Fort Caroline National Memorial and Fort is a nice place to explore. Very nice walking paths, a view of the St. John River and lots of history to explore. The fort itself is amazing. It's like walking back in time, with ancient ovens, fort walls,...More
We took this detour on our drive from Jacksonville to Orlando. It didn’t add too much time to our trip. We went expecting to see a monument but the actual fort is there. There is a bit of walking involved so I wouldn’t recommend doing...More
