1. Pensacola 

Starting point

An Irish pub may seem out of place in sunny Pensacola, but once you set foot in McGuire’s Irish Pub, you’ll feel right at home with its delicious Celtic cuisine. Savor the 18-cent bean soup, or enjoy their crab cakes or fish and chips. No pub visit would be complete without hearty beer to chase down the vittles. Choose from a wide selection of fine brews on tap.
