Just beyond the Lewes/Cape May Ferry on the Delaware coast is a nature preserve and remains of a WWII gun emplacement called Fort Miles. During the summer season there is a nature center, biking and hiking trails among the beautiful dunes, ocean beach to explore, and the interesting remains of a fortification designed during World War II for protecting the Delaware Bay from possible enemy attack. Walk among the old barracks, read the informative signs, see the huge guns still in place, and climb to the top of an old military observation tower for a great view. A curious mingle of peaceful nature with war machinery, this is a significant nesting ground for various birds. There is a beach facility and during the summer a small restaurant. Costs $4 for in state residents and $8 for us visitors. Worth the fee! We received no maps or literature of any kind. Go online first before showing up to understand the lay of the land better.
