The Gulf Breeze ZOO

This 50-acre wildlife sanctuary is perfect for families.

Reviewed By optiontrader - Englewood, Florida

The Gulf Breeze Zoo was a very pleasant surprise. It is spread over a large area with easy walking trails and even a miniature train that runs through a part of the property. The grounds and enclosures were well kept and the animals appeared to be healthy. A great time was had by grandparents, parent, and teenage girl. Admission is pretty healthy but our daughter and granddaughter got season memberships that were quite reasonable and would represent a savings if going more than a couple of times a year.

Reviewed By Kristle E - Houston, Texas

Its everything you want in a beach location and more! March was still a little too cold to get into the water but the kids still made the most of it. I would love to visit in summer. The beaches are clean. The life guards were super sweet and helpful.

Gulf Islands National Seashore

This 150-mile stretch of seashore, which runs from Cat Island in Mississippi to Santa Rosa Island in Florida, offers sparkling blue water and many beautiful beaches along the way.

Reviewed By Brenda R - Kaukauna, Wisconsin

We went through the park to get to Fort Pickens. It was a speed limit of 25 miles an hour for several miles. The dunes got pretty boring pretty fast, and you couldn't see the water much of the time.

Blue Wahoos Ballpark

Reviewed By just8keylimepie1969 - Pensacola Beach, Florida

The best minor league stadium! Looking over the water, with awesome seats all over. The food concessions have evolved over the years and getting better. Its not the best food it could be, but we try to eat before. The lines are very long at the beginning of the games.We would like to see more outside vendors for healthier food choices like fresh fish or chicken tacos.

Fort Pickens

Visitors can take a self-guided tour of this authentic fort active during the Civil War and later used as a jail to hold the infamous American Indian chief Geronimo.

Reviewed By Aurora09 - New Jersey

This is part of the Gulf Island National Seashore. It’s at the western end of Pensacola Beach. There is a $20 fee to enter this part of the National Seashore, which covers other fee areas at the national seashore as well. The beaches leading to the fort is beautiful, with snow white sand, and turquoise ocean. There is pavilion at the Langdon beach with amenities.

The fort itself tells some history. Many forts have never seen any battle, but this one has. Walking around the fort also gives a nice view of both the gulf and the bay. This is a good place to spend an hour or so as a change of scenery from sun tanning at the beach.

Reviewed By Mike G - Pensacola, Florida

Every sailor or marine that ever flew an airplan,trained at NAS .
It is also home to the Blue Angles which practices and puts on air shows there.
There is an air museum there that is spectacular and you could spend hours there original air boats to today's fighter planes.
The museum is free and has simulators that you can try out and displays depicting war time history.
Some of the planes allow you to climb in and tour them.
Not to be missed.

Gulf Islands

A historical area with beautiful beaches.

Reviewed By Ramblingman163 - Daphne, Alabama

Pick a day. Any day. The water will be gorgeous and the sand will be white. The breeze coming off the water will be just enough to cool you down in the warm sunshine. If it gets too hot, dip in the water. If it gets too windy, pick a bar or restaurant to relax in for a bit.

We head to the beach on a regular basis. Just to walk along the waterfront, or to people watch, or to have a quick lunch with a great view. It's one of the best reasons to live in this area.
