Pensacola, Florida is known as the "five flags city" in honor of a diverse history of ownership from numerous countries including Spain, France, and Great Britain. This name holds true not only in history, but culture.

There are so many things to do while visiting Pensacola, Florida, guests find it hard to pick from the proverbial buffet of exciting activities the city has to offer. After mulling through all the family fun events, attractions, and tours, I thought of the one thing we all enjoy, kickin' back and watching the game!

A day at the park, rink, raceway, or field is the perfect escape for vacationers staying in the city, or surrounding beach communities including Orange Beach, Pensacola Beach, and Navarre.
