“Awesome!”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

Incredibly well preserved thanks to the unique construction materials as explained by the exhibits and part service guides. Really an amazing piece of our history, but not for those who can't walk or climb steps. Probably there's no way to improve upon that due to the very nature of the fort. Be warned, though, there's no place to sit to wait for the trains/trolleys, and it's quite a walk for the less than able bodied even to get to the ticket area. Also would require keeping a very close eye on small children as there are no railings or barriers around the top.

“Fun!!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We went for a visit on Columbus Day and everyone was dressed in period costumes. They set off the cannon and tell stories at certain times. My kids and my husband are history buffs and they loved it!!!!Buy a National Park Pass for $80.00 for the whole family or $10.00 for a senior. It is good for a year for all the National Parks and it helps to support them.

“Historical Gem”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Great views, wonderful tour. On the weekends they do reenactments. You can do it on your own, everything is labeled or you can take tour with a park ranger. St Augustine is full of so much history in its 450 years.

“Nice history lesson.”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

The fort is very interesting. You are on your own, although there is staff available for questions. Take your time and take in the history. Nice views on top level.
