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 site itself is very pretty (live Oak Ave. canopy) and with an unique history (Noble Jones). It is a 3 or 4 stars attraction depending on individual interests. I give it five starts simply because the tour guide (state park employee, who is alumnus of University of Georgia, history major) really loves his job (embodiment of doing what you... More

Before making our way to Savannah, we decided to make a quick stop at Wormsloe. The tree-lined drive was spectacular! Once you pay to get in, you can make the drive below the road-covering oaks. The site itself has A LOT of photo opportunities as well as trails you can walk. It really is a stunning park.

The road leading back is stunning! We did not do the full walk through the ruins due to time constraints, and we definitely did not see anything that would make us want to either. It was a pretty walk along the trails, but the ruins were not especially impressive. I only give it a five star rating, because the drive... More

Another great place to walk historic grounds and get your exercise at the same time. Beautiful tunnel of trees draped in Spanish moss.

Upon entering under the gated stone archway, we were already in awe of the live oak lined drive. Well worth it for the oak lined drive alone! We walked back through the paths as well and there were some other interesting things to see as well.

Visited this site on the way out of Savannah. It has a lot of interesting history and the authority inside the museum was extremely helpful in answering questions about this site and area. There is no plantation to see, just skeletons of what used to be but to history buffs, interesting. Question I forgot to ask was how long ago... More

If you're looking to bask in all things Southern romance, you've come to the right place. The driveway alone is worth the visit. Walking under the web of oak trees while the moss hangs down is nothing short of beautiful. The hardest thing for me was fighting the urge to climb the trees!! It's a long walk down the driveway,...

Honestly, I was a reluctant visitor to Wormsloe but ended up being glad my husband talked me into it. We were there on a rainy Sunday morning and it was beautiful. The tree lined drive is every bit as beautiful as it appears in pictures and movies and the history is fascinating.

What you see here is what you get but it's a beautiful thing to see. The front gate closes around 5 so if you're in there and need to get out just stop close to it and the gates will swing in to let you out. Dirt with gravel driveway. Ok to get out and walk it too!
