Visit the undeveloped land and shores of Gulf Islands National Seashore. The islands offer fun in the sun to visitors and preserved land for coastal species. You'll find the quartz-white sand and clear waters here. Stroll the nature trails to see forts dating back to the 18th century. Fort Massachusetts, Fort Barrancas, Fort Pickens, and Fort McRee are all on the islands. Each has its own visitor center and picnic area. For a longer walk, take the famed Andrew Jackson trail, part of a 64.4 km (40 mi) loop available to hikers, bikers, and cars. Head to Pensacola, the mainland city with a rich cultural and military history, to rent equipment for snorkeling, fishing, and boating. Many of the beaches feature restrooms, showers, and shaded areas. If you plan to visit more than one national park during your trip, consider purchasing an America the Beautiful pass that can be used at all national parks and federal lands in the United States.
