Watch the Video

I waited for the video and left there feeling such pride for our country. The fort is in great condition and enjoyed touring all the guns on deck. While I was there an WWII veteran's family asked that his casket flag be raised next to the other flag. It was an honor to watch another flag of freedom fly from one who had served.

I love American History, especially when its military related. If your a fan of civil war era seacoast batteries, this one is worth checking out!
Full of history & nature

This national park is chalked full of history that is well presented. Yes, there is a lot of stuff to see and read, but it's also like walking into history that you can interact with. In each of the buildings in the fort are things to see, watch, and read. It's an open enough space though that kids would have plenty to do. And besides the history, there's tons of paths and trails for walking or running. Also plenty of space to walk down near the water, even have a picnic lunch.

Great fort for history buffs. Not enough benches for the ones that need to rest inbetween walking. I was very dissapointed my husband could not enjoy because of this.
Oh Say Can You See?

Great place to visit. Historical significance can't be beat. The film in their visitor center is so moving. And when they raise the screen at the end to look out at the flag waving in the breeze .. it's time for goosebumps and tears!
