Fort Barrancas provides information about the military history of the area and is interesting to see for its building style as well as the beauty of its location.
Our teenagers learned more from this tour in 2 hours than in all the historical tours put together. Thank you Park Ranger David Ogden!
Stopped here after the Naval Aviation Museum as it's practically across the street and it's free. Been to a lot of these types of forts and this one is my least favorite! Not much to see and the steepness of the walk to get up to the fort and then down into the fort was tough unless you are in... More
I thought is was cool to drive onto the Naval Air Station to see this. Also visited the Advanced Redoubt which was cool because no one was there. Make sure to visit all three levels in the primary fort (the stairs to the bottom are a bit hidden).
The fort is really something to see. It's so big, you tend to get turned around. There really should be guides stationed around to fill you in on the history. It's just a quick detour from the Lighthouse or Museum, so it's worth the little time it takes to see it.
