This place was mesmerizing. I was glad we took a detoure through the golden isles, or we would have missed it. The drive to get to Ft Fredericka is beautiful, you'll pass old churches and houses. Once there it's just breathtaking. It's free to get in, and there's a self guided walking tour of the remains. Nice hidden gem!

We love to visit historic places and there are plenty along the Georgia Coast. Fort Frederica was a Colonial English settlement that pre-dates the American Revolution by forty years. The town of Frederica and the fort are ruins now, but the National Park Service has created a unique and fun way to bring the buildings, and those who lived there alive through the Jr. Ranger program
