The road to the fort was washed out by a hurricane years ago and never replaced. Rent a bike at Pensacola Beach and ride the seven miles. There are places where you'll have to dismount to get through loose sand, but worth the effort. One of the more interesting old US forts I've seen.

There is so much history here. It's a beautiful area with hiking trails, fishing and exploring. We planned a few hours to be here but really could have stayed all day if we had the time. We walked the beach, watched fishermen catch red fish and sting rays. Exploring the grounds and learning the history was fun for our entire family.

This Fort is incredible; very large, easy to drive through, well kept, with plenty to see and do. There are numerous trails, several passing by coastal cannons and leading out to the beautiful beach. Give yourselves a few hours to take it all in, it's definitely worth the trip.
