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.

Our visit to Wormsloe was great. It was a very affordable attraction and definitely worth spending a few hours touring the grounds. Most of the walking areas are shaded but due to the humidity, it would probably be best to go first thing in the morning (this is also best for photos).

We loved the Oak drive, 1 1/2 miles of beautiful trees garlanded by Spanish moss. The little museum and the short documentary played in the auditorium were very informative. We went early, at 10.30am, before the crowds arrived so pretty much had the trails to ourselves. It was a nice leisurely visit.

Get there early for better pictures! There is a short walk to the remains of the original house and gravesite. Amazing trees like no where else. Small museum and many trails. Stop in you won't be dissapointed.

Do not get me wrong, Wormsloe is beautiful. The only part that is really breathtaking is the oak tree lined road. It is not worth $10 per person. My friend and I went to go hiking, which there are 5 miles worth of trails if you leave your car at the front gate. Maybe if you are not from the... More

First, know that you will not tour a home. You will get to see the ruins of the original home...but it is nothing more than a few standing walls. The driveway lined with moss covered Live Oaks.....is breathtaking. That alone is worh the entrance fee to get in. It is pretty much a nature trail type adventure. The scenery is... More

Beautiful live-oak entrance to small-scale visitor center, then a nice short stroll through the woods to the remains of Georgia's first plantation. Finally learned what "tabby ruins" are which seem to be endemic to Georgia. Interesting easy visit, for families, older adults, would suit just about anyone.

The canopy of trees is amazing! I appreciated the video for the historical background. Our group arrived when the park was still open, but the tours had ended. Jason, the grounds manger happened to be headed out on the trail at the same time to check out something occurring with some of the insects, and he gave us a tour... More

400 oak trees dripping with Spanish moss in the early morning light is indeed all it's cracked up to be. Have seen nothing else like it. The entire grounds are very peaceful and isolated. Tiny little museum and video is sort of cheesy, spend your time outside.
