    Pensacola is an amazing city full of historical significance, beautiful beaches, parks, and great restaurants. If I had to live here my whole life, I would not mind at all. New restaurants, entertainment centers, and homes are constantly being developed. It's becoming more diverse and open to liberal ideas, but there is still a sense of southern hospitality.
    Review Bellview
    The area I lived in was filled with criminals and delinquents. We moved away because it came to a point where the cops were in the neighborhood literally every other day, and we no longer felt safe. The rest of the city looks okay to live in, and I have had no problems in my current home, but at the other house, there were over a dozen moments at which our family feared of getting shot by our neighbors.
    Half of the houses are abandoned or foreclosed; while, the other half have terrible yard upkeep or housing appeal. That does not include the one percent of the people who are attempting to restore the neighborhood as it once was before. Surrounding areas have gratify and run down homes that make it even less appealing to get through to the neighborhood.
