History of Pensacola

Pensacola has a history that stretches back 450 years, which means there’s much more to experience than just the spectacular natural sights. If you’re a history buff who likes nothing more than a battle site or the architecture and museums of one the first European settlements in the New World, there’s enough to keep you informed and entertained for at least a couple of weeks.

The Pensacola Bay Area is home some fantastic historic forts, many of which are still standing. Fort Pickens on Santa Rosa Island, Fort Barrancas on the Pensacola Naval Air Station and Fort McRee in Perdido Key are three of the best you can still visit. All three of these forts remained in use through WWII and are open for the public to explore.
