Originating in the 1950s in Cuba, the Cha Cha has long been a popular ballroom dance. During my visit to Pensacola I noticed at the corner of Plaza Ferdinand VII there were the steps to the dance in the sidewalk square. It was a unique find in the midst of historic buildings and aged live oaks. Being that I had never attempted the Cha Cha it was a fun adventure worth a try!
Also nearby in the park is a statue to Andrew Jackson commemorating the spot that he stood while being inaugurated as territorial governor of Florida Territory. You can read about the statue at https://adventureswithvioletsky.com/2020/09/20/andrew-jackson-statue/
Thanks for reading and as always, keep on truckin’!
