Overview
More
A breathtaking live oak avenue leads visitors one mile down a colonial road to a vistor center, where they can watch short historical film, tour a museum, and browse a gift shop. A walking trail leads to the 1737 tabby ruins of the oldest remaining structure in the Savannah. Trails meander past scenic marsh views to the Colonial Life Area, where costumed interpreters provide living history demonstrations in the afternoons, weather permitting. Five more miles of nature trails are available for those who are more adventurous.

Interesting site but nothing great to see . Easy to walk from the visitor parking lot to take in the views. The views of the marsh are nice but probably can do the whole thing in a hour and half.

This is breathtakingly beautiful. Theres a museum. You can go through the ruins and see where the family was buried. They have like an area in where you can see how a colonial family lived. We loved exploring it

Just like it's out of a movie... oh wait! It's been in a few movies! When you want a break from fresh seafood, head to Wormsloe and take a nice relaxing walk.

If you have only little time, feel free to skip some of the less exciting attractions and visit Wormsloe instead. The drive up to the visitor center is worth the experience already - great trails, well kept (worth the $10 entrance fee), and a perfect...More

Alas, there are no plantation houses to visit in the Savannah area (thanks to General Sherman) but, this historic park is the estate of one of the original Georgia colonial settlers. The ruins a modest house remain but mostly you should come to walk down...More

The oak alle is a mile long back to the visitors center, so it's best to drive here. The attendant at the front cautioned people who ubered there that they'd have a mile walk to the visitors center, then there are many trails around the...More

Quite the impressive oak-lined drive leading up to the ruins of an old, fortified dwelling. A good visitor's centre and some nice walking trails.

We enjoyed the tour....the guide was very informative. Beautiful place. Nice walking trails. We toured in the middle of March which was perfect....the bugs weren't out yet. The Spanish moss along the road is beautiful
