  • An absolutely gorgeous reservation. Naval live oak trees are one of the most beautiful trees. The whole place has been kept in it's natural state.  more »
  • I went here for a run, and enjoyed it. However, don't be fooled by the name. Most of the park is pine hammock, so there is little shade. The trails are sandy so running is a bit more challenging than ...  more »
  • The Jackson Trail in Gulf Breeze is a great day hike through live oak scrub with several views of Pensacola Bay - and of course, the giant sand slope (bluff) . Park by the Gulf Breeze hospital and sta...  more »

  • Interesting park that is both safe and dangerous! The walking trail and bbq areas boarder completely wild terrain with posted warnings about dangerous animals and poisonous plants.
  • This is a nice park that features a few smaller walking trails, an educational visitors center, a picnic area, and beaches. However, the park is smaller than I expected and was toured through rather quickly.
  • Wonderful park with great walking trails and visitor center which describes the park and the oaks that were used for shipbuilding. Very interesting and an enjoyable walk.
  • This is a beautiful place to walk around near Pensacola Beach. If you walk down the boardwalk, there is another Trail off the boardwalk that goes to an enchanting place in the forest that is like a dome made by the live oak trees. There is also an observation platform in that same area.
  • Nice walk along the Santa Rosa Sound in the beautiful Live Oaks ! Lots of picnic tables & beach area . Must go to visitors center to learn why & how this grove of Live Oaks existed ! Learn about local wildlife & see a few if you look carefully!

Where to stay in Pensacola

You'll find places to stay throughout Pensacola, but reserve a place downtown for the best local atmosphere and access to nearby beaches. Downtown Pensacola is on the water, and it features a collection of inns and bed and breakfasts in historical buildings and upscale tower hotels. The national chain hotels and motels along Interstate 10 by the Davis Highway and Pensacola Blvd. exits provide budget-friendly options within driving distance of downtown. It might be tempting to choose one of the budget motels along Highway 90 just west of downtown, but these reside in a rundown area. If you're arriving to spend most of your time by the ocean, stay on Pensacola Beach or Perdido Key, which sit just outside the city limits.
