Why West Florida Should Be On Your Radar

Northwest Florida is growing in stride and reputation—giving residents and businesses the power to transform possibility into opportunity. 


We are sizable.

As the largest city in the Florida Panhandle—and serving as the cultural hub for the region—Pensacola offers small city safety and comfort, with big city amenities: opera, symphony, theater, museums and more. Steeped in four centuries of history, the historic assets of our region showcase a rich learning and leisure destination for visitors and citizens alike.

We are accessible.

Within a five-mile radius, residents and business can access major thoroughfares by land, sea or air with Interstate 10, CSX and the Gulf Coast Railway, a deep-water port, an international airport with 11 non-stop flights, and entry to the Intercoastal Waterway.

We are attractive.

The Gulf Coast is attractive for beach and military enthusiasts, but also businesses and a growing workforce. Noted as the cradle of aviation, home to NAS Pensacola, as well as three four-year colleges, Pensacola is cementing its position as a contender in the aviation, marine, aerospace, and tech industries.
