    Make sure you type in correct wording listed in this review for the correct GPS location. We just typed in national naval museum and it took us to the wrong gate. I assumed it would take you to the correct West Gate.
    Wasted 30 mins between waiting in the line at the wrong gate + driving 12 mins around to the correct west gate side. Make sure GPS says NAS Pensacola West Gate. Do Not type or select the suggestion of National Naval aviation museum directions. Needs to say NAS Pensacola West Gate only.

    Have ID ready. They might search around vehicle or even background check you for entry.

    A lot of interesting aircraft to see and aircraft carrier info. They have captured WWII German and Japanese planes. I wasn’t expecting that, my grandpa served in the South Pacific.

    We stopped here before catching our flight home. It was worth it! The museum is well down with great stories and facts, especially about the SPAR! The 177 step climb is challenging even for those who are in shape. Coming down is harder especially when others are coming up. The views are breathtaking. We enjoyed watching the Hornets do touch and gos on the runways. It was a memorable experience!

    Quietest ballgame I’ve ever been to. Packed house but no fan “noise”. Regardless, great team, great vibe, great time!!

    Very good place to visit! It was my first axe throwing & it was a very good experience. The Grizzly Axes associates were very customer service oriented & provided a very enjoyable experience. Will be recommending all my friends & family!

    I know Pensacola Beach is the go to beach for just about everyone who visits Pensacola, and for good reason, it's perfect for hanging out and do some people watching, plenty of bars, restaurants, gift shops, large parking lot, etc. But I feel that Johnson Beach deserves some love as well.

    Johnson Beach is quite the opposite of Pensacola Beach, there are some restaurants in the area, but it's not as walkable as Pensacola Beach. It's got white sands, clear water, a nearby trail, and large gazebos. This Beach is fantastic! Perfect for walking or going on a job.

    Johnson Beach is ideal for those looking for a more relax atmosphere, maybe do a little fishing, or celebrating a special occasion. I personally enjoy it a little more than Pensacola Beach, I love coming here to do a light jog, and sometimes just to be a beach bum.

    You pay a fee to park, I like getting the annual pass for $45, I feel it's well worth it. They also offer free public parking a few blocks before you hit the main entrance. It's not as big as the main lot just get there early enough and you'll have more luck finding a parking spot. Orange Beach is just further down the road from Johnson Beach if you want to try something different. Johnson Beach is one of my favorite Beaches, It's truly a hidden gem in Pensacola.

    Lovely Island! There are two fun dog beaches here. The beaches have a designated area that dogs can explore. Its an amazing stretch of land.

    The fort is a well-curated restored historic site. The visitor's center was closed when we were there, but the brochure and historic markers filled in the information.

    This attractive Park has a separate memorial to veterans of each American war. There is even a monument to war dogs! The Vietnam memorial is a small replica of the Memorial in DC. It is a well-kept Park with well-maintained monuments.
