Smart travel means getting more bang for your buck. Don't just take a vacation; throw in a history lesson!
I recently visited Mission San Luis in Tallahassee. Florida's only reconstructed Spanish mission, the site brings history to life with artifacts, recreated buildings and - best of all - reenactments. During my visit, I arrived just in time to watch volunteers stage a muster firing. Boy, was it LOUD!
While I covered my ears, my dear husband shot this video. Check it out!
If you miss the muster firing, stick around for the cannon firing, which happens several times daily.
Mission San Luis is at 2100 W Tennessee St. Call 850-245-6406 or go to missionsanluis.org.
