This has to be the smallest state facility I have ever visited. If you have 10 minutes you have seen the entire place. With that said, the view is spectacular over the St John's River and if you are lucky, a ship will pass by.

Short little walk tot he monument, love the boards that tells you what you are looking at from that point. Very quiet when I went. I could've sat for hours just enjoying the shade and the view.

Ribault Monument is the site where the French erected a stone column on a high bluff. This bluff overlooks the Saint Johns River. The Intracoastal Waterway is also visible from this location.

This is one of the more unique sites in Florida. The view from the bluff is one that is rarely had in the Sunshine state due to the elevation at nearly 100 feet. It is a beautiful view of the St. Johns River into the...More

One of the first places I visited with my future wife back in the mid 70s. We still go back. You go for the view which is on a bluff overlooking the St. Johns River. Historical!

We made a quick stop to check this place out while we were visiting Fort Caroline National Memorial. It was a great opportunity to take pictures of the island.

We were at fort Caroline and saw the sign for this monument and decided to give it a try. Great view of St. John's River. Won't spend a lot of time here but worth a quick visit while you are in the area.
