The original temple, situated on top of the mound, was the residence of the leader. It was used as a temple for religious ceremonies, and as a place to direct village activities.

National Naval Aviation Museum

The National Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola is free to visit, and definitely an educational experience kids and adults will remember. It's the largest naval aviation museum in the world, and one of the most visited in all of Florida. Guests can see more than 150 restored aircraft from the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard Aviation. Flight simulators and IMAX movies let visitors experience military flight for themselves. The museum offers guided tours led by retired military volunteers, and a 20-minute trolley tour of some of the aircraft is also available. It is closed Mondays, so plan accordingly.

Pensacola Lighthouse

Get breathtaking views of the coast after climbing the Pensacola Lighthouse's 177 stairs. The top of the tower has views of Pensacola Pass, where the bay meets the Gulf of Mexico, three historic forts, and the historic Navy Yard. There is also a museum located at the fully restored Keeper's Quarters. The lighthouse was built in 1859, and is a great window into the maritime history of Florida. Visitors can also sign up for a "Ghost Hunt" tour or time their visit during the Blue Angels' practice, when you can watch the planes from the lighthouse catwalk.

There are height regulations for children, and requirements for footwear and other items, so check the website for information before you go.

Fort Pickens

This 1830 fort is the largest of four forts built to defend Pensacola Bay and the navy yard. It was also one of only four forts in the South that was never occupied by Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. Ten concrete gun batteries, including one right in the middle of the fort, were built after the Civil War, but more advanced weapons made these types of forts obsolete by the end of World War II. Guided tours of the fort are available, and there are areas for hiking, fishing, and camping nearby.

Where to Camp

Camp onsite at the Fort Pickens Campground, but be aware sites fill up far in advance.

With 27 miles of sugar-sand beaches leading up to the clear aqua waters of the Gulf, Panama City Beach has plenty of beach access points, two State Parks, and waterfront restaurants.
