Not far from the National Aviation Museum is this treasure. It's a nice stroll through the past once you've seen the air craft of the greatest war power in the planet. The fort is pretty impressive when you look at how well it is built...More
I enjoyed exploring and learning a piece of American History. If you see this site, you need to go to the Advanced Redoubt too.
The $20 fee is good for a week and can be used at any Gulf Shore National Site. The tours are...More
Lot's of planes and history. We had a tour guide who had flown on some of the planes and shared his personal experiences. He made the tour great because of listening to someone who is able to answer questions! Help make this experience more fun...More
My husband and I visited Fort Barrancas not really knowing what to expect. We went inside and were completely blown away by the beautiful architecture. The arches were amazing and the layout was brilliant. After doing a pretty thorough walk through we went into the...More
Was on my to-do list for this trip, but NPS has really fallen off its game. Closed when I got there in the middle of the afternoon. You can still see a little from the outside. Filthy, green-mildew-covered park signs and overgrown grass are evidence...More
My family and I went to Fort Pickens and was given a brochure of the other places that my $20 entrance fee would cover for a week. Fort Barrancas was one of the places in the brochure but no where did it say that it...More

I went to both in the same day they are an hour apart and I would definitely choose Fort Pickens. The drive there is beautiful and worth the trip but a little long. Fort Barrancas is on a military base and a little hard to find. Fort Pickens is bigger with a lot more to see. As we walked around workers sweeping stopped on their own accord to give us some history. But if you go to Fort Barrancas the lighthouse and the naval museum are right down the street and we'll worth the stop. Barrancas has one of a kind architecture but once you have seen a little piece of it you've seen all of it because it's mirrored down every corner. Fort Pickens history was what amazed me so much and the fort itself is very interesting. Just check before you go because we missed the guided tour and they are the best.
You just some form of ID to get on the Base. The fort is free to walk around an spend as much time as you want. It's beautiful an lots of Kodak moments. Enjoy the rest of what the Base has to offer. If your lucky you can... More
You just some form of ID to get on the Base. The fort is free to walk around an spend as much time as you want. It's beautiful an lots of Kodak moments. Enjoy the rest of what the Base has to offer. If your lucky you can catch the Blue Angels as this is there home base, also the museum is free to tour at your leisure.
