A breathtaking live oak avenue leads visitors one mile down a colonial road to a vistor center, where they can watch short historical film, tour a museum, and browse a gift shop. 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. Five more miles of nature trails are available for those who are more adventurous.

One of the most beautiful drives in Savannah. The trees are breathtaking with the Spanish moss hanging from each limb. It's a must if visiting Savannah.

We recently visited Savannah, Ga and heard about Wormsloe Plantation. We had seen pictures of the entrance around Savannah and decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! It is a beautiful historic plantation with old canopied oak trees at the entrance. You could spend a few hours wandering around if the weather allowed. We walked to the ruins... More

The driveway leading to the property is well worth the admission price itself. Once on the grounds, the walk to the river affords an opportunity to see the ruins of the main house and learn about the rich history of the colony and the owner's, Noble Jones, fervent opposition to slavery. There is no formal tour, so be prepared to... More

It needs money to upgrade the site. The road going in is nearly impassable and the buildings are in need of repairs.

The first thing to grab your attention at this well-maintained GA state historical site is the moss-draped, tree-lined driveway that leads to the visitor’s center. It’s beautiful, lending a true gothic southern feel. The visitor’s center is small; it includes an exhibit area and a movie theatre. But if you arrive at the right time, rangers give tours of the...

The property itself is beautiful. The Live Oak lined drive is worth the price of admission by itself, but I highly recommend taking the guided tour of the property. Our guide was fun, very knowledgeable and shared great information about Wormsloe's history, the surrounding area and environment and Savannah itself. There is no additional cost for the tour and it... More

Love this place. Just beautiful. The drive in something else as you travel under the canopy of live oaks. The film was very interesting so stay for that. The historic site of the home is worth the walk if you are up to it in the heat. We saw a rare Painted Bunting bird.

The driveway is incredible. The plantation itself is just ok, the original house has fallen down and you can't see the newer plantation house because it is now private property :-(

From the minute we drove up to the giant iron gates, Wormsloe was absolutely gorgeous. My boyfriend and I went in the early morning when they first opened, and there were only a handful of other people there. It was quiet and very peaceful. Our only complaint was that it wasn't bigger!

Stopped by to view the entrance of this historic site. We did not take the tour to see the remaining ruins. But this view is breathtaking.
