FREE Summer Fun in and around Pensacola

summer-fun (3)

 

I’ve spent quite a bit of time compiling lists of Summer camps and activities, festivals and fairs, and things to do in our area over the last few weeks.   I love sharing our weekly Round-Ups with our wonderful followers…and trust me, there is a LOT to do! But one question comes around more often than any other….”What about the FREE things to do?”   And trust me, I totally get it.  As a Mom of four…with one in college, one in high school and two starting school in the Fall, I am all about the FREE!  So, I decided to make a list of my favorite FREE activities that are happening this summer in our area.   They are in no particular order and there may be a cost for things like parking on the street or bringing along snacks….but the actual event or location is FREE.  Enjoy exploring our beautiful city on a budget and leave a comment if you have a favorite FREE thing to do that isn’t on my list.  ****As always, I recommend that you follow the links for more information and call ahead to confirm. Event information often changes****

 

Bands on the Beach

pensacola beach bands on the beach

 

Just about every Tuesday you can grab a chair and head down to Pensacola Beach for some great live music.  Pack some snacks and watch the beautiful sunset with the whole family!  Click on the link above for this summer’s schedule.

 

 

 

 

 

The Butterfly House and The Navarre Splash Pad

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a favorite with my Littles!  Just down 98 at the base of the Navarre Bridge sits this free and fun  getaway, perfect for the hot summer days!   We pack our lunch and spend a few hours there.   In addition to the butterflies and splash pad, there are 2 wonderful parks.  The Butterfly house does accept donations, but it is not required.splashparknavarre

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Naval Aviation Museum  and Blue Angels Practiceuntitled

Experience the magic of flight at the National Naval Aviation Museum! See over 4,000 artifacts and 150 aircraft representing Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard Aviation. Ride the flight simulators or catch all the drama and power of amazing IMAX films.  Spend a cool day inside the Museum and experience Hands-on-History!   And as a special treat, you can catch the Blue Angels practice most Tuesday and Wednesdays @ 11:30am CST. Click here for a link to the 2014 practice schedule.  A little side tip….leave plenty of time to get there and bring some form of shade if you can.  It gets HOT in the summer time.  You can’t bring coolers, but you can bring bottled water.

 

 

Evenings in Old Seville

evenings-seville-blog-004

If Tuesday nights on Pensacola Beach is not enough live music for you, then here’s a Thursday night second chance to sit outside in a beautiful setting, spread out a blanket and enjoy live local bands in Seville Square.    The 25+ year old tradition goes from 7-9pm, but get there early as space on the lawn fills up quickly!

 

 

 

 

Free Summer Movie Series @ The Breeze Cinema and The Ridge CinemathPVTE01FF

We recently tried this out at The Breeze Cinema in Gulf Breeze and I have to say it was great!  We arrived extra early at 9 am and the line didn’t start to form until about 9:15.  This theater has a separate side for the day camps that attend and they start filing in at 9am.  The doors open for the general public at 9:30.  Since you have to wait outside and it is HOT….I wouldn’t recommend getting there earlier than 9:15.  The theater did not fill up for this showing and the manager says he has not sold out yet this summer….but every week is different.  I do recommend going with a friend, however, so one of you can take the kids and get your seats, while the other waits in the concession line.  It was LONG. The kids pack is offered for $5.  We may or may not have smuggled some snacks into the theater.  But we bought some popcorn and a drink, too.   The noise was minimal and the all of the kids were pretty well behaved.   I can not speak for The Ridge, but the Breeze manager shows both movies for the week on Tuesday and Thursday, so viewers have a choice, which I think it pretty awesome. You can click on the links above for the schedules.  We will do this again this summer for sure!

 

 

Free Bowling 

thIC7887ZMSelect bowling centers and schools around the country are participating in the first ever Kids Bowl Free program. This program is designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time this summer.

Children whose age does not exceed a limit by a participating bowling center are eligible to register for 2 free games a day, all summer long, courtesy of the participating bowling centers along with the schools and organizations.  Click on the link for more information and to find the local lanes.

 

 

 

Hill-Kelly Drive in Movie Series @ Community Maritime Park

thLC76KI7M

This is another outstanding FREE Summertime event in our area.   Click on the link for info.  I know that the Sept date is the rescheduling of “Frozen” that was cancelled due to weather earlier this month.  You can also visit their Facebook page for more info!

 

 

 

 

 

Naval Live Oaks

IMG_0210You can click on the link above and read my full feature on why we love to take our kids to this “beach” area over the actual Pensacola Beach….especially on days when it is really crowded.   AND, you don’t even have to pay the $1 toll, so it’s truly FREE!  🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catching the Fireworks at Palafox Pier after a Saturday night Blue Wahoos Gameth2ZCY33LA

Our founder, Jenn, talks above about her family watching the awesome fireworks show that happens after the Wahoos games.  There’s even a video.  Timing the end of the game can be tricky, but she gives you some tips.   This is a fun way to end a Saturday evening with the kids.

 

 

 

 

Fort Barancas 

Fort-Barrancs-with-drawbrid

The Fort Barrancas Area is on Taylor Road approximately a half mile east from the Museum of Naval Aviation. The area includes the historic Water Battery, Fort Barrancas, trails, visitor center, picnic areas, and the Advanced Redoubt.   Admission is free and there are tours every Saturday at 2pm for the fort and 11am for the Advanced Redoubt.   Another wonderful opportunity to pack a picnic and have an adventure!

 

 

I am sure I am missing other wonderful FREE things to do in our fair city.  Leave a comment if you know of something I should add.  And let us know if you take your kids on any of these and how it is for you and yours.  As always, Make It Great!  xoxo Julie

Summer Guest Blogger- Charline Barger ” Writing a Coop List”

summer-fun

You have probably heard plenty about bucket lists, those essentials we
want to accomplish before we “kick the bucket,” such as visiting
exotic locales and jumping out of a plane. But, what about a list for
kids? We all know how quickly childhood flies by. Before we know it,
our little ones will be too big to do many of the things we consider
important parts of adolescence.

So, why not write a “coop” list for our kids, a collection of the
activities we want our children to experience before they “fly the
coop?” Below is an example “coop” list. Of course, each one will be
unique. You may include the moments you cherish from your childhood orth15H8HP7S
activities you think your son or daughter would especially enjoy.

Just as with a bucket list, there may be destinations (but probably
ones like Disney World in the place of the Greek Isles) and
experiences (think flying a kite rather than bungie jumping). Items on
your list might be skills for your little ones to learn, such as doing
a cartwheel or mastering the monkey bars. And don’t forget the small
stuff. A very simple task, like planting a garden in your backyard or
roasting marshmallows over a campfire, can end up being one of your
child’s favorite memories.

Why write a list, you ask? I don’t know about you, but I don’t get
anything done without a list and checking those boxes off will feel
satisfying for both you and your child. Bring your kids in on the fun
and you may be surprised by their contributions. Sure, you have plenty
of time before they will fly off from your coop, but you want to be
sure to have those fun, youthful adventures now. After all, very few
twenty-year-olds want to go rollerskating with their parents.
