My family of 4 is headed to Pensacola for two nights July 3rd and 4th. We're driving through on a road trip and really only have the 4th. Our top priority is the beach but I'm open to other ideas as well! We have a 6 and 4 year old.
First any specific beach recommendations? Sounds like there is a quietwater beach that is good for kids but my oldest is hoping to body board so I'm thinking the main beach?
Since we'll be staying in downtown how early should we head out to the beach in the morning? And how long will it take to get to the beach on the 4th?
We're used to Texas gulf beaches and usually bring a pop-up shade, is that allowed on Pensacola beaches? It's not small so if we have a long walk that would also be more challenging.
I've been reading through the forums and they are great! I'd love any other tips/ideas you guys have!
