See the original R&R barracks, along with many of the guns from naval ships that patrolled our coast line. Climb the Observations Tower and see all the way to NJ.

What a great historical tour. It takes almost 2 hours to experience it. Totally amazing the way this bunker was completely restored by all volunteers.

We took the Ft. Miles guided tour which included the Bunker. The volunteers were amazing - dedicated, knowledgable, and patient with us as we asked many, many questions. Touring Ft. Miles is free, however the guided tours are charged a nominal fee - our tour was only $3.00 per person.

We loved the WWII look out towers. The beaches and surrounding are much more low keyed than the boardwalk area further south.
