There are plenty of hotels in Pensacola, but we would argue a beachside rental is the way to go. The options here are easy, family-friendly, and luxurious. Ariola Drive faces the emerald surf of the Gulf and is home to several picture-perfect beach homes with private pools and rooftop decks for blasts of that warm, salty air. We loved this one with its classic white clapboard exterior and huge dining area for family feasts. A few doors down, this three-story, modernist property has floor-to-ceiling windows and a porch that runs the length of the house—convenient for keeping one eye on the kids on the sand below without having to leave the house.
