Mayfair Apartments for Rent
The Mayfair neighborhood , located just outside the port city of Pensacola, Florida, is composed mainly of small ranch homes, though some newly-constructed homes in this neighborhood are quite spacious and feature a second story. This is a convenient suburban area, with recreational facilities and retail areas close by. Mayfair is loosely bound by Massachusetts Avenue, East Madison Drive, South Madison Drive and West Garfield Drive and is in zip code 32505.
Golfers may be pleased to find Osceola Municipal Golf Course almost in the neighborhood. This 18-hole course is within walking distance, located along Mobile Highway. A short drive north is Marcus Pointe Golf Course and Green Meadows Par Three.
Shopping is equally convenient. There is a Wal-Mart Supercenter within blocks of Mayfair. Another retail center at the intersection of Mobile Highway and West Michigan Avenue features a Publix supermarket and a variety of fast food restaurants. The most comprehensive shopping district is near Pensacola State University. Cordova Mall is anchored by two Dillard’s department stores, and offers a number of specialty shops, upscale retail stores and boutiques. There is a cinema complex here, as well as a good selection of casual dining establishments.
Those seeking higher education will find several options a short drive from home. Pensacola Junior College is little more than four miles away, while Pensacola State College, which offers two- and four-year degrees, is fewer than six miles.
Fishermen will appreciate the many opportunities all around Mayfair. Some popular spots include the Pensacola Bay Bridge and Pensacola Beach Pier. These are also good wildlife observation areas, and good places to simply stroll and take in the sunsets. There are several marinas at the north end of Escambia Bay. For special trips, deep-sea fishing charters are located near the harbor. The state parks along the Gulf provide further options, and are also popular with kayakers and canoeists.
