We loved walking through Frederica and imagining life when it was a town. Well worth a visit. The setting is gorgeous, the information provided helps visitors see what life would have been like for the early settlers

We rode our bikes (beautiful ride) and walked the fort ruins. It's not our first time here but we get something more out of the trip each time.
