We visited Tybee Island on a really windy and cold day so we had to leave the beach quickly and were lucky enough to drive by this on the way back to Midtown! This is a really cool monument where you can walk around and see how life on the fort was for soldiers and prisoners back in the day!... More

Then , in1862, an innovation in cannon shells allowed the fort to have one of its walls be blasted to bits which caused it's surrender to the Union. Do watch the movie to get all... More

What drew us here was the fact that we could take our dog...what kept us here for three hours was everything to see! We walked along numerous trails, over a moat, all inside the fort and down to the river's edge. The trails are all an easy walk and we saw lots of wildlife...learned a little too!

Take a afternoon off at Fort Pulaski and go back in time to the civil war. We have taken the guided tour which made the experience even more interesting

This place is wonderful So interesting in its structure and history. We had an amazing tour guide (we had met him at the Tybee island light house the day before he volunteers at both places a fascinating person to talk to) This fort changed history in so many ways one of the most amazing features is that it was built...

Must do, especially if you are traveling to Tybee, it is right on the way. Great history, fantastic views, they do a musket firing or shoot cannons every day. Staff is very friendly and informative.

What a wonderful place to see and the volunteers that are there are very knowledgeable about the history of the fort. We also got a live demonstration of the cannons that were used at the fort. Well worth the drive out to see this attraction.

We stopped by here on the way home and as it was President's Day Weekend all National Monuments were free. The wind was making it really cold so we didn't stay for the tours, but got to see everything on our own.
