We took advantage of the free entrance to a nearby national park a couple weekends ago…
We picked up Junior Ranger handouts at the visitor center for each of the kiddos…these were basically scavenger hunts designed to help you learn more about the fort during your visit.
Ds10 thought that cannons were pretty cool.
We even got to witness a reenactment of the cannon being fired off…
Yes, they really fired the cannon…that is real smoke, but they didn’t use a real cannon ball .
The kiddos had fun exploring the fort and finding places to escape from the sun.
Dh and I hadn’t been to Ft. McHenry since we were kids…it was quite a learning experience for us too.
