Visit Pensacola is excited to share that Pensacola was recently ranked #96 in Resonance Consultancy’s America’s Best Cities of 2023 and Pensacola is the smallest city named in the Top 100 list. As leading advisors in tourism, Resonance Consultancy conducts extensive research on the rise of cities, key trends, and factors that shape cities as desirable places to live, visit and invest in order to decide on their ranking.
Pensacola was described as a “pocket-sized secret,” highlighting the destination’s rich history, southern hospitality, white sand beaches, unique architecture, and more. Alongside it’s Best City ranking, Pensacola was also ranked #73 in the Sights & Landmarks subcategory, #60 in the deep Place category, and #22 in the Outdoors subcategory.
“Being chosen as one of America’s Best Cities is a great honor,” said Darien Schaefer, President and CEO of Visit Pensacola. “This accolade helps to solidify what we Pensacolians have long treasured, that while we are amongst some of Florida’s smaller cities, we have so much to offer to our community and to our visitors. Beyond our historical namesake serving as America’s First Settlement, we also serve as the western gate to the Sunshine State and a premier destination for visitation in Northwest Florida — offering white sands, warm emerald waters, endless adventure, a remarkable history, and unparalleled hospitality across all fronts.”
