I had seen it from a distance several times, and was in no hurry to visit it. But the Pensacola Lighthouse was a lot more interesting than I expected. The lightkeeper’s house as a small museum and the tower both are equally special. There is a lot of history to the building and like all good, old landmarks, has a haunted tale or two to brag about. The walk to the top is not too bad and the view and breeze at the top make it well worth your trouble. 

When you finish with your visit at the National Naval Aviation Museum about a block away, swing by the lighthouse for a quick visit. We were there in October, so if you look closely, you might see a ghost on the second story porch.

The Pensacola Lighthouse reaches to the sky and is a great landmark day or night.
