If you love history and scenic views, then head to the Pensacola Lighthouse in Pensacola. Established in 1859, the lighthouse is a beautiful sight and a well-known landmark for the locals and tourists alike. A perfect spot for family, you can enjoy some breathtaking views from the top of the lighthouse, and do not miss on capturing the panoramic views. The staff is very friendly and helpful. To enjoy the ultimate view from the top, you will need to climb about 177 steps, so wear a comfortable pair of footwear. If you are afraid of the heights, you can climb up the stairs until you feel comfortable, and yet enjoy a stunning view. The area also features a small museum, exhibiting the local history of Civil War, US Coast Guard, about the lighthouse and more.

Pensacola Lighthouse Reviews & Ratings

  • Beautiful place to visit! Google maps won't take you to the right entrance since it is on a military base, so you do have to do some navigation yourself. The workers are friendly and genuinely love visitors!

  • Great place to go while in Pensacola. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Safety is also a main priority there. Make sure you wear shoes with a backing. I certainly recommend tennis shoes because of the steep steps. It took us about 30 minutes to climb to the top, take a few pictures, embrace the view, catch our breath, and go back down. The museum took about 20-30 minutes. Your time spent is based on you and the size and interest of your group. There is also a small play area. I will certainly be going back with my family next time. They price I believe was $4.00 for military (active duty member, retiree, or veteran) and $7.00 for all others. So to clarify, if you are AD and you bring your dependents, you will pay for one AD entry and $7.00 for each dependent. Lastly, if you don’t plan to climb the lighthouse but want to enter you still have to pay the entry fee to go beyond the gift store. There are places for you to have a seat while you wait on the other side.

  • Fun way to see a lighthouse and learn about it's history. The museum is really well maintained and informative about a host of maritime topics. $7 for adults is a little steep given there is a free air museum just down the street. I'm glad I did it though, the view from the top is fantastic.

  • Beautful old original lighthouse. Great views of the gulf waters and surrounding lands. Rough walk up 173 steps but well worth it. If this 68 year old senior man can do it, you can too. Enjoy.

  • I really enjoyed both the lighthouse and the museum. The climb was challenging but not terrible and as a plus the blue Angels did a show at the naval aviation museum across the street while we were there. Great visit all around
