Fort McRee

Fort McRee played a massive role in protecting Pensacola Bay and the deep harbor from external attacks and enemies during World War I and II.

WWI Battery Langdon

During World War II, Battery Langdon was camouflaged using soil to hide it from enemy aircraft. A large part of Battery Langdon is obscured by thick vegetation and sand berms.

Fort Barrancas

Located at Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fort Barrancas has a long history as a location of Spanish, French, and English-occupied forts. Today it is open to the public and our tour gives you an unmatched vantage point to discover the fort from above.
