Historic Forts

Visitors to Pensacola and Perdido Key can explore the ruins of ancient wars at historic forts, walk in the footsteps of settlers and soldiers long past at historic sites and stir up the occasional ghost at the lighthouse. There are endless sites and stories to explore.

Set one or more kids loose and they will eventually build a fort and stage an imaginary battle. It’s in our nature to explore, build and protect. That’s why millions of people are drawn here every year to delve into our history. There’s something about touring old military forts and historic homes that speak to us as humans. Sometimes when we learn how our ancestors lived, we learn something about ourselves.
