We have been to almost every Roosevelt home, so it was good to check this one off the list. It is a little out of the way, but was well worth the effort. We are always struck at how small Roosevelt built his homes. It...More

We enjoy finding sites that present a complete view of history, and this one fits the bill. While we expected to visit the house itself, the museum was a surprising addition, and well worth the visit. The house where FDR stayed is left very much...More

All employees at FDR Georgia State Park were excellent. Museum had great displays. Favorite was a display with 2 tubes. One had regular water temperature and other warm Springs. It was low enough for young children or wheelchairs. More amazing things many showing devices invented...More

The little White House is very spartan. I kept trying to imagine our current President being at all happy staying there. I failed. The museum has a number of very interesting exhibits. The staff seemed very well informed. One staff member told me that he...More

This is a pretty place and among other things remarkable for its smallness. It would take a structure more than ten times the size of the Little White House just to house today's security detail. I cannot conceive of any president during my adult lifetime...More

This was a stop well worth our time. The museum is really a lot more than I expected. I highly recommend making a day trip to see this museum and then do check out the original pools.

The pools that were heated by the Springs are closed, but you can visit them. The actual Springs no longer are visible at the pools but are still there in the area.

A week driving the Keys - What to do? (9 Replies)
My husband and I are planning a trip to the Keys during the last two weeks of October. I’d like some suggestions about things to see/do. We’re in our late 40s and are no longer party people :). We’re more interested in nature (especially things in and around the water), history, and culture now. The plan is to fly into Fort Lauderdale on a Friday evening or Saturday morning and drive to Miami for Cuban in Little Havana. Should we visit South Beach to check out the Art Deco District?...More

Hey 'Bama, Maybe in a while you could write a trip report so others can benefit from your fresh input (where you stayed, the room details, what you ate, what you did, anything to avoid). Glad you had a good trip, come back soon.

We have been to KW many times over the last several years. This will be the first time we are taking my 13 y/o son, along with some other family members and friends, which include two other 13 y/o's. We'll definitely go to Mallory Square. My son will love the entertainers. Also thought about lunch at Schooner Wharf (mom needs a fix ;o) and breakfast at Blue Heaven. We are also considering the Sunny Day's snorkeling charter. After that, not sure what to do ... these are some ideas I had: ...More

Also consider The Lighthouse and the Butterfly Conservatory. A Ghost Tour might also be fun for them.
