Fort Matanzas

Have you been to Florida? There are so many things to do while you are in the Sunshine State. Of course, you probably would visit Orlando to visit Sea World, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World which you should. If you have more time, you should visit Saint Augustine, the Oldest City in the Nation.For less than two hours travel from Orlando, you will be in Saint Augustine. The road trip is fun and you will enjoy the view of the endless beach line along the scenic route and you might love to take a swim, go for it. Most of the beaches are accessible to public. The shoreline is absolutely beautiful. Before you arrive the city proper, there's a road going to Fort Matanzas National Monument.
The first picture above are canons located on the second floor then, there's the Soldier's quarter. It's very tiny.
Visitors were heading to the second floor of Fort Matanzas using the wooden stairway. The boat that brought us here is FREE to ride.
Fort Matanzas is located in a small island, a 1740 Spanish fort about 100 acres of salt marsh and barrier islands along the Matanzas River on the northern Atlantic coast of Florida. This place is operated by the National Park Service in conjunction with the Castillo de San Marcos National Monument in the city of St. Augustine. A historic place built to guard the Matanzas inlet.
If you love to see places associated with deep history, visit Fort Matanzas.
