As Promised By The Fat To Fit Radio Show...

50 Things To Do In Pensacola This Summer!

School will be out in a month and some kids will be looking around saying “I’m bored” which will soon drive mothers insane. Here is a nice long list of plenty to do in our area. 

  1. Swim Lessons- We are surrounded by water. Everyone that lives here needs to know how to swim!
  2. Park exploring- If I listed every single park in Santa Rosa and Escambia Counties I’d fill the entire list with parks. One of our favorite things to do is start in East Hill and park hop- there is a new park every block. Just look, you’ll find them everywhere
  3. Portofino Dolphin Cruise- sometimes you can find a groupon for this or call Portofino directly if you can get a group together for a discount
  4. The Yard- This new restaurant will leave you feeling like a hipster as your kids play and you sip your wine on their lawn. Great food and there is a coupon in the coupon books the kids sold earlier this year.
  5. Roger Scott Pool- $3 a person to get in- swim or play for 2-3 hour sessions
  6. Plant and harvest a garden
  7. Naval Aviation Museum- you can spend hours in there
  8. Take an art class- Several options available around town
