Weather

Pensacola experiences weather patterns typical of northern Florida, with cool winter months and hot, sticky summer days. It has an average annual temperature of 68˚F and gets 343 days of sunshine a year. Afternoon rain falls the heaviest between June and September, though most months average over 4in.

Getting Around

Downtown Pensacola, from the historic districts to the waterfront, is walkable. But it is difficult to get around outside of downtown without a car.

Escambia County Transit has a limited bus service around Pensacola; the company's free trolley connects downtown Pensacola and the beach between Memorial Day weekend and the end of September. The I-10 is the major east-west thoroughfare to catch the bus from; a number of buses pass down Palafox St. Several taxi services work the city. Bike hire is another option.

Along with a plethora of highways connecting major regional destinations, Pensacola is well served by major airlines, bus companies and Amtrack.

Pensacola Regional Airport is served by many major airlines; it's 4 miles northeast of downtown off 9th Ave on Airport Blvd. A taxi costs about $15 to downtown and $28 to the beach. Try Yellow Cab.
