Fort Matanzas

Hello Travel Tuesday travelers! How was your Easter Sunday celebration? Fun , I hope! Few weeks ago we travel to Castillo de San Marcos, here's another cool place to visit in Saint Augustine. Let us travel to Fort Matanzas which is less than 2 hours drive from our place. If you are visiting Orlando for Disney or Universal Studio parks, set aside a day and have a road trip to Saint Augustine. You will be enjoying the view of the beach when you travel the scenic route and it's absolutely beautiful.

There are so many things to do while you are in the Sunshine State. Of course, you probably would visit Orlando for the Sea World, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World but, you should visit Saint Augustine because it is the Oldest City in the Nation (USA).

Before you reach the old town, you will arrive Fort Matanzas first.

You will take the ferry ride accross the inlet and it's free of charge.

The picture above is the Fort Matanzas up close.

This is a wooden stairs, the entrance to go up to the observation deck.

That's one room served as the sleeping quarter in the watch tower.

Showing you the Fort Matanzas...

Ron and other guests waiting for us to come down from the tower roof.

I was at the tower roof. The view in 360 degrees was beautiful. I wonder what it is like to watch the sunshine and sunset here.

I took this photo while I was on the ferry.
