The Pensacola Florida day trips and one tank trips described on Florida Backroads Travel are all within 100 miles of Pensacola, which is on the far western edge of the Florida panhandle.

We figure that the average car can go at least 250 miles on one tank of gas. Smaller compact cars can go even further.

These round trips can be made from Pensacola with gallons remaining so that you can explore on your way there and back.

Here are some things to do and places to see within 100 miles of Pensacola.

The map below shows you some of the major towns and places within 100 miles of Pensacola.

Chautauqua Vineyards is in DeFuniak Springs. Both the vineyard, winery and the town are worth a visit. You will see how wine is made and be able to sample it. Then visit the old historic buildings in the town of DeFuniak Springs.

DeFuniak Springs is a quaint small town with many historic buildings not far off I-10. It was the southern headquarters of the famous Chautauqua Assembly of New York state.

Grayton Beach State Park has one of the nicest beaches in the entire Florida panhandle. You will be close to all kinds of activities, and can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, surf fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola has a huge display of vintage and modern aircraft. Exhibits and demonstrations show the history of naval aviation.

Panama City is an interesting larger town with access to some of the finest beaches in Northwest Florida. Panama City Beach has become spring break headquarters for college kids.

Pensacola itself is a fantastic spot to spend a few days. It is loaded with history and a lot of entertainment possibilities.

Seaside is a relatively new town that has become the model for "new urbanism", the use of people sized spaces, parks, walking paths and limited access to cars. It is on a beautiful beach, and can be a highlight of your Pensacola Florida day trips.

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park is another full service Florida State park with a fantastic beach, camping and all of the amenities you will enjoy with your family.
