Saturday July 16th
On Saturday, why not take a day trip to Pensacola Beach as the world famous Blue Angels. The Blues take to the skies at noon on Saturday but if you are going, you need to get there early…and we do mean early. The main lots on the beach fill up quickly for the show so it is recommended to get there at 7AM. Enjoy the beach for a few hours and then witness the aerial acrobatics of the Navy’s top pilots as they take to the skies.

Hope aboard with the Blue Angels for a 360 degree view from inside the cockpit.
