Northwest Pensacola Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Northwest Pensacola community, a mix of apartment homes and family-type dwellings, is located in the greater metro area of Pensacola, Florida. The buildings and houses rest on landscaped lots that feature shade trees and native vegetation such as palmetto trees, Japanese honeysuckle and cabbage palms. The greenery is a haven for both visiting and area birds, including bluebirds, cardinals, wrens and starlings. Residents here like the fact that they live close to major area attractions, shopping, and restaurants. Interstate 10 runs adjacent to the community on the north side, making local commutes quite convenient.
The neighborhood is bounded by East Nine Mile Road on the north, County Road 297 on the east, and the Mobile Highway on the south and west. Saufley Field is accessible to military personnel in the community, lying just southwest of the neighborhood. The area sits close to a number of natural sites, including the Escambia River Wildlife Area northeast of the neighborhood and Tarklin Bayou Preserve State Park southwest of the community. Therefore, birdwatchers have plenty of opportunities to see the many water and land birds that visit the region annually. Hikers and walkers can cover a good deal of mileage as well, including the 50-plus miles of seashore along nearby Pensacola Bay.
Being close to the water allows residents to take part in a variety of sports, including swimming, boating and snorkeling. Fishing is a favorite pastime as well, given that Florida waters contain over 700 species of fish.
Other area attractions include the Pensacola Museum of Art, the T. T. Wentworth Jr. Florida State Museum, and the National Museum of Naval Aviation.
