4 Best Places For Sightseeing In Florida

1. Fort Clinch State Park

Fort Clinch State Park, located in Fernandina Beach, is a step back in time to the Civil War era. On the first Saturday of each month, reenactors bring the fort to life with a living history event that is sure to please even those that used to think history class was simply an hour to catch up on sleep.

Volunteers are cloaked in period dress and are eager to share their knowledge of weaponry with the opportunity to hold a carbine rifle, witness military drills, and see shots fired by military commanders. Behold as the skilled craftsmanship of a blacksmith shows how nails were made. Don’t miss out on the most entertaining of all, the medical practices! Fort Clinch offers camping, night tours of the fort, biking and jogging trails, and scenic photo opportunities. One of the best historical parks for sightseeing in Florida!

2. The Old Florida Museum

The Old Florida Museum in Palm Coast is located in the Florida Agricultural Museum. This museum is another great place to soak up some history in Florida. The opportunity to dig as an archaeologist brings to life the differences of artifacts and ecofacts. Members in period dress demonstrate Timucuan rituals, and lifestyle, in hands on fashion. Try to dig out a canoe by hand or get a tribal tattoo to show your Timucuan status. Learn about black history, pioneers, and Spanish settlements in Florida as well. Be sure to visit the gift shop which offers an abundance of various collectibles. One of the best historical museum for sightseeing in Florida!
