A Pensacola favorite and a must try for any seafood lover is Fisherman’s Corner! Located just north of Perido Key, this casual fine dining restaurant was awarded the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for its outstanding wine collection and service. A cozy atmosphere coupled with an incredibly creative cuisine ranked it as one of Pensacola’s best. Best known for their New Orleans style bread pudding, we recommend you try them out.

An inside look at a Pensacola gem!
Part of the 𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐬 tour and 𝐇𝐨𝐩-𝐎𝐧 𝐇𝐨𝐩-𝐎𝐟𝐟 tour is the graffiti bridge; uniquely characteristic of Pensacola. While many are aware of its presence, its history isn’t as well known. Originally built in 1888, the bridge has been painted on for generations now! Graffiti coats every square inch of the bridge itself, so the art is naturally expanding to areas surrounding it. With the art changing daily, the artists know that nothing is permanent as their works could be painted over in a matter of hours. However, if something memorable is put on, it might just stick around for a while.
Be sure to “hop on” one of our tours and see the bridge for yourself. We are now open!
We have the perfect Pensacola gem for you to try!

An inside look at one of our most popular destinations!
Part of the 𝐇𝐨𝐩-𝐎𝐧 𝐇𝐨𝐩-𝐎𝐟𝐟, 𝐀𝐧𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐰 𝐉𝐚𝐜𝐤𝐬𝐨𝐧, 𝐂𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐥 𝐖𝐚𝐫, 𝐀𝐫𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞, and 𝐋𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐤𝐬 tours, Old Christ Church is a significant Pensacola landmark. Erected in 1832, it is the oldest religious building in Florida still on its original foundation and suffered greatly during Union occupation during the Civil War. While its days as church ended in 1903, it has served as a library, museum, and more recently as a wedding venue.
Nearby is Pensacola Bay Brewery, which is the second oldest of its type in the city. We occasionally offer a 𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐓𝐨𝐮𝐫 that visits there. You should taste the beer yourself and absorb the history that surrounds you!
McGuire’s Irish Pub is one of the stops on our Hop-on Hop-off Tour. This family owned business is truly one-of-a-kind. It contains the oldest operating craft brewery in Florida and was the first restaurant in Pensacola to receive a Golden Spoon award, recognizing its outstanding culinary. McGuire’s is still open for business, and we encourage folks to visit them.

The Garden Club recently went on the Andrew Jackson Tour. Here are their comments: "Our group really enjoyed the tour. There wasn't as much congestion as we feared and things went smoothly. The video is done so well and is very informative. Although we have lived here many years, we drive by these historic spots without fully appreciating their significance. AND we did it on Feb. 22, the very date that the Adams-Onis Treaty was signed 200 years ago. Great job, Curtis."
