Because Ferry Pass and Pensacola are likethis(imagine two fingers wrapped around each other), a lot of the neighborhoods in Ferry Pass may or may not be considered by some to be also part of Pensacola. Some travel threads also talk about Ferry Pass as a neighborhood in Pensacola for lack of a better term, because of Ferry Pass's CDP status. Think of Ferry Pass as an unofficial neighborhood of Pensacola.
