"So I left him in Pensacola / In a trailer in the sand / The man from the picture / Creased and yellowed in my hand / Creased and yellowed in my hand." Joan Osborne's "Pensacola"

A change in state incorporation standards in 1975 resulted in Warrington losing its status as a town, even though it has it's own post office and is outside city limits.

The Naval Air Station has it's own zip code, 32508, but it is located in Warrington, even though it's considered the Pensacola base. What isn't surprising is the unique renting opportunity that Warrington presents to it's Florida residents. You'll find a variety of areas and locations to give you exactly what you're looking for in your rental.
