Beach/Ft. Pickens

Pensacola Beach is called an “Island Paradise” for a reason.  There are more historic stories and battles, ecological success stories, and tales of buried treasure than any other.  Retired teacher and current realtor, Nan Harper does a fantastic job tracing the beach’s development from a pristine wilderness to a Spanish colony and then become a battlefield and militarized zone before civilians got to enjoy it all.  Unique beach heros and specialties are described.  The tour also addresses fishing, ecology, and rip tides.  It even includes a walking tour inside Ft. Pickens and its museum.  Come see the beach like never before!  (1.6 hours)
