City in extreme northwestern Florida. It feels more like Alabama more than Florida. The eastern part of town is where the rich and middle-class people live. The west side is the ghetto.
Currently the poorest city in Florida.
Man 1: Are you sure that we are in Florida?
Man 2: I don't know, we may be in Alabama.
(Man 2 sees a sign saying Pensacola, FL)
Man 1: That answers my question

The only place where you can be bored and entertained at the same time. Rich kids live over near Ransom and Tate, poor kids live near Brownsville.(The worst part of town ever) If you grow up here, you know where to go and where not to go. But if you're hungry and a teen, What-A-Burger is the best place to grab a bite to eat and socialize. :
Pensacola, party your ass off!

The first city settled in Florida; was blown away by a hurricane (surprise) and later rebuilt.

Is as of this writing currently preparing to be blown away by yet another hurricane. (Dennis).

Nobody will miss it much when it's gone.
