Gazing upon Fort Matanzas National Monument amidst all this natural beauty, it’s hard to imagine this was the site of conflict for land and power in the new world. Learn more about the fascinating history of the Spanish as they battled the French, British, and the United States which took possession of the fort in 1821. The interpretive ferry trip to the fort will inform and pique your curiosity. At the fort, stop at the Visitor Center, walk the nature trails and enjoy the re-enactments. Free entrance, and the ferry ride, (first-come, first-served) is free as well. Donations are accepted.
