  • Beautiful place
  • A walk through history is an apt description of the tour of Fort Warren on Georges Island. The Dept of Conservation and Recreation has done an admirable job making the Fort a viable site for tourism. The guided tours given by knowledgeable docents make the experience come to life with them describing the history in first person as though they lived it first-hand. Many parts of the Fort are open for exploration, yet in great disrepair. It would been nice to see a restored barracks of officers or political prisoners to truly see it "first-hand". On site restrooms and a snack bar were welcomed additions. The ferry ride to and from the island as well as the tour are all included in $19.95; a quick tour and round trip ferry ride we're completed in 3 hours. If I had more time I would have explored more.
