Al Fresco Pensacola

A few weeks ago my family and I revisited Al Fresco in Downtown Pensacola and I was reminded the last time we visited I took pictures with plans to blog it. Life can get a bit crazy,lol The first time we visited was a few months ago, both times the food was delicious! Al Fresco is a collection of food trailers with all sorts of cuisines in Downtown Pensacola. They share a courtyard as well as seating. Another plus at Al Fresco, they have water misters strung in between the palm trees to keep you cool. The first time we visited I got a pulled pork sandwich from Gunshot BBQ, which unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of, my parents shared a few different types of tacos from Z Taco. They both really enjoyed the Zeviche which is pictured below. The second time we visited I had Five Flags Mac and Cheese from Gouda Stuff which I loved! I highly recommend visiting Al Fresco no matter if you are a local or just visiting! Coincidentally the first time we went to Al Fresco it was Cinco De Mayo and they were having a Pig Roast to celebrate. Be sure to check out this post for a Giveaway for a beautiful Coffee Table Photo Book. Enjoy 🙂

My Most Favorite Place in the World

Today I thought I would let you in on my most favorite place in the world, Perdido Key, Pensacola, Florida. I grew up in Pensacola, and its my home!  After moving away from Pensacola eight years ago I have missed it so much and I am always counting the days until my next trip back.  It is absolutely beautiful with the sugar sand beaches and most unforgettable sunsets. When we moved to the Atlanta area we finally had a chance to go back home for a visit.  After being gone for so long it was like seeing a long lost friend which by the way when we visited last August we had a wonderful reunion with many long time friends!

A beautiful Sunset at Johnson’s Beach.

Johnson’s Beach is unrivaled in my mind for its beaches, Pensacola has two main beaches Johnson’s Beach which is on Perdido Key and Pensacola Beach which is also on an Island. Pensacola Beach is beautiful but is much more commercial and is a party beach, Johnson’s Beach is a National Sea Shore so it is protected from any building. Johnson’s has miles and miles of pristine sugar white beaches and turquoise water! Even on a rainy, cloudy day it shines like no other!

Check out I ♥ Perdido Key on Facebook, I love following their page to keep up with all of the Events on Perdido Key! They have some of the most amazing pictures of Perdido Key, I think you will truly enjoy it!

Beautiful Sunrise on Perdido Key.

There are few hotels right on Perdido Key but many Condos for very reasonable prices! When we stay right on Perdido Key we use VRBO to find a condo to stay in, we have been very pleased with their service!

A few of my favorite places to eat on Perdido Key are Lillian’s Pan Pizza, they have the most amazing Kansas City BBQ Chicken Pizza I have ever had, and I have tried countless BBQ Pizza’s! The Oyster Bar is another great choice for a very nice meal looking out at the Intercoastal, the Seafood platter is delish!  Whenever we want a quick meal that is amazing and laid back we go to Sunset Grill at Holiday Harbor, my parents absolutely love their Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos and the grilled chicken sandwich is yummy.  Needless to say they have the most beautiful Sunsets that you can view right from there outdoor patio while enjoying the amazing
