  • Was stationed at Fort Monroe before it closed. It is a beautiful, hidden gem. Take the time to get off the interstate (after you transit the HRBT) and spend a few hours both "inside the moat" and outs...  more »

  • A new national park, but not a new museum. We stopped in on our way home from Williamsburg but we must go back. The place is far more extensive than we thought. It's The Who's who of famous historic n...  more »
  • Beautiful Fort! It is also FREE to visit! Great museum about all its history and amazing to walk around its walls.
  • Gorgeous National Park! Park inside the fort at The Casemate Museum. Take a walk up the Flag Bastion for a wonderful view of the bay and walk around the entire fort walls. Have dinner at The Deadrise, also on Fort Monroe, and catch a great sunset over the Marina.
  • I was stationed there from July 1968 - January 1969 and was assigned to the 50th Army Band, "The Continental Army Band." We played evening concerts at Continental Park and did what we called "March Arounds" inside the mote. The chief engineer for the construction of Fort Monroe AND Fort Pulaski in Savannah, Georgia, was Robert E. Lee. There is an historical marker in front of his home at Fort Monroe.
  • Outstanding in all the services performed throughout the civil war. Worth visiting
  • I was stationed at Fort Monroe in 1967 (Women's Army Corps) and I must say that my experience there was awesome. Anyone who was there during that time knows the fun we had as young soldiers. (Mary Frank)
