History at your door. Located on the water, this is a relaxing and wellpreserved fort where the oldest city in US was protected from pirates and invaders. A must see!

We took the inside tour and it was worth it. Enjoyed learning about life in a Spanish fort and always love the cannon firing. Plenty of volunteers and park people here to give out information.

Real good place in Florida. Compared to the rest of the US it gives you a real sense of history as it is the oldest city.

They are $10, but if you have a Golden Eagle pass for the National Parks, you don't need to pay a fee.
