Our visit to Ft. Menendez was fabulous. We lucked out and got Senior Armando as our guide. He was fabulous. The historical content was fascinating and fabulous! We LOVED all the hands-on opportunities. Both the adults and kids learned a ton and had a really great time. Ft. Menendez is a bit out of the way, but it is a... More
