A walking trail leads to the 1737 tabby ruins of the oldest remaining structure in the Savannah. Trails meander past scenic marsh views to the Colonial Life Area, where costumed interpreters provide living history demonstrations in the afternoons, weather permitting.

This was a very nice place to visit. Absolutely gorgeous drive up the tree lined road to the main area. any families with teenagers? "The last song" with Miley Cyrus filmed a few scenes here! My 18 year old sister was very excited about this. Very nice stop here, I'm glad we went.

If you're in the area you must go, if only to take the picture driving down the longest oak lane in the USA which is just beautiful. Wear mosquito repellent otherwise you will get bitten -- regardless of the weather. Once at the visitor center, there's a little nice museum, small gift shop -- which to my surprise does offer...

Shortly after arriving in Savannah, we made the short drive to this historic site on the Isle of Hope. Once you enter the site, you are immediately greeted with a long straight drive lined with live oaks filled with Spanish moss. We purchased our ticket at the house immediately inside the gate and then set off down the path to... More

The 1.5 miles entrance to into the Wormsloe Historic Site,driving down a majestic driveway, lined on either side by over 400 majestic oak trees is worth the trip to see this Plantation. Wormsloe is the only "standing" architectural remnant in Savannah from the founding of Georgia which makes the trip even more fascinating. After taking a million pictures at the... More

Had seen pictures of a country road with majestic oak trees on both sides, and it looked like a dream. We found it today, and it was just as beautiful as the magazine pics. We stopped only at the entrance and took beautiful pictures, but for a fee, you can go further onto the property and take a tour.

An interesting and beautiful site but I would only recommend doing it if you time it so you can take the tour. The tour is interesting and places everything in perspective -- without the tour it is hard to visualize what was there and why this place matters. The film and museum are also a must.

We found this site when looking on TripAdvisor for things to do in Savannah. The live oak drive leading in is simply beautiful. At the end of this drive, you get to visit a small museum with exhibits on the history of Wormsloe. Don't skip the film. Don't skip the tour. Both made the visit more than worthwhile. We learned...

We got there on a Sunday at 4:40 to find out it closes at 5pm. We did get to go thru the front gate and take pictures of the beautiful road that is supposed to lead up the the historic site but after reading some reviews we pretty much figured there was not allot left to see. We took some... More

If you are visiting the Savannah area, at least go out and see the live oak drive (that is free!) The admission seemed a little steep but after the tour (only 4x/day), we had all learned a lot about colonial Savannah & thought it was worth it. One of the best area restaurants (Driftaway) is nearby...

We stopped by on a whim on our final morning in Savannah. Glad we decided to check it out. The site is beautiful and it's a great walk. Bring a picnic, there's tons of great spots to spread out and enjoy the views.
