The Naval Live Oaks Area, located on U.S. 98 east of Gulf Breeze, is open daily (except Christmas Day) from 8:00 a.m. to sunset. The Visitor Center is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and features a bookstore, exhibits, and a closed-caption 12-minute orientation film.

New exhibits at the Naval Live Oaks Visitor Center provide a wide range of accessibility features, including telephone handsets for audio description, a tactile model of an oak tree, and natural history objects.There are over 7.5 miles of trails including the 0.8 mile Breckenridge Nature Trail behind the Visitor Center. A covered picnic pavilion is available on a first come, first served basis and additional picnic tables are located nearby. Enjoy your lunch while enjoying the sparkling waters of Santa Rosa Sound! The Santa Rosa Sound shoreline is a wonderful option for people with small children who want to avoid the rough surf at the beach. The shallow, protected waters provide hours of swimming fun! Restrooms and outdoor showers are available.

A group camping area is on the north side of Naval Live Oaks. It is available for organized youth groups. This is a great campsite complete with a covered picnic pavilion, restrooms, and outdoor showers. Northside pavilion picnic area is open for reservations. Call 850-934-2605.

Food & Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

Whataburger This whataburger charges extra for drinks! Don't go!
Trigger's Seafood Restaurant I love the Bama Burger. Thick burger, blue cheese and topped with an onion ring. Comes with fries.
Fisherman's Corner Great "hole-in-the-wall" type place. Worth waiting for!
