Camping at the Atlantic Beach Campground near the Cumberland sound and Atlantic Ocean. There is a nice Boardwalk that takes you to the beach where you can find seashells and Priceless sunsets. The restroom facilities are clean and new. The sand dunes are beautiful.

A great tour of the fort and museum. The park is beautiful. We went searching for sharks teeth on the beach. Did not find any, but the hunt was fun!

This place is just beautiful with huge old live oaks dripping with Spanish moss. We stayed in our RV in the state park which is well kept and each site is beautiful under the oaks or on the sand dunes. Truly old Florida.

I'm sorry I didn't see the question sooner but I would say it is worth driving through. I enjoyed looking at the trees.
