Pensacola Lighthouse and Fort Barrancas


Near the National Naval Aviation Museum is the Pensacola Lighthouse and around the corner is Fort Barrancas. We visited these both on the same day. The lighthouse charges an admission as does Fort Barrancas. The lighthouse was interesting and the lighthouse keepers home and the lighthouse itself were open to visit.

Some images from the Lighthouse:

We then went to Fort Barrancas which is situated and visible from the roadway.
