The Southeast Tourism Society has recently labeled the Pensacola Beach Air Show as a STS Top 20 Event in the Southeast for May 2017. The STS Top 20 Festival and Event Awards have showcased programs since 1985 around the Southeast. 20 events are shortlisted by the Travel industry experts every month. Later on, STS publicizes them all through the United States. One can get the complete list in two of these websites: EscapeToTheSoutheast.com and Travel Media Press Room respectively.
Thousands of visitors on every July, visit the sugar-white sand and turquoise water of Pensacola Beach to witness the best flight demonstration squadron perform of the U.S. Navy’s at their annual Pensacola Beach Air Show.
Recognized for their high-flying aerial maneuvers and laser-point precision, the Blue Angels — or “Blues,” as the locals address their hometown heroes is yet another attraction! Last year, the team celebrated its 70th anniversary which all started in 1946, a long legacy in a city whose reputation as a tourist destination is rivaled only by its military heritage.
Without a doubt, Pensacola is known as the “Cradle of Naval Aviation.” Naval Air Station Pensacola — is situated located at the west of the city’s colonial-era downtown. It has trained generations of airmen and is the home base for the Blue Angels.
