I was stationed here 2001-2002 for Ava school, and it was a great place to live, and it's nice to visit. There's beach access, a light house, museum, golf course, and a camp ground I practically lived at on weekend liberty.

Plenty to do, start at Fort Barrancas (a fully restored fort) then the Lighthouse and end the day at the Naval museum. A worthwhile fun history lesson that will make you appreciate the sacrifice of so many.

Pensacola Lighthouse is the perfect place to look out across the entire area and see way out in the Gulf. Best place to watch the Blue Angels practice. Rich in history for those who want to study more about lighthouses.

I have visited here twice and it is superb. Plenty to see and do. If you have any interest in anything Naval then this is a must. Please make sure you bring I.D with you as security is tight and without it you will not be allowed in.

This was so interesting. I can't believe they can put so many airplanes under one roof! We went in the flying simulator also. That was fun and reasonably priced. I'm just sorry we missed the blue angels performance. The lighthouse was great too and the view from the top was magnificent. Well worth the time to go see both sites

We did not know what to expect but found some interesting things. The lighthouse was attractive and signs about fliers from the area including Amelia Aerhart . Old barracks from WWII were interesting to see.

I've been waiting along time to come here. A happy and sad time watching the Blue Angels practice without Captian Jeff Kuss on their second practice without him. My daughter and I really enjoyed the 3-D simulater. We will definetly come back here again.

The base was clean & organized. Trails were marked very well. Lots of places to bike with little kids, jog, walk, etc... Maps were accurate. Beaches were fantastic! Not at all crowded.

This place was fascinating and full of history. Great place to visit on a rainy day. Expect to spend 4 hours there to see it all. Thought the 3D rides and movies were a little pricey for what you got -- a 5 to 7 minute experience at most.
