Pensacola Lighthouse#6 in Best Things To Do in Pensacola
The Pensacola Lighthouse was established in 1859, but these days, it serves as a history museum and offers a tremendous view of the Gulf Coast. What's more, it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors can climb the lighthouse's 177 steps to take in the incredible vantage point and take a peek inside the old keeper's quarters – now called the Richard C. Callaway Museum. Inside the museum, travelers can brush up on their U.S. Coast Guard and Civil War history, as well as the history of the lighthouse itself.
Recent visitors said they learned a lot from the history exhibits at the Pensacola Lighthouse, and they also say the views of the Gulf, Fort Pickens and the Intracoastal Waterway were amazing.
Admission to the Pensacola Lighthouse costs $7 for adults and $4 for children. Seniors and those in the military are also charged a discounted rate of $4. The lighthouse is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., except for major holidays. You'll find it on the Naval Air Station Pensacola military base, and as such, you'll need to be prepared to show a valid driver's license and perhaps a second form of ID as well, including a passport, social security card or voter's registration.
