My huband and I both enjoyed our time here. There's lots of ground to walk and see great views of the water. The firing of the canon was enjoyable. We liked learning the history. The views from the top were beautiful.

A nice place for the family that has the least expensive parking around. The views of the city and the waterfront complement this historic place

Best stop in St Augustine. $10 each for Adults / Kids FREE. Informative, Friendly Rangers. Got pics with Volunteers dresses as Spanish Soldiers. What a view of the Bay; watched sailboats going thru drawbridge. Cannon Firing was Fantastic!

Great attraction for the price. $10. Staff very informative about the fort and the improvements made over the years. A wonderful testament to the ingenuity and fortitude of the settlers of the "New World'.

This is a nice attraction with much historical significance in the life of St. Augustine. It's great for the family or just visiting by yourself. Walk and enjoy the attraction at your pace--be sure to go along the bay front near the cannons to feel what it must have been like for the men stationed here during conflict.

We walked all around and inside ($10 pp) this structure. Unfortunately is was a cold and rainy day, so we didn't stay as long as we would have liked. We will definitely return!

The old fort is $10 per person to visit it but it's very much worth it to learn the history. Make sure to check out the cannon firing every hour.

The view is awesome. Typical Spanish fort, similar to san juan in puerto rico, adding cannon demo would be great ( available in fountain of youth next door)

A little different National Park. Free for active military and disabled Vets. Not too strenuous for walking. There was a lot of neat facts and things to look at. This was and is a "must see".
