Pensacola is located in the panhandle of Florida and situated on Pensacola Bay off the Gulf of Mexico. Our school is a short drive from downtown Pensacola and near the home of the first U.S. Naval Air Station, where the Blue Angels and the National Naval Aviation Museum are based. This is a unique place to live and learn, and we’re proud of the many things to do right in our own backyard!
National Naval Aviation Museum: One of the premier destinations in the state, the museum features one-of-a-kind aircraft inside its 350,000 square feet of exhibit space situated on 37-acre grounds. Admission is free, and it’s open daily.
Pensacola Lighthouse and Museum: Just across from the aviation museum, the lighthouse offers amazing views of the Pensacola Pass. The historic structure was built in 1859 and includes the fully restored Keepers’ Quarters.
Pensacola Beach Gulf Pier: With some of the best fishing and sights in the state, the pier extends more than 1,470 feet over two sandbars. Watch the sunset, go surfing, or drop a line and catch dinner!
Blackwater River State Recreation Area: Visitors can rent a cabin or camp by the Blackwater River while enjoying a weekend (or longer!) of water sports, hiking, and relaxation.
