LODGING:
 
Currently, due to Hurricane Damage, the Gateway Inn is undergoing repair/renovations. Our hope is that construction is Finished and we can get onbase quarters for those who are eligible.
 
We’re working on lodging just outside the base. We’re hoping to have a large room available for us to gather and have fellowship.
 
We’ll have more information on lodging as we get into a timeframe where base personnel can give us rates and rooms.
 
 
 
PRICE:
 
We’re working on keeping the cost as low as possible. We’ll have more info on individual pricing once we can meet with the vendors. We’re hoping to keep costs low so that everyone can attend.
 
 
 
ALTERNATIVES:
 
One of the issues we’ve discussed is the fact that we’ve done Pensacola before. Some of you may not be interested in Golf or touring the museum. Been there done that!! Here are some alternatives that we’ve discovered to make the visit different. If enough of you show an interest, we may be able to set up a group tour (looking for a volunteer to help coordinate…HINT, HINT 🙂
 
 
 
Uninhabited Island Kayaking Adventure $61.54
 
Ghosts and Graveyard Tour of Pensacola $25.00
 
Hop-on Hop-off Tour in Pensacola From $30.00
 
Red Light District Tour of Pensacola From $30.00
 
Downtown Walking Ghost From $15.00
 
Pensacola Scavenger Hunt: Pensacola Adventure From $12.31
 
Walking Pub Tour From $21.11
 
 
 
If you’ve done other fun things in Pensacola, let us know and we can add them to the list.
 
 
 
Finally:
 
Please bear with us as plans could change based upon Lodging and other vendor’s availability. After all, we’re still dealing with the aftermath of last year’s hurricane damage and COVID-19.
 
 
 
We will keep everyone updated as things progress.
