  1. Default Houston to Pensacola

    Heading to Pensacola next June from Houston with family (round trip).
    What is to see or do in between here and there. Planning on camping, and can take the long way around, if not too far off the beaten path.
    Or anything to do around the area near Pensacola.

    Hi, Tim! About an hour away from Pensacola is Destin. If you take US-98 heading east, the drive is quite nice especially through Destin where the water tend to be very 'emerald'! Lots of good restaurants there and plenty of shopping, there's also a couple of state parks and there's something called Shell Island (that we missed because we went during the winter) where you can take a boat to. Some places there offer swimming with dolphins, etc. And somewhere in between Pensacola and Destin is Fort Walton where you'll find Gulfarium, a pretty cool animal aquatic park. We didn't have time to explore Alabama or Mississippi, but New Orleans is a well worth side trip. Have fun!
