Famed American writer and naturalist, Henry Beston so sagely stated “the three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.” Few places can offer the opportunity to experience earth’s harmonious melodies quite like Florida’s Gulf Coast. And, Travelocity’s Pensacola vacation packages can put you right in the heart of nature’s trifecta of triumphant tones. Drift into sweet slumber to the pitter-patter of raindrops tapping against the window pane of your beach-side cottage. Let the breeze be your soundtrack while you explore the Yellow River Marsh Preserve State Park. And, allow the rhythm of the waves crashing upon the sandy shore to serve as the backbeat for your sun-soaked daydream afternoon. The sounds of your vacation in Pensacola will transport you to a simpler time—a time when nature was uncompromised by man’s interference, a time when the only interrupting noise was the chirp of a songbird or the voice of your loved-one whispering sweet-nothings in your ear. And, when you bundle your travel and accommodations together in one of Travelocity’s Pensacola package deals, you might also hear a faint sound of “cha-ching” as your eyeballs turn into excited dollar signs.

After you’ve netted your catch, unwind with a cocktail on the balcony of your oceanfront guestroom.
While the bill excluded half-bloods and Indians already living in white communities, they went "underground" to escape persecution. No Indians were listed in late 19th and early 20th century censuses for Escambia County. People of Indian descent were forced into the white or black communities by appearance, and officially, in terms of records, "disappeared". It was a pattern repeated in many Southern settlements. Children of white fathers and Indian mothers were not designated as Indian in the late 19th century, whereas children of blacks or mulattos were classified within the black community, related to laws during the slavery years.

Pensacola is home to a small (0.2% of city residents) but significant Jewish community, whose roots date mostly to German Jewish immigrants of the mid-to-late 19th century. There were also Sephardic Jewish migrants from other areas of the South, and immigrants from other areas of Europe. The first Florida chapter of B'nai Brith was founded downtown in 1874, as well as the first temple, Beth-El, in 1876. Apart from the Reform Beth-El, Pensacola is also served by the Conservative B'nai Israel Synagogue. Paula Ackerman, the first woman who performed rabbinical functions in the United States, was a Pensacola native and led services at Beth-El.
