We did not take advantage of the beaches due to the cool weather, but we did spend the $6 park entry fee to see the Fort. The fort was amazingly well preserved and beautiful. From a kid (or adult) standpoint, there are all these underground passageways and stairwells to get to the various levels and walls of the fort, and the brickwork was beautiful. If you have kids, they will love exploring this place (just keep an eye on them, because there are not a lot of protective railings). The movie and the museum that went with this place are also worth seeing. And, you can see the beach from the fort, or walk out to the beach from the fort as well. In addition, do not miss walking (or biking or eating) in the little historic district of Fernandino Beach. Stop at the Visitor's Center in downtown Fernandino Beach first to get info on all of these things; the lady that is in there is very helpful.
