Bright Ideas for the New Year!


Whether you loved 2019 or are happy to see it go, 2020 has arrived! Here’s a list of ways to get this new year started off with a bang:

  1. Shop locally – the downtown area has numerous boutiques and specialty stores. Shopping locally ensures one-of-a-kind gifts for your family and friends. Bodacious Olive, Rusted Arrow Mercantile, Bell Ame’, and Pensacola Hardware are a few favorites.
  2. Indulge yourself – visit one of Pensacola’s fantastic spas to treat yourself to a facial, massage, or body treatment. We like Stay The Spa, Still Waters, Escape, and Aqua.
  3. Visit the Palafox Farmer’s Market – we have so many wonderfully made artisanal products right here, no need to leave town or order online. Check out Mrs. Jones coffee, Big Jerk soda, Maeday Farm, and many others.
  4. Enjoy local breweries – if you’re a beer connoisseur, you are in luck! Pensacola’s beer scene has blown up. Spend an afternoon with friends visiting Perfect Plain, A Little Madness, Odd Colony, Big Top, Gulf Coast, and Gary’s to name just a few.
  5. Take a walking food tour – it’s a great way to meet new people, try foods you’ve never had & learn exciting things about Pensacola whether you’re a local or a tourist. Five Flags Food Tours will begin tours in early 2020. Follow us on social media for updates & to purchase tickets go to
