It is quite small but very informational and historical. I wanted to show the children what it was like to live back in the early 1900's. They seemed very interested. Worth a short stop!

I have four boys ranging in ages from 2-10. Two of which are boy scouts. My husband stopped as a surprise on our way to the beach. The Fort was really interesting with a lot of original pieces and homes in Christmas. There was a lot of family history as well. My husband and boys really enjoyed walking through the... More

The Fort Christmas Historical Park is a bit off the usual tourist turnpikes. It is about 10 miles off of I-95 and one has to be careful to watch for the signs which will direct you there. But, it is well worth the visit. A full size replica of the fort that was built, starting on Christmas day, in this... More

Fort Christmas is a free and unique place to visit.It is a short distance from the actual battle site fought on Christmas eve. The grandkids love going into the Fort and there are opportunities to see early residents of this area. The first weekend in December is "Cracker Christmas". This event draws thousands. It is a craft show but also... More

I had read about Christmas in Florida as a place where people went to send their christmas cards posted stamp marked "Christmas Florida". What we did not know about was Fort Christmas and it was a joy to visit. The re-built fort is full of history and artifacts that have been donated by local families and is full of interesting...

Great place for Florida history. The artifacts thet have are amazing. The stoves, clothing, all the utensils they use for inside and out. The farming equipment. The cabins are surreal. Like "Little house on the Prarie". It makes you appreciate what they went through for us today.

Great for history buffs, and for those looking for something free to do around the Orlando area. It is less than 40min away from downtown Orlando (counting traffic) and you only have to follow two roads, so there is no risk of getting lost. It s kind of like a replica of a colonial fort. They have cabins, artifacts, short... More

I want to go back when it is not so crowed. Some lovely houses to see and learn some Fl. early history. The crafts were homemade and very good prices. Enjoyed the fort very much and my husband liked seeing all the old guns and money. Sorry I wasn't able to get my Christmas cards mailed saying Christmas Fl. not... More

If you are tired of all the glitz of Orlando and theme parks take a 45 minute drive to Christmas, Fl and tour the Fort Historical Park. I found it so interesting to see how the first white settlers lived in this St. John's area. Also the army built this fort starting on Christmas day in 1845 and getting in... More
