Fodor's Review

For a look at a relatively recent episode in the area's military history, head to the now defunct Nike missile site, above Fort Barry, which is the only accessible site of its kind in the United States. It gives you a firsthand view of menacing Hercules missiles and missile-tracking radar. Free, guided tours take place at 12:45, 1:45, and 2:30 pm. On the first Saturday of the month the site holds an open house at which some of the docents leading walking tours are Nike

veterans who describe their experiences. The site is closed to the public during inclement weather, so call ahead to confirm open hours.
