We rode to the fort on bicycles as we were taking in the sights of Copper Harbor. The fort is well kept with many pictures of how it looked when it was actively being used as a fort and today. We enjoyed just leisurely walking around seeing all the buildings. Short historical movies of the fort and how it tied in with the history of the area were interesting. Local residents dressed in period costumes were doing errands like carrying water, washing clothes or were in uniform. Beautiful scenery and few people around also made it a very nice experience.
