There’s a lot to do in Pensacola this summer, from sunning at the beach to watching a Minor League Baseball game.

WKRG News 5 has put up a list of five things to do in Pensacola.

  1. Pensacola Beach

Pensacola Beach is a great place to put your toes in the sand. The beach is the ideal spot to spend a hot summer day, whether you want to swim, create sandcastles, or simply relax and tan.

2. 5 Flags Speedway

If you enjoy NASCAR, we believe you will enjoy the races at 5 Flags Speedway. The raceway has historically staged NASCAR races as well as the famed Snowball Derby and Demolition Derby.

3. Gulf Breeze Zoo

Oh, the lions, the tigers, and the bears! Not only can you watch the animals, but there is also an interactive feeding area for those who like to get up close and personal with them.

4. Sam’s Fun City

On a hot summer day, being in the water is always a wonderful idea. Float down the lazy river or ride the water slides.

5. Blue Wahoos
