Pensacola Air Show This Weekend
Planning on going to Pensacola end of this week. Can someone who has been on the air show weekend give me a heads up on what to expect crowd wise? Going with the in-laws and they are trying to make it sound like we won't even be able to go out and eat at night for all the people. TIA

They are pretty much correct. Beaches will be packed also. Hopefully the weather is nice.

Based off what my coworker told me about the practice he went to a few weeks ago, good luck. He said the NAS was pretty much completely packed.

I went two years ago. There are a lot of people but should be no prob getting in and out of restaurants. That place is geared for tourists.
Here are a few shots I took that day with my Canon.

Yep they are right. When we go we get to the beach at 8 to grab a spot and by the time the show starts the beach is packed. If you plan on going out to eat that night plan to wait a couple of hours. I reccomend McDonalds.

If you go be sure to go down the beach like you are headed toward Navarre. You can park on the back roads. The father you get from Casino Beach the less crowded the beach becomes (Until you get to Portofino). In terms of going out to eat...Call Papa's on Quietwater and order Pizza...crowds will be miserable eating out Fri & Sat.

For Penscaola Beach - it is somewhat limited but there are some places -

1 - Peg Leg Petes (Ft Pickens Road) - Headed West
2 - Flounders - Next to Circle K at Quietwater Boardwalk
3 - Hemingways - Quietwater
4 - Grand Marlin - Just before Quietwater (Nicer and somewhat pricey

There is a Surf Burger, Papa's Pizza, Hooters, Laguna's at the Quietwater Boardwalk.

Across the street (at Casino Beach) Crabs, The Dock, Sidelines.

Triedto go one year. Drove from Seagrove and turned around half way there due to insane traffic.

Can you see the show from Portofino?

Get there early as hell. Every year I feel bad for all the poor schmucks stuck in stopped traffic on the bridge still on the way to P'Cola beach an hour after the show is over. (from the comfort of my OT baller boat anchored in the sound ).

we took a boat from Ono Island once to watch it a few years back, it's pretty bad ass, watched it from the water though, beaches looked way to crowded.

Only way to go, IMO.

Some crappy pics from a crappy point and shoot from several years ago.







I go almost every year and never get tired of it. I may go to the Friday and Saturday show this weekend. 'Merica!
