My family and I enjoyed Fort Frederica. There were lots of information about the fort as you toured it. Plenty of photo opportunities.

Very interesting place, lots of historical information. Be prepared to walk the grounds. I was concerned mostly about the condition of a lot of the information markers, very faded and in need of repair in some cases.

Great experience but remember the bug spray! May not be good for small children as it's itchy and lots of walking.
