    Favorite thing: Beside christmas trees and ornaments there is also a fort in Christmas. When you are on your way to Kennedy Space Center you could consider a stop here.

    The fort here originally was constructed by 2,000 US soldiers on December 25, 1837. Because of the starting date the fort was called "Fort Christmas".

    The one you can visit now is a full size replica of Fort Christmas.
