Nice little Fort. The ferry was out of service still so we only got to see from the other side. Loved the trees there. Got pictures! Surroundings were nice. They have a walking trail, but did not go on.

My Husband and I visited Fort Menendez just out of curiosity. Upon entering the gift shop, we were greeted by a friendly face and offered a tour. We absolutely loved the guided tour. It was a fun and amazing step back in history.
