Pensacola Beach - 2/22/2010
I must agree that Pensacola is a dying town and the crime is the same as in any large city and the beach is bad too. Living at Pensacola Beach means you pay to lease the lot your house is on and then pay property taxes,but you do not get title to your house or the lot. When a storm destroys your home, the Santa Rosa Island Authority tells you that you must rebuild (out of your own pocket)exactly prior to the storm. The Santa Rosa Island Authority will make decisions for "improvement" which means some contractor the SRIA hires destroys your yard and driveway. You are always told that everything will be replaced,Ha. During Blue Angel weekend, people park their cars in your yard. They throw their trash in your yard, they tear up your yard when they leave drunk. You have to replace water sprinklers and pick up their trash. One weekend in May, some graduates of a Mobile highschool come to the beach and they bring guns and drugs. They wander the neighborhoods and wander into your yard. A Read More

Crime and Homeless have taken over Pensacola - 6/6/2009
I have been living here since 2001. The homeless problem has aways been bad here. But after hurricane Katrina the homeless people and crime has become very bad. Pensacola use to be a nice place to live, but with almost daily shootings, rapes, break in's and the list goes on. I am working towards getting out of this city. If I wanted this much crap I would of moved to New Orleans.

Hard to go any place without some homeless clown asking for a hand out. Gangs are here and the list goes on.

Property taxes are ultra high. If you live in the city limits you should see all the extra taxes the city adds on to your utility bills. Jobs are hard to find and most will pay min Read More

Big Town / Small City - 5/22/2009
Pensacola is a great place to live. The weather is great almost all year and winter only lasts 6-8 weeks. The cost of living is low. We have cultural sites and events both in Pensacola and within easy commute. Pensacola has the feel of a town but the variety of a Read More

The Emerald Coast is a Beautiful Place to Live and - 10/4/2008
Pensacola is well known for having the whitest sand on the beach, but what Pensacola isn't as well known for is the wonderful bay available for water recreation.

I believe Pensacola Bay rivals the more well known sailing destinations such as Annapolis, MD and Charleston, SC.

Boating is a great way to spend time as a family and Pensacola offers many places to anchor for lunch or the entire night. You can sail, fish, ski, and just plain enjoy the wonderful body of water we have called Pensacola Read More

Nice but backward - 7/6/2008
Pensacola has some of the best beaches I have ever seen. Not only that they are very accessible by the public. Compared to other beaches in Florida there are none better.

However the city really has the character of Alabama. Education levels are not that high and there are no jobs. Tourism is the only industry. There is no reason to move here unless you are a beach bum of want a poor house and a low cost of Read More

The Least Expensive Florida Waterfront Community - 4/1/2008
For years 17.5 to be exact I watched real estate values in this community. Our median price for a home here for the 1st quarter of 2008 is $155,565. there is no other waterfront community that offers so much for so little.
Arts, Theater, Symphony, Festivals, Sports, Beaches and oh yes did I say BEACHES! When I arrived here in 1991 Dr Beach rated Perdido Key State Beach as th 2nd best beach in the US ... well the first was in Hawaii .. a bit to far for me to travel or Read More
