One of the first places I visited with my future wife back in the mid 70s. We still go back. You go for the view which is on a bluff overlooking the St. Johns River. Historical!

We made a quick stop to check this place out while we were visiting Fort Caroline National Memorial. It was a great opportunity to take pictures of the island.

We were at fort Caroline and saw the sign for this monument and decided to give it a try. Great view of St. John's River. Won't spend a lot of time here but worth a quick visit while you are in the area.
