We are possibly looking at moving to the Pensacola area, and I was just wondering if I could get some suggestion on family oriented neighborhoods in the Pensacola area. Interested in community, schools, churches, property taxes. Hoping for some info that will help in MLS searches.

Thanks!

Mom

I don't know much about Pensacola, but I've read people say to stay clear of Warrington.

Pensacola is a great place to live. Although there are nice areas (and not-so-nice areas) all around the city, I'd recommend you look on the northeast side of town, off Spanish Trail--"surburbia" within the city limits. You'll find miles of beautiful mature neighborhoods/developments on the northeast side. Also nice neighborhoods along the Bayou, south of Cordova Mall and in East Hill. Washington HS generally racks up the top SAT scores among the city schools. Pace--further out to the northeast, toward Milton--is a much newer suburban area. And Gulf Breeze--on a peninsula between the city and P-cola Beach--is also very nice.

Both Pace and GB have great school systems. Downside to Pace is that it's a haul into town. Downside to GB is that when hurricanes roll in, they regularly get whacked.

We settled on northeast Pensacola, about 6 or 7 miles in from the beach, east of the airport (flights take-off & land north & south). Still only 10 minutes from the Gulf, but we escaped the wrath of the 'canes. Kids got a great education--both now have graduate degrees from top schools in the northeast--and like everyone who ever lives in Pensacola, have always loved the area. Have fun!
