I loved the fact that it is a fort with a real history and you can still see the damages of the secession war on its walls.

We were surprised by how pretty the area surrounding the fort was. All the rangers and volunteer staff were very helpful and informative. We learned a lot in an enjoyable way on a beautiful day. The trail to view the Cockspur Lighthouse is very pretty, almost tropical jungle like.

Short drive to see the fort and on to Tybee Island. Historical monument to the battle and into the fort was interesting perspective to Civil War times. The view from the top of the fort is fabulous, take the time to see the video in the Visitors Center, and the guides offer points of interest.

Our small children loved roaming all over the Fort. We had the luxury of a beautiful sunny but cool day and enjoyed the river views very much as well. Coming across the bridge to the fort was a great view also. We enjoyed interacting with the volunteers as well.

The views from the upper wall were good, and there were a good number of shore birds on site. The signage was informative and easy to follow, and the displays were interesting as well. November is a great time to visit because the bugs aren't as voracious and the sun is beating down on you as you tour the grounds.... More

The National Park Service has done a great job preserving this fort. They had a cannon demonstration while I was there. Very cool! If you climb to the top with small children, keep your hands on them. There is no railing from the top to inside the courtyard. I would hate to think what would happen with one false step.... More

On our way out of Savannah we stopped at Ft. Pulaski and we are so glad we did. We were with our two boys, ages six and nine and participated in the free 3 PM tour. The Park Ranger was terrific! She was engaging and informative and very patient with our two wiggle worms. Very interesting and educational, and well... More
