Violet Sky learning to Cha Cha in Pensacola, Florida

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

Violet Sky has had a life long passion for adventure! Growing up in Michigan and spending time traveling to over 31 states on family vacations by her eighteenth birthday gave her an appreciation for the open road. After finding the most beautiful beach she has dedicated her home port to Panama City Beach, Florida.
