Nice exhibits and information about the seashore. This area is actually the headquarters of the National Seashore but is not the seashore itself so don't be disappointed. Gather your information, buy your pass and head to Pensacola Beach for the drive between there and Navarre Beach to see a portion of the actual Gulf Islands National Seashore Park. One of the most beautiful drives in the world.

This was a good park that is free to visit. There is a nature center where you can learn all about the Live Oaks and their importance in ship building including hands-on activities. A wood-planked path leaves the nature center and loops around through the Live Oaks. This path was easy to push a stroller and is wheelchair accessible. Another path of sand takes you to the shoreline where we walked while the sunsetting to see the bay. Taking the shoreline will lead you to a picnic area where you can picnic in view of the water. This was a clean park with an easy hike (or walk). The sand was compact enough to even push a stroller. What I liked most about this park was the fact that it's free, it gave me a better appreciation for the Live Oaks and it also contained several picnic areas/picnic tables and even a shelter house. It was shady enough that even on a hot Florida day, it would be a nice break from the sun. Highly recommend a visit here.
