A Couple More Pensacola Bay Area Itineraries

450 Years of History – Pensacola’s Historic Downtown
Visitors are whisked back to the time of Spanish explorers, seafaring men, brightly dressed Creole women, and Victorian ladies as they explore over 450 years of history. Take a stroll and discover remnants of early colonial military life in Pensacola that includes portions of forts that existed between 1752 and 1821. Allow 3 – 3.5 hours. Stops along the way:

Visit the longest barrier island in the world, enjoy a ranger-led tour of one of the five most visited national parks in the United States and explore a pre-Civil War fortress. Enjoy lunch and shopping along the boardwalk. Join a representative of the Florida Department of Environmental Education for a hands-on-tour of Project GreenShores, a habitat restoration project. Here more than 400 local and migratory birds are often found basking placidly in the Florida sun atop 10,000 tons of the limestone rock that is part of a man-made oyster reef. Get an up-close look at marine life and learn how salt marsh grasses help create a healthier marine environment. Allow 3 – 4 hours. Stops include:
