The Awesome Forts of Florida that You Can Visit Today

I have developed an interest in the Forts of Florida since our recent encounter with the tiny winy Fort just south of St. Augustine. These are military sites you can find on the Florida Coast. Although some are not accessible by water, they are all open to the public with tours and museums.

There are twenty-three forts and military sites in Florida, seven in the Northwest, six in both the Northeast and Central Florida, and four in South Florida. These are places were you can find original structures, reconstructions, ruins, museums, or visitor centers.
