Remembering in Pensacola: Veterans Memorial Park
Our road trip continues in Pensacola, FL, where we visit Veterans Memorial Park, which is full of stunning monuments dedicated to those brave men and women who have served their country in war.
Pensacola, Florida just seems to be full of interesting sights. After already checking out such varied attractions as an Abandoned Goofy Golf, a Graffiti Bridge, and a bunch of pelicans, we headed to our next destination: Veterans Memorial Park.
While it seemed to be a bit off the beaten path, this park is a shining tribute to celebrating the troops that have fought – and died – in the wars of our past. Easily seen from the road (mostly thanks to it’s full-sized helicopter located off to one side), this park is truly inspired.
Broken into sections, this park does a fantastic job of paying homage to each major war. From the Korean War to Vietnam to both World Wars, each section separately gives visitors time to reflect on each war.
With incredibly lifelike statues and inspired design, this park has everything from a miniature Vietnam Wall to some large Korean and World War II memorials that will blow visitors away. The helicopter is just one of the many standouts of this park, and something that shouldn’t be missed by any visitor.
We were definitely glad we had found this park, and we spent quite a lot of time just wandering around and taking it all in. The next time you’re in Pensacola, you should definitely take some time yourself and check it out.
