nightlife options on this bustling barrier island.

For an upscale experience well suited to a special date night, stop by The Grand Marlin of Pensacola Beach. An extensive seafood menu and an exceptionally attentive wait staff make the Grand Marlin one of the strip's best-reviewed dining options.

If you're more about enjoying a few drinks than sitting down for a full meal, try the Casino Beach Bar. This social spot offers a laid-back island vibe with a focus on fancy cocktails and live entertainment.

You'll never be out of places to go and things to do when you make your home at Inspire Pensacola. Set up an appointment to tour these distinctive apartments in Pensacola today.
