All those events sound good. As for Camping, the only 2 spots I know of is an area past Ft. Pickens that has campgrounds and over in Perdido, this one site. http://perdidocove.com/

There is also camping at Black Water River where you would do the tubing.

As for routes to take are you talking about from Houston to Pensacola? Please elaborate.

As for eating on the beach with the kids, Red Fish Blue is good for kids they have a little play area in the sand, also the Restaurant Crabs on Pensacola beach has a kiddie area too that they would love.

Thank you so much. Route I was referring too were while in Pensacola to prevent zigzagging. I am trying to make the best out o our 3 days there and organize them as much as possible. I know the lighthouse, Fort Barrancas and Naval Museum are in close proximity. If I wanted to add driving along the National Seashore 399 on what day should I include this? I also contacted Blackwater River about camping so we will camp there after tubing. Do you know any other place we can view the skyline besides the Lighthouse and Ferris Wheel. Once again thank you for all your help and time. Greatly appreciated😇
