This is a neat place to visit. Not just for the fort itself, but they seem to have trails and picnic areas. I enjoyed reading the history of it in the visitors center and walking all over it. It was involved in the war for our freedom from Britain and the civil war between the states. Good place for kids... More

As far as forts go, this was a pretty average one to visit. The history was not as rich as others, but it was something to do to pass the time for a pretty cheap price. The views from the top are incredible!

This trip to Georgia has been quite a surprise to me. Being from the north and having traveled to the south infrequently I can see that I have missed so much beauty and history. Visiting the fort and grounds is a relaxing way to spend Memorial Day in Georgia

Went here while staying at nearby Skidaway State Park. Great fort to check out with lots of trails to walk around and explore. Make sure you give yourself some time for this one. We went with only two hours and left only getting to explore the fort. We will return to see the other tails in our next trip!

We visited Fort Pulaski today for a few hours, and really enjoyed our stay. Good news: Kids under 15 are free! The $5 price per adult is very reasonable. Tip: Your ticket is good for a full week, so you can return any time during that period. Another tip: skip the Visitor Center. We walked thru briefly, and it didn't... More

What a bargain for a family to explore at $5 per adult and kids free. Spent a couple hours exploring the fort and the surrounding area. Amazing how much detail was put into building this and how well it has been restored. Definitely would recommend this to others. Great was to add some history education into a beach visit.

We stayed on Tybee Island Ga. during our recent vacation. We picked Tybee Island and Savannah on a whim and didn't know exactly what we'd find to do while there. When we drove past Fort Pulaski entering Tybee Island we knew we'd have to visit. We made the visit our first morning there and were so thrilled we did so!... More

I really enjoyed this. They go into great detail showing you how things where back then. I loved the cannon firings. The fort is very interesting if you are into history. My teens liked it the first little while. Then became bored while waiting for the cannon firings. I would go back. I love learning about history.

Great historical tour. Bathrooms and drinks available for guests. Easy terrain for all ages. Markers to explain what was located at each station.
