I went to a reception here at one the ballrooms and was pleasantly surprised. I didn't know they offered such a nice area like that at San Luis.

Take a stroll and immerse yourself into the surroundings. Look back on the past with volunteer players interacting historically with each other and you. Feel free to ask questions and learn what is was like in Florida's past.

Wonderful venue and everything went perfect! We couldn’t fit everyone in our home and this was a great place where even the little ones could run around a bit without getting in to anything!

Great outing for the girls and I. They learned about some of the original inhabitants of Florida as well as the early Spanish settlers. Great interactive information from the volunteers. The blacksmith and apprentices were great.

Awesome 4th grade field trip! We drove 2 hrs to visit local museums. Other than it being a little hot out, we all enjoyed the history and the lessons learned. Staff did an excellent job being in character. Will definitely visit again!

We stopped at everything, talked at length to the docents and watched the movie. We were there a little over three hours.

There are no restaurants on site. There is a gift shop with snacks. There are several restaurants within a one mile radius. There is a Columbian Restaurant within walking distance.
