Blue Angels Homecoming Air Show Near Gulf Shores

Once when I was on vacation in Nashville the Blue Angels were performing there and actually staying at the same hotel where my family stayed. I was thrilled to see these talented airmen in the elevator. I am very spoiled to have the privilege of seeing them practice over the Gulf waters in Gulf Shores often, or watching their free practice sessions at their Pensacola home base which happens weekly during the show season.

By far the biggest and best show of the Blue Angels season is the annual homecoming event at the Pensacola Naval Air Station which will occur this year on November 13th & 14th. Admission is free, gates open at 8 a.m., the show starts at 9:30 a.m. and the Blue Angels are scheduled to fly at approximately 2 p.m.

My recommendation for a resort destination during the Blue Angels Air Show weekend is Meyer Real Estate's luxurious condos on beautiful Perdido Key, Florida located near the Naval Air Station. You're in luck since there is still a 50% discount on condo rentals during the Blue Angels Homecoming weekend (4-night minimum). Even if you can't spend four nights on the coast you can always use one of the free nights to either arrive early or stay later. See you at the show.
