Definitely worth a visit. Beautiful setting for and old settlement. Can get hot and there is a lot to see so water, hat and sunblock are a plus!

Our group of adults and children ages 5-10 enjoyed it. Lots of stops you can read or listen to info on your phone. Beautiful live oak trees with spanish moss. Probably should bring bug spray and sun screen though. Free activity.

While on St Simons Island we wanted to visit some historic sites and Fort Frederic National Monument and park. It is a very peaceful tranquil site. There is a Ranger station and a video to familiarize you with the landscapes.

Fort Frederica Nat'l Monument was a very nice surprise. Thought it would be a quick 20 minute visit, but spent over 2 hours there. Easy walking, great views and lots of interesting facts about the town and fort.
