NAS Pensacola offers the Avaition Musuem, Barrancas National Cementary, and an IMAX theatre.

Local and would burn a day.

A drive on Secnic hwy is a nice thirty minutes.

A drive through old pensacola historic district is fun to see the homes, the district is marked with special signposts.

Drive from Pensacola Beach to Navarre on the beach road is about as scenic a beach ride you will ever find.

Welcome and have fun!

Pensacola Beach...

I agree with everything the poster above said....make sure you visit the beach if its a nice day out.... Casino beach at the huge pier would make a great pic to take

How about renting a canoe and paddling down the blackwater river?

Just returned form the Naval Air Station. If the Blue Angles are there, a must see- and must get there early- I recommend 7:30 and we took our bag breakfast. The museum can take a day for sure. Free, and the trolley ride was free as well. Also, the Lighthouse is excellent- and they were working on making it even better when we left. We went to Ft Barranacas (sp?) and found it very interesting, then went to the National Seashore for Ft Pickens. Also went to Big Lagoon State Park. Look out was pretty cool there, and it looked like they rent kayaks there sometimes? Then went to the other side of the national Seashore and had a great pre-sunset walk there.
