Going to the Fort is a step back into History, and you can almost hear the cannons firing, and soldiers running around. The Fort only closes at Dark, and is easily accessible from the Highway.

My husband and I visited Fort Pulaski National Monument the day after Christmas with our two dogs. We discovered that the monument was pet-friendly, but dogs must be on a leash, owners must pick-up after their pets, and the pets are not allowed in the gift shop. We were there when the cannons were fired inside the fort - I... More

About 20 minutes east of Savannah, a great place to get a bit of history and also if you want, some walking and hiking. For just 7 bucks entry, you can see live cannon demos, a guided tour, and losts of hikes.

We've seen several of the coastal forts along the east coast, and this is one of the best preserved. The fortifications are pretty much intact, and parts of the fort have been staged to show what life was like there during the civil war. The fort didn't have as much information displayed on story boards as other forts, and I... More

From the time we drove up to the gate, the National Park service staff we encountered were polite and knowledgeable. Ft. Pulaski was designed by a French military architect, building was supervised by the engineer son of British immigrants, and it was named for a Polish military officer who volunteered with George Washington. It was taken by the Confederacy, reclaimed... More

Interesting visit... We were fortunate enough to be able To visit on a Saturday, which is the only day of the week when the cannons are fired. After a short history lesson by a volunteer guide, five "soldiers" demonstrated, step by step, how the huge cannons we're prepared, loaded, and fired. Afterwards we were free to explore the fort at... More

What a neat place to visit. Try and catch a guided tour by one of the rangers to get the most of your visit. We really enjoyed our visit. It is dog friendly. The price is reasonable at $7 per person. Active military only get a discount/free park entry (My husband is former military and when we asked if he... More

Have been to Fort Pulaski several times over the past decade. Always something new to see and hear from the historians in traditional military uniforms. Nice walking the grounds and different levels of the old Fort. The old cannons are interesting and very historic. Occasionally you will see some alligators swimming in the surrounding water moat.

We stopped by looking for a fun activity with the kids. The volunteer at the building told us to run down the walkway because the show was starting soon. It was a guy in an authentic soldier uniform. He was very informative and answered the kids questions. We walked all around the bottom and top of the fort. There were... More
