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.

The ride in was beautiful. I had joined the friends of parks and historic sites so there was a discount. But, compared to other attractions nearby, there was little information. Museum is dated and the trails need better signage. The Colonial Life area was deserted. Wish there were more people around to help you understand the importance and relevance of... More

We stopped by here after seeing so many pictures of the old live oaks. However, I was pleasantly surprised that there is more there than just the oaks. We were able to go on a tour provided by one of the employees of the state park. He was awesome!!! Very entertaining and knowledgeable. Definitely stop here on your visit to... More

It was really disappointing and boring. Nothing really to look at except some broken pottery and what is left to a outside wall. Waste of money and time.

$10.00 per person to drive a mile through a canopy lined trees? And yes, the person who takes the money was short with me as well when I look surprised that I would be spending $30.00 for 3 of us to drive down the road and back. Sadly enough, they probably get yelled at frequently for such ridiculous prices. Wish... More

I arrived at Wormsloe wanting to photograph one of my favorite scenes from Forest Gump, but I walked away mesmerized by the beauty and historical significance of this place. Located on the Isle of Hope, approximately 20 minutes from downtown Savannah, there is no public transportation or tours to Wormsloe so you can either arrange for a taxi (about $15-20)... More

As many reviews state, the gorgeous oak lined drive is worth the price of admission. It is located close to downtown Savannah and is only around a 15 min drive. I would definitely do a tour, as the ruins by themselves and the signs would be slightly boring. Our guide loved history, and was dressed for the period which was... More

We were only in town two days and did not want to go to the museum but only wanted to ride through the trees and when we pulled in it was $10 a person for us to ride through it..the guy at the desk was very rude! We saw a bride and groom taking a few pictures under the trees... More

Awesome historic place! The entrance driveway is surrounded by live oaks and there is a bunch of history on Georgia's founding. Took about 1 and 1/2 hours to look through it all.
