Pensacola's main attractions include the National Naval Aviation Museum, Fort Barrancas, Pensacola Light, Saenger Theatre and Blue Wahoos Stadium. Protected beaches and the Historic Pensacola Village are two of the main allures in Pensacola that draw visitors annually, but many consider calling Pensacola home - 241,876 people, in fact. With low real estate prices, owning a piece of Florida real estate, either as a primary residence or a vacation property, is attainable.
