Pensacola Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

Like most of northern Florida, Pensacola enjoys cooler winter months and hot, occasionally rainy summer days. Boasting around 343 days of blessed sunshine per year, plus an average daily temperature of 68 F, any time is clearly the right time to visit Pensacola. Swimmers and snorkelers will love the warm summer waters in the mid-80s. During the winter, waters remain around the mid-60s.
