<p>Pensacola is home to a thriving community of artists. Downtown Pensacola is a haven for art collectors and creators alike. Seven times a year, the streets fill up with people who flock in from all over town for Gallery Night. At Gallery Night, Pensacolans can try their hand at a new art or pick up something one-of-a-kind for the apartment. While you're waiting for the next Gallery Night to roll into town, you can also head downtown for ballet recitals, operas, theatrical performances, and symphonic concerts. Pensacola is proud to be home to resident companies for all of these performance arts. </p>
World's Whitest Beaches
<p>Pensacola is a city with many nicknames, perhaps none so apt as the home of the "World's Whitest Beaches." It gets this name from the snowy white sand beach that stretches out for miles. With its emerald green waters and sugar-soft sand, the Pensacola Beach has been ranked the third best in the nation and the 25th best in the entire world. For those who are interested in conserving this beautiful beach for generations to come, the Footprints in the Sand Eco-Trail has been designed to inform beach goers about the fragile ecosystem of the Florida tidelands.</p>
