I just received this information below and couldn't help but share it with the world!

I love the idea that tourism works to keep out county running. The idea that vacationers bring money to spend here in our local economy and that this reduces what local residents are burdened with paying is absolutely fantastic. The folks running the show over at VisitPensacola are doing a great job touting our area as one of the premier vacation destinations in the county! I often hear that we're ranked #1 in various polls and it's clear why; we live in paradise.

Come to vacation and leave wondering why you don't live here!


Why is tourism important to me as a resident?

Once visitors arrive, their spending has widespread positive effects for our community.


Visit Pensacola’s marketing efforts give visibility to prospective residents and business owners that might consider relocating to the area. Our marketing is the front door for Escambia County’s economic development.

Tourism Works for Pensacola is a public service campaign designed to educate citizens about the economic impact and overall value of tourism to the local economy. Click here for more information.



Our piece of paradise is not only great for the vacationer, but its appeal is great for our county as these vacationers bring their hard-earned money and spend it here in our area. It's money well-spent because our community is able to provide adventure tourism opportunities around Big Lagoon and Perdido Key areas, cultural tourism appeal throughout the county and especially around our historic downtown, sports tourism since we events all throughout the year, and everyone knows that the beaches are amazing. There's truly something for everyone here.

Come to vacation and leave wondering why you don't live here!
