My Love of Fort Monroe – Post #2


My previous blog on Fort Monroe was highlighting the great history behind this former Army military installation. Today, I wanted to highlight the pristine natural beauty that families now can enjoy.


From the calm waters of the bay and beaches with lifeguards during the summer, to the sea wall for long walks or a run, to the fishing pier, to the marina, to the RV campgrounds, to the inlet water for windsurfing, there is something for everyone to enjoy the great outdoors at Fort Monroe.


In addition to visiting the Casemate Museum, attending the weekly outdoor summer concerts at Continental Park and other special events during the year, there is so much history to enjoy inside and outside the moat.


There are several places to dine including The Deadrise Restaurant upstairs at the Old Point Comfort Marina, a wonderful waterfront view in the formal dining room at the beautiful Chamberlin offering dinner and brunch options and also dining options at Paradise Beach Club. There is also my favorite brewery, Oozlefinch Brewery overlooking the inlet water!



Make Fort Monroe your choice to enjoy “the view”!
