This is a historical Plantation and the park service has made it easy to self tour and learn at your own pace. We didnt buy the audio tour, but others did and it sounded very interesting but more time consuming.

This is a very interesting place. Who ever designed the house was crazy because you originally had to go outside to get to any other room... The rangers guided tour was the best you learn so much.

Go to the Kingsley Plantation. You basically are taken back through old Florida to the Plantation. It is very interesting history and a beautiful area.
