“A nice drive”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

It's a quiet peaceful drive through the National Seashore district. We were there on a drizzly day but still were able to enjoy a walk on the beach viewing the Gulf.

“Great views of the gulf.”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This was an unexpected surprise. The drive through the park is slow but enjoyable. It quiet and clean. Highly recommended to drive through this park even if you don't spend time in the water.

“Great views”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

This is a nice drive out to Fort Pickens. The charge is only $3 per person or $8 per car and at the end you can tour Fort Pickens. It is an enjoyable drive you need to take your time and not hurry. The views are good and there are several picnic and camping areas in the park. Great family place. Oh yeah the beaches on both sides are fantastic. Take suntan lotion.

“Peaceful and quite”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

After spending time on the noisy, busy, somewhat crowded part of the beach, it was wonderful to drive down to the peaceful, undeveloped area. It's good to have a combination of being at the beach AND getting away from it all. [There ARE bathrooms, however! ;-)]
