Situated just a few miles north of the main highway (Highway 50) separating Central Florida's Orlando and Titusville on Florida's Space Coast is the Fort Christmas Historical Park. Located specifically at 1300 Fort Christmas Road in Christmas, Florida.

A replica for the original fort, built in 1837 during the Seminole Indian War, anchors the 25-acre park that also features a traditional Florida "Cracker" house, seven pioneer homes, a sugar cane mill and historical farming equipment.

The historical park also includes several picnic pavilions (including a large one that is covered and screened), restroom facilities, a unique themed children's playground, a baseball diamond, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts.

The park is open Tuesday through Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. during the summer and 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the winter. Access to the fort museum is 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The park is closed Mondays. Admission is free.
