The highlight of the trip to Fort King George are the views across Port of Spain. The museum is just a couple models with many of the information sheets worn away or unreadable. Definitely worth a visit for the panoramic photos.

Definitely worth the trip up the hill because of the awesome view! The ground area is well maintained and open 24 hours. The 2 museums (history and art) are only open during business hours. There are several canyons displayed, gun powder storage room, holding cells and an underground well system can be seen.

Not much I can say about this. It's an amazing view of Northern Trinidad. It's quiet and peaceful up there. The only thing it might benefit from is a shop or something.

The drive to this location is very interesting as the road is narrow but it's worth the drive! The view of the West and Port of Spain is breathtaking. It's peaceful and I enjoyed it!
