Florida Welcome Center I-10

August 26, 2016

On our road trip from Louisiana to Florida, we needed to stretch our legs and walk around. We stopped at the Florida Welcome Center at I-10 in Pensacola, FL. WOW! This welcome center was incredible!

As you drive up to the Florida Welcome Center, the first thing that you see is a huge plane statue. There are also a lot of other statues and photo opportunities in an around this welcome center.

There is also a turtle statue thing right next to the entrance doors. I took a picture next to because it just looks pretty neat. The turtles name is Myrtle … #Myrtletheturtle

Next, when we entered the Florida Welcome Center, the kids found a small play area that was perfect for them. They had been riding in the car for so long and need some playtime. Since the kids found some fun toys to play with, my wife and I browse around at all of the brochures and pamphlets of things to do in Florida.

After a while, we take a fun picture with the NASA astronaut statue. We also get some free orange juice and grapefruit juice from the ladies at the help desk. You have to love anything that’s free, right?

In addition to taking a picture with the astronaut, there is also a picture booth that has some fun Florida themes. Here are a few of the pictures we took.

Next we find the vending machines. They have an ice cream vending machine at the Florida Welcome Center. We decide that everyone needed a little treat before getting back on the road. We got our ice cream and take it outside to the picnic benches and enjoy some ice cream as a family.

Finally, it was time to leave the Florida Welcome Center. We get back into the car and continue our journey eastward through Florida. Here is a video that I put together of our time at the Florida Welcome Center so that you can get a better idea of everything that they have to offer here.
