1) JFK Bomb Shelter at Peanut Island in Florida
The early 1960’s were a scary time in American history with the Cuban Missile Crisis and a real threat of attack coming from off the coast of Florida. A very interesting product of that tense time in history still sits on Peanut Island. A few minutes away from Peanut Island is a Palm Beach residence that was owned by John F. Kennedy’s Family. In order to protect JFK from a potential missile attack, this amazing underground bunker was built in 1961. For $14 per adult and $8 per child, you can tour this unusual place today, which is now maintained as a museum.
