Lora Point Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The homes of Lora Point reflect the architectural history of this area. Elegant two-stories have a timeless design, while others recall classic Southern styles. As an established neighborhood, large oaks grace the winding roads of this prestigious neighborhood. Lora Point is bound by Scenic Highway, with access by Barranca Lora. The neighborhood is just north of the I-10 bridge over Escambia Bay in zip code 32514.
The neighborhood’s proximity to I-10 gives residents quick access to the recreational activities in the vast protected area of Escambia River Wildlife Management Area. Favorite activities here include boating and fishing, horseback riding, and hiking. The region protects several cool, clear rivers that drain into the bay, making it ideal for kayakers and canoeists.
Other nearby recreational facilities include Scenic Hills Country Club. This luxury club hosts the only US Open in the state, and while quite grand, SHCC offers various membership levels. Pensacola Country Club and Pensacola Yacht Club are located near the Gulf.
Pensacola’s cultural and historic attractions rival its many recreational areas. Downtown, near the harbor, a multi-block area includes the Pensacola Museum of Art, Saenger Theatre, galleries, and restaurants. From Ferdinand Plaza to Seville Square, five centuries of history await discovery. The harbor just south of the historic district has a lovely new park with a grand promenade, fountains, and great views of the harbor and bay.
Of course, the Gulf of Mexico provides its own special kind of beauty, history, and recreational features. While Pensacola Beach is perhaps the best known, the quieter and unspoiled beaches of the Gulf Islands National Seashore appeal to many others. Some of the area’s most famous forts, recalling the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, are protected in the state parks along the Gulf.
