Pensacola is the county seat of Escambia County in extreme northwestern Florida. Founded before St. Augustine, the City of Five Flags has flown the Spanish, French, English, Confederate and US flags during its 400 year history.

Timber and fishing flourished after the Civil War until the turn of the last century. The navy yard became a naval air station in 1913, and the large aviation training school helped the city's economy. As the timber and fishing industries waned, Pensacola developed into a regional hub for health care and retail, with an important manufacturing sector, a strong tourism presence and a broadly diversified economy. It's an ideal business location, with a cost of doing business and a cost of living that are both well below the national average.  Watch this video for more information about the city where thousands live the way millions wish they could.  Its about 9 minutes long but well worth it.  Enjoy.
