In my opinion, the boat ride over to Fort Sumter was the part I enjoyed the most. Unfortunately, like others have stated, there really is not a lot left to the original fort. As I appreciate Fort Sumter's history, I was not impressed by the reconstruction of the various parts that stand there today. A ranger gave us a brief overview of the history of Fort Sumter and then sent us off to explore the rest of the fort on our own. The Museum was okay. I did enjoy seeing the original flag the flew over Fort Sumter but other than that, nothing too special. More information at the entrance. I'm glad that we had the experience, although we probably wouldn't go again anytime soon.
