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.

This is just down the road from Ft. Caroline so it is easy to stop at if already at Ft. Caroline. If short on time I would skip it.
