Overview of Pensacola
Nestled on the left edge of the Florida panhandle, Pensacola is a city that borders both the Gulf of Mexico and the state of Louisiana. The metropolis has been home to one of the country's biggest and most influential air bases, and its residents have time to relax in the sun and enjoy the shows put on by the famous Blue Angels flight demonstration team.
Home to 51,923 Floridians, the city has a rich history, warm climate and diverse population, making Pensacola apartments for rent a popular choice for people moving to Florida. The area is known for its white beaches, naval aviation development and has been part of five governments during its history, giving it the nickname the "City of Five Flags."
Living in Pensacola, FL
The city appears to have been part of the earliest landings of Europeans in America, but an early attempt at colonization in the region around 1559 was thwarted by a hurricane, and the Spanish abandoned the area for more than a century. However, settles returned to the area in 1693, and the government of Spain set up three colonies to deter French expansion into Pensacola Bay.
Ceded to the British in 1763, Pensacola changed hands during the Revolutionary War and eventually became part of the U.S. in 1821 when Florida became a state.
The many influences in the area can still be seen today, as Pensacola apartments can be found in places with history relating to a number of cultures. Since it is a seaport on the bay, there is both waterfront property and land that is well removed from the ocean. Annexation of the areas surrounding the metropolis has been prevented, and because of this the population has not swelled past its 2000 Census numbers.
Pensacola Work and Study
The city is largely influenced by the nation's first Naval Air Station, and the many hospitals associated with this branch of the military provide locals with places to work and excellent healthcare options.
Though the downtown area of the city is relatively small, the port area provides residents with a number of shipping- and marine-based employment opportunities. Pensacola is also home to a burgeoning tech industry, as a new firm is entering the city and will create more than 100 jobs within the next five years.
The colleges and universities located in the city are all on the smaller side, but they provide a number of unique degrees and numerous job opportunities for residents.
Rentals in Pensacola, FL and Cost of Living

Pensacola Attractions and Special Events
The city is home to a number of annual events, as festivals, scenic tours, naval air shows and roughly five centuries of history are available for people to see. The National Naval Aviation Museum is a big draw, and people often are amazed by the famous blue jets flying overhead during training exercises or shows.
The Pensacola Area has a number of theatres and performance venues, where artists and entertainers influenced by the numerous cultures in the region come and provide high-quality shows for residents and tourists.
The city's proximity to the water allows residents to enjoy the sun aboard either their own personal vessel, a touring ship or along the sandy, white beaches. Fun in the sun is a pastime for most Floridians and Pensacola is home to a warm climate year-round.
