We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Fort Pulaski. As an American high school student, US history is learned by rote memorization and as an adult it's one of the many things that gets pushed back out of the brain to make space for all that other stuff. The displays at the Fort were very informative and really brought history to... More

This fort on a small island in the middle of the Savannah River was built before the beginning of the civil war. At the time it was felt to be impenetrable. However, the development of rifled cannons shortly before the outbreak of the Civil War made the "impenetrable" fort a world-wide example of the rapidly changing technology of the weapons... More

We were both history buffs, so this place was near the top of our list on a recent trip to Savannah. It did not disappoint. The fort itself is rather well preserved, thanks in part to some pretty extensive rebuilding and reconstruction over the years, but elements of it's history are still visible. Do take the time to read the... More

Beautiful area to walk around and historic signs to read. Might not be so great in hot weather, but it was BEAUTIFUL when we were there.

We brought a picnic lunch here which turned out to be a great idea... so much room for the kids to run around and explore. So much for the adults to read about and share with the kids. We loved this visit!

We have visited many forts. This is one of the best preserved ones. The brick walls tha gates and draw bridges are all in excellent condition. Don't miss out walking over to see the battery and pier.

3 kids--7, 8, and 10, mom and dad, along with Grandma and Grampa--all enjoyed Fort Pulaski. Park ranger at the front gate told us about the great deal for senior citizens with the special card for $10 lasts for the rest of her life and works at all national parks. We took the tour at 10:30 with a park ranger--fun... More
