I need to fly into Pensacola next week for work. Have a sister who lives nearby and instead of flying home right away the next day I am going to take a looong weekend and spend some time there.

Have a motorcycle rented for a couple days and am looking for idea destinations to make a couple of separate day trips...

Looking for ideas of places to ride to, spend some time and return back.

Points of interest, museums, historical areas, etc...
Looking primarily to ride with a destination as a an excuse.

...what recommendations do you have... 200 to 300-ish miles.

Do a Google search for `Pensacola tourism' and read on.

Not to be missed: Wenger museum at Pensacola Naval station.
It is a display of the US Naval Security Group. The other silent service.

Check it out and learn a little bit about what us "******" did for our country.

At one time an advance pass had to be obtained to visit the museum.

I cannot find any mention of that museum online, Admiral Wengler is mentioned, but no museum. I was interested since my father was in the Army Security Association and I think he taught at the Naval group school at one point.

Could be because you are spelling Wenger incorrectly. The items in the museum were originally located at 3801 Nebraska Ave Washington DC which was headquarters of the security group and also a security station. It now is Homeland Security and what was (new name) the security group headquarters is at Fort Meade. Also see USNCVA.org. once there click on cryptologic command display and it will take you to a page that tells you about it.

Continuing the military theme - the AF Armament Museum in Fort Walton Beach.

The drive between on the island between Pensacola Beach and Navarre beach; it's part of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.
