Owner description: 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.

Very interesting place, especially if you, like me, don't know much about Georgia history. Not only does it have a good visitors center that is worth spending time in (it helps you with the rest of the large plantation) but it has excellent walking/hiking trails, and you can see some of the original buildings. It us a very pretty place,... More

This is not a plantation, it is a few walls of tabby. I cannot believe the state is charging to see this. The oak lined drive to the walls is beautiful, but you can't walk it or drive it without paying. Save your money folks.

Wormsloe was one place we HAD to visit when we were in the Savannah area, and we were all so glad we did! Although there aren't a lot of historic buildings to visit, what remains is a bit of history not to miss. The tree-lined driveway (over 400 live oaks w/Spanish moss) welcomes you to Georgia's oldest plantation!

It will take you about 2 hours to walk through the estate. There are no 'tours by vehicle' inside the estate. But if you can walk about to 2miles, you will see the most beautiful countryside in the world.

What a great place to visit at night! We had the ability to do the Latern Tours from 6-8pm (check the website for the next one). It was awesome! The manager of the plantation had it very well organized and the volunteers dressed in period costumes made the experience come to life. Would definitely visit again! The manager said there... More

Excellent exhibits and a very good tour. She told us many good things. Also, there was a very good film. Some tours feature riding on a golf cart. There is a lot of walking over rough trails, so the cart ride is welcome after a while. Very cool to see where they lived out in that wilderness. The tree lined... More

Well worth the visit. First a 1.5 mile drive down the Oak lined lane. Then the Visitors Center, with an interesting movie about the history of the area. Interesting walks around the grounds.

The live oak tree lined drive is absolutely beautiful. This is all about nature and senic views. We were disappointed with the ruins but we're still glad we went. This is a colonial plantation not what most people picture when you say plantation.

If you're staying in the historic part of Savannah it is a little bit of a ride to Wormsloe, but it is worth seeing this to round out your knowledge of plantation life. When I think of plantations I think primarily of the decades before the Civil War, but Wormsloe dates back to the Colonial days, one hundred years prior.... More

Wormsloe is so beautiful. I always bring my out of town guests here. The tree covered path in the front of the property is breathtaking and the trails by the marshes are so pretty. Don't expect a giant plantation mansion - this is all about nature! Though the tabby ruins are cool too.
