I had no idea that there was so much history in that area, especially on an island. It was very informative and a beautiful place to see.

My kids love coming here. It's free and a great 1-2 hour long trip. Lots of history to learn about. Bring your camera there are so many great spots for family pictures with cool brick or wood backgrounds.

We enjoyed our visit but our daughter did not. I would recommend for families with older children so you are able to enjoy it more.

This was a very nice place to pass some time (a little over an hour) and learn some history of the fort. I thought everything was very well presented.

What a great experience. Fort Macon is definitely a great place to check out. The structure of the fort is amazing and the history is fascinating. Great place to enjoy alone or with your family.

I've been going here for years and I love it! Even during holiday weekends it hasn't been very crowded and you can't beat free parking.

To my knowledge there is no place to dock a boat to go and visit the fort. The Coast Guard base is on one side and open beach on the other with no dock.
