Since it’s on University Parkway, commuting from Stillbridge to anywhere in the greater Pensacola area is easy. The Parkway is a major north-south arterial street that connects the neighborhood to downtown. Interstate 10, an east-west expressway through the area, is just a few minutes south of Stillbridge, and runs along the Gulf Coast.
Pensacola is one of the oldest cities in the country. The Seville Historic District in downtown was first settled over 400 years ago. It showcases the Spanish and French influences on the city, with its shops, restaurants, and the Historic Pensacola Village Museum. Downtown is a popular place to stroll and take in the architecture.
Getting to the beaches along the Gulf Coast is a vacation trip for most, but an afternoon out for residents of Stillbridge. Pensacola Beach is on a barrier island in the Gulf. Here, you can walk along the white-sand beaches the region is known for. The area also offers kayaking, fishing, and lots of shopping and dining. Tarkiln Bayou State Park Preserve, on Perdido Bay, is preserved wetland with a walking path. It’s one of the few places to see the rare carnivorous pitcher plant, unique to northern Florida, and dolphins feeding out in the bay.
