Whether you've just moved to the area or want to try something new, here are the top 10 things to do in Pensacola before summer ends:

1. Naval Aviation Museum

After being closed to the public for few years, the Naval Aviation Museum at NAS is open for general admission again! Admission is free and if you time it right, you can meet and get autographs from the Blue Angels pilots. Get more info here.

2. Bands on the Beach/Bayou

Every Tuesday from April to October, bring a chair and enjoy local bands play for free at the Pensacola Beach Pavilion. Get more info here

Not free on Tuesdays? Try Bands on the Bayou at Bayou Texar

3. Gallery Night

Although this is a year round event, summer Gallery Nights are extra fun. Every third Friday, take a walk up and down Palafox Street to check out local artists, restaurants/bars, and vendors. Get more info here.

4. Palafox Market

Not a night owl? Check out Palafox Market on Saturdays! During the summer, there's a free trolley that will take you up and down Palafox Street so you can see all the local vendors.  Get more info here.

5. Fort Pickens

Take in some of Pensacola's history at Fort Pickens. Climb the steps for an amazing view (you might even catch the Blue Angels practicing!) or explore the tunnels and see what life was like during the Civil War.  Get more info here.

6. Blue Wahoos Game

Even if you're not a baseball fan, you have to experience a game at the Wahoos Stadium. Have a gourmet snack or cocktail with gorgeous views of the Bay, feel the excitement of the crowd, and you might be surprised to learn that you actually do like baseball. And did you know the Wahoos Stadium is the only baseball field in America you can rent as an AirBnB?! Get more info here.

7. Get On the Water

There are so many options to get on the water around Pensacola. Wakeboard on the Bayou, jet ski in the Bay, or take a kayak down one of Pensacola's many canals. If you don't own any watercraft, there are tons of places to rent one for an hour or a day!  Get more info here.

8. Pensacola Children's Museum/Mess Hall

If you're looking for a way to entertain your little ones while they're still home from school, take a day trip to the Children's Museum or Mess Hall. With lots of educational and interactive exhibits, they'll be entertained for hours.  Get more info here.
