The best areas in Pensacola in my opinion are the NE area of town. The schools in that area of town are the best. If your main focus is schools, I would check out Santa Rosa county. Mainly Gulf Breeze or Pace. They both have excellent school and programs. Gulf Breeze is a little more expensive. You won't have a problem finding any school in Santa Rosa county that is lacking in sports. They also have area wide youth programs like soccer and T-Ball. I don't know what age your kids are. But you won't have a problem.

Cantonment is nice, but I don't like the bad smell of the Paper Mill. It is constant. And, the schools aren't as good as others. Now this is just my opinion, I don't want to ruffle any feathers.

Have you tried Daphne? Its just east of Mobile, across the bridge. Its a nice little town and probably a better value than Pensacola.

There are three distinct populations in Pensacola. One is military as the Naval Air Station is on the southwestern edge of Pensacola. Lots of retired Navy folks there. The second part is very old south. As you venture towards the fringes, with the exception of the NE and far west areas, you find very many poor people. The third group in Pensacola is very religious. You can find religious activists on the corners with loudspeakers and bibles, people carrying crosses, etc. If you are not any of these 3 groups, especially the last one, you may have a tough time fitting in.

Maybe not, I do visit Pcola a few times every month and I have never seen a religious activists in the area. I normally stop by the old Palafox, nine mile road, and the Navy side of town.....Many churches in the area, will fit everyone if you are looking for a church...
