  • Loved wandering the fort. Gorgeous location. Covered under the CA Historian Pass. Very nice employees, not too many visitors on the Sunday I stopped by. I'd come back and try to hit the tours. Fascinating history and beautiful construction.
  • stopped here as we are native Californians and really knew nothing about it. Was a very unexpected day, had a great and informative time, grounds are amazing and the views are incredible. One of the most informative places to learn early California history, and the admission price was beyond reasonable
