Villages at Marcus Lake Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Villages at Marcus Lake is newer community of affordable one- and two-story properties in the greater metropolitan area of Pensacola, Florida. The community is bordered by West Michigan Avenue on the north, County Road 453 on the east, Massachusetts Avenue on the south and Mobile Highway on the west.
Properties sit on lots with lush vegetation such as mimosa, flowering dogwood, saw palmetto, and hickory. Their shade provides relief from the heat on the long, humid days of summer when rainstorms are prevalent.
However, showers very seldom deter golfers in the community, who enjoy golfing at a number of courses, including the Green Meadow Par Three Course that is located directly north, and the Osceola Golf Course, which lies southwest of the area.
Nearby shopping centers and malls include the Barnes Shopping Center and Cordova Mall, both of which are located to the northeast off the Interstate 110 highway.
The Villages at Marcus Lake community sits close to Crescent Lake, a popular spot for fishing and boating activities. Families also enjoy visiting the Pensacola Lighthouse southwest of the neighborhood, and the Blackwater River State Forest, where they can hike and view area wildlife and plants. Local history buffs will find the Florida State Museum interesting, as well as the frequent walking tours in Pensacola’s historic district.
For a bite to eat, locals often drop by the Melting Pot, known for its chocolate and cheese fondues, or the End of the Line Café, a popular vegan eatery.
