People tend to check in during these times:
Coastal Florida was a major field of conflict as European nations fought for control in the New World. As part of this struggle, Fort Matanzas guarded St. Augustine’s southern river approach.
Its free and a great piece of history
Small, but interesting, worth a quick visit.
One of the best tour sites around St. Augustine! Boats leave on the half hour. FREE!
Ferry leaves on the bottom of the hour. Do the nature trail (10-15 min) to kill time.
Spectacular views with a nice ocean breeze.
Climb the ladder up to the roof. It's a great view!
Probably the prettiest place I visited in all of the St Augustine area.
Be sure to take the ferry ride across the inlet.
See the horned grey owls. Worth the stop.
Awesome free national park... donate some $ in the visitors center & enjoy learning about a national treasure ... History dating back to the beginning of America
Something great and free that the whole family can enjoy. Great pictures can be taken on the beach to get onto the ferry and from the grassy areas surrounding the fort.
Free ferry ride to Fort Matanzas, built by the Spanish in the 1700s
