“the best view in town!”

Climb 177 steps up the historic Pensacola Lighthouse & Museum for one of the most beautiful views on the Gulf Coast. Built in 1859, the lighthouse is located on board NAS Pensacola. The top of the tower offers stunning views of Pensacola Pass (where Pensacola Bay meets the Gulf of Mexico), three forts, the Pensacola skyline and the historic Navy Yard. The fully restored Keepers' Quarters, built in 1869, is home to a museum and a gift shop.

Great views, and when I was there the man at the top was very knowlegable about the lighthouse's current usage along with a good bit of it's past.
The light is functional (check out how small the LED's are now compared to what the kerosene light looked like originally) and can be seen from 27 miles offshore. When you get to the top you have a nice view of training aircraft taking off from NAS Pensacola, and you might be able to see the Blue Angel's aircraft sitting on the tarmac.
The trip up the steps is a tight iron staircase, so if heights bother you, you may (obviously) want to stay downstairs.
