We spent a week in Pensacola, actually, we were staying in an RV park in Milton which is across Escambia Bay from Pensacola. While there we were able to get around and see a few things.
We visited New Orleans on our road trip in 2014. It was in January and was pretty cold at the time but we managed to get around to see a lot of the city. You can check out our blog article from that trip.
