Fort Monroe - Fort Monroe National Monument

41 Bernard Road

Fort Monroe National Monument spans the American story through the 21st century: American Indian presence, Captain John Smith's journeys, a safe haven for freedom seekers during the Civil War, and a bastion of defense for the Chesapeake Bay. A public planning process will determine future public services and programming at this new national park with a centuries-old tradition.

Beautiful park like setting is a great place to live and play. The setting is great to take the dogs out there for a walk or just go for a run on your own. Lots of history and natural scenery combines to make one of the best places to visit or live in the area.

Such a beautiful historical place for the family. Beautiful quite beach area! If you enjoy walking, try walking the sea wall! It provides a beautiful view with along with the fresh air. The Fort has a great museum known as the Casemate. This place is great for a swim, picnic, date day, a walk, a history lesson, or a a great photo op!

This historic site is beautiful, and so rich in history! Ft. Monroe's Case Mate museum is a great glimpse into the history that this place still holds. Access to parks and beach make it a great place to visit, and with security and police forces on the base makes it a fairly safe place as well.

This is a great place to get out to see some of our history as a nation when it was in great turmoil. The work that went into this place is absolutely stunning! A great day trip!

Great place to visit and look around. My husband and I took our wedding pictures there. Such a beautiful historic place plus they have fireworks on the 4th of July.
