Nice place to unwind, nothing to do and no where to go. A true vacation, don’t stay too long, cell service not that great.

As stated above the guides were most entertaining to us ... as we enjoyed their personable relationship with each of us.

Nice historical site run by the park service so it is well maintained. Lots of history. Self paced tour was nice. Can get hot so be careful. Right on the boardwalk so plenty of places around to eat and drink.

Yes, the story is in the Fort, and there is information also on a wall in the customs building across the street, where the information booth is. Quite an interesting story of young Alexander Hamilton! Much of the story... More
