Damp and somewhat spooky fort. Full of dark hallways and tunnels. Alot bigger than I thought and interesting history.

Fort Pickens has some very interesting history that comes alive when you walk through it. I loved seeing the stalictites grwoing from the brick arch ceiling. Tunnels and cannons and things you'll never see.

The beaches here are so clean and the water crystal clear. Beautiful dunes and beaches with that famous white sand. We also went to the little museum at the fort and learned about all the nature and animals of barrier gulf islands... This is a must see beach and park.
