We love to visit historic areas while traveling, especially those in the National Park system. This was unique in the way it was built. The exhibits and presentations in each of the rooms were well done and informative. Get there early because it gets really crowded by late morning and for the rest of the day!

I was surprised that they charged admission to a federal park. The fort was interesting and the views from the top of the fort were very nice.

Well maintained grounds and facilities, with friendly, helpful staff. Very enjoyable and informative, with great displays and information available about the first Spanish settlement. Be sure to not miss the shooting of the cannon!

The Castillo de San Marcos IS one of the reasons you come to St. Augustine. This fort is over 400 years old and is in remarkable shape. You can walk around, in and through this old fort and see where they used to sleep, store gun powder and keep watch. There are pamphlets that walk you through the fort and tell you about the history and use of the fort. And there's even a live demonstration of firing old rifles. All this AND and incredible view! I'd definitely recommend spending a few hours here exploring this treasure.
