Warm sand between your toes. The cool breeze off of the Gulf. Pristine waters gently sway before you while the iconic Blue Angels perform above in the sky. These images bring thousands of people to beach each year.
However, remember there are still a few subtle rules that will make your experience top notch. Saturday, July 14 will surely be a day to remember, but if you’ve never been or if you’re looking for the best tips and tricks, you’ve come to the right place.
Even though the Blue Angels perform at 2 pm, you should try to leave early. There are limited places to park and the bridges back up early. Make sure to be on a look out for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Try something new and ditch the hot car ride to the beach, and take advantage of the ferry. The ferry picks up from Downtown Pensacola and drops off at Quietwater Beach and Fort Pickens starting at 7 am. Three trolleys and 10 additional buses will operate from Park West to Park East as well.
Temperatures are going to be a high of 91 degrees, so remember to bring plenty of water and sunscreen. There is a possibility of scattered showers so bring and umbrella and stay tuned for WEAR Channel 3 for the latest weather updates.
A few helpful items to bring in addition:
