Downtown Pensacola, Florida

We love to travel all over the place, but we also love to play tourist in our own backyard.  I started the website Pensacola with Kids a few months ago and  what an amazing gift to my family it has been!  We have had so many new adventures while we get out there and explore our own city and surrounding areas in between our other travels. 

This morning, Little S and I drove around Downtown Pensacola to spot all things red.  This is the theme over at I Should Be Folding Laundry’s You Capture this week.  We had so much fun on our little scavenger hunt!  Pensacola is technically the oldest US settlement but unfortunately it isn’t the oldest continuous settlement.  St. Augustine gets that title because Pensacola was wiped out by a hurricane.  This year marks the 450th anniversary of Pensacola.  I let Little S choose which pictures to use!  Enjoy!  I think she made some great choices!

Pensacola is also known as the City of Five Flags

Signs like these are posted all over downtown to help direct!

This big guy is one of the Pelicans in Paradise from a few years ago.  He is one of the few that remain in a main tourist spot and not in a business.

I think Little S spotted this one to convince me to buy some yummy doughnuts for a snack!

Stop by You Capture to check out all things red this week!
