America’s First European Settlement (1559)
Welcome to Paradise, Jewel of The Emerald Coast, The First European Settlement, The City of Five Flags and affectionately The Redneck Riviera. All names used to describe Pensacola — We just call it home.
Serving as an advocate for Pensacola and the northern Gulf Coast lifestyle, it is an honor and pleasure to boast about Pensacola and welcome you to our neighborhood communities and coastal lifestyle. I also welcome you to our surrounding coastal abundance of natural beauty, history, water sports, and rich small business and family climate – not to mention our southern hospitality.
To start, our sugar-white beaches have been welcoming travelers and settlers longer than any other destination in the United States.
As the very first European settlement (1559) in America, the nation of Spain planted the first national flag on our shores – – even then recognizing the amazing value of our “waterfront real estate opportunities”!!
Today, our internationally recognized – and awarded — beaches bring new adventurers and settlers every year.
Beyond water front, water view, and water access, we are rich with extensive conservation coastline held within the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
The Spaniards, French, and British governed Pensacola because of its strategic real estate location linking, timber, seafood, maritime industries and political importance to the international marketplace.
Today, the “Port of Pensacola” has new meaning: We are not only home to neighbors that support off-shore industries in the Gulf and throughout the world; Pensacola now enjoys many direct flights to the nation’s largest cities and most important international hubs.
Our neighborhood demographics now include global telecommuters: news and pop culture celebrities, sports celebrities, international business executives, politicians and everyday globe trotters as well. They claim to have the best of all worlds. Why not live in Paradise and commute from here?
Pensacola neighborhoods range from Urban Village to Country Spacious; Old & Historic to Master-planned Golf Course; Waterfront,view,access to Downtown and a lot more.
