Pensacola Intro

So this blog post is just a preface for new posts to come. 

I have been inspired by one of my favorite lifestyle bloggers, Julia Engel (in more ways than one). She is beyond stylish and her hair is TO DYE FOR! (am I punny?) But her fashion and beauty hacks are not what I am talking about here. I am talking about her Charleston guide. I am going to start a segment of my blog where I discuss my favorite areas of Pensacola. This town is a great vacation spot so hopefully I can help a few tourists find the "hidden gems" of the first settlement of America.

Most people don't know the history of Pensacola so you're in for a treat. Don Tristan de Luna somehow stumbled upon Pensacola Bay during his exploration in 1559. This was the first European contact in the United States since it preceded Jamestown by almost 50 years! Unfortunately, the colony was wiped out by a hurricane and at one point NW Florida was deemed "too dangerous to settle". 

Intrigued?? Stay tuned for my newest segment all about Pensacola where I will take you on my many adventures.
