“Quick visit but pretty cool stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Beautiful park, neat fort with folks portraying life in the mid to late 1800's. Our visit was very brief due to weather and travel arrangements, but well worth a few bucks.

“History Lesson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Step back in time when you visit Fort Clinch. Actors dressed in period costumes make it feel like you've gone back in time. Very interesting & informative. A must see for inquisitive children & history buffs.

“History where you least expect it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Lovely and well kept, this fort was an unexpected treat. Beautiful hammock of trees, beaches and trails through the park lead to the fort. For a small fee you get a 12 minute video explaining the history behind its building, and then you can tour at will. We found the actors and park rangers very approachable and willing to share. Well worth checking out!

“good for history buffs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We loved this old fort, the views were amazing and the volunteers in costume were very knowledgeable. They stayed in character so you heard what it was like in 1865. Kids would love it.
