I climbed to the top and what a view! It does have a reputation of being haunted, not sure why but it did give me creepy vibes lol probably because I knew the reputation beforehand. With that said, they do offer a Halloween theme visit around that time of year.

The Pensacola Lighthouse has 177 steps up to a fantastic view of the surrounding area. A highlight was seeing a couple Blue Angels fly over and then land. There is a railing on one side of the stairs and we were encouraged to use it as we walked up to the top. The top provides a great view of the... More

This lighthouse was a little different from others that I've climbed. There are no landings to catch your breath after a flight of stairs. There are however large windows that I used as resting places. After you climb all 177 steps you'll be glad you did. The views on the water side are fantastic. You can see part of Alabama.

Our daughter and friend were visiting this past week and they wanted to see the Lighthouse. It was our first time there but it was well worth the visit. There is a bit of climbing stairs, but it is just moderate effort. I am 67 and made it. The sights at the top were great. The people who explained how... More

This is a great visit to see the surrounding area from nice vantage point. Good history of the area. There are many stairs and only railing on one side. There are large window landing several stops along the way and a room for a tv show. These provide areas to rest or move out of way for others. It is... More

The best time to go is when they are having a haunted light house tour and they talk about all the unusual thing that happen in the light house.

I have been coming here for decades. Back in the late 70s and early 80s military personnel (or retirees) were able to reserve the household part of the Lighthouse. Myself, daughter and MIL stayed here a few nights. We never saw any apparitions but were warned they often revealed themselves to folks staying in the Lighthouse. We were probably some... More
