-I always look forward to my weekly happy hour/dinner at The Fish House. My simple staples are wine and a fresh Caesar salad, and I can’t live without the Soul Rolls—
They are heaven wrapped up in rice paper!
-Oysters at Peg Leg’s is typically one of my family’s weekend lunch favorites.
-Pumps is one of my favorite spots to hit in Pensacola. Ella Moss is a great designer of sweet, stylish, casual clothing, and Mary always has the latest.
-The Linen Corner is always my first stop when I am looking for unique gifts. Cheryl is so cute and always ready to help in the hunt.
-I love the margarita selection at Margaritaville. They offer a variety of styles—not your typical sweet and syrupy one. Did I mention the view is amazing?
-I love sitting at the bar at Jackson’s and snacking on some great apps. It’s a perfect hangout for a date or for drinks with the girls.
-The Wine Bar is a favorite of mine. Mari is always on top of her game with great wine and great food.
-I don’t get out past 9 p.m. too much anymore, but when I do, I always try to hit Seville Quarter for great music and some good ‘ole fashioned Pensacola fun. You never know what you’ll find there.
-Fitness Onboard helped me get my feet wet with stand-up paddle boarding boot camp. Heather Kelley is a great instructor, and fun too.
-4ShoreFit boot camp in Gulf Breeze is great if you’re into an outdoor butt kicking! Erin looks so sweet, but she will break you down…in a good way, of course.
Arts & Culture:
-The Anna Lamar Switzer Center for Visual Arts at Pensacola State College has a great permanent collection as well as some awesome exhibitions. I love popping by when I’m on that side of town to see what they have going.
-I always hit the Pensacola Museum of Art when I have extra time. They have great exhibits and the historical building is so interesting on its own. My 2-and-a-half-year-old is so intrigued by the space and loves playing around in there.
Never Miss Events/Festivals:
-As a Fiesta Forces volunteer, I never miss the Crawfish Fest or Seafood Fest. It’s so much fun to see everyone. Pensacola is so unique and so old, I love supporting the founding of our city.
