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.

When you drive past Wormsloe and hear about the ruins of a colonial house, it puts you in mind of the great Plantation homes that dot the landscape farther north. This place is not one of those, despite it's majestic gate and oak lined driveway. In fact, if you want some stellar photos of your visit, stop when you arrive... More

A wonderful couples or family outing for some Georgia history and exercise. Bring the camera for the driveway pictures. Then go to the museum for the movie. End with an easy hike thru the woods tothe sites. Best to do in spring or fall.

This is a lovely setting; the oaks along the road are truly spectacular. There is an interesting movie at the visitor center and a pleasant trail to hike on. My only complaint is that the fee seems too high for what is there.

This place is so wonderful and educational. Definitely recommend walking down the path if you have the strength to do so. Bring water if it's a little hot.

The extremely helpful Wormsloe representatives...sorry...I did not get their official titles...maybe Guardian Angels? If not for their assistance in removing my pancake flat tire and putting the donut on...thus helping me get moving again...the flight we we did thankfully catch might not have been possible. Thank you again Jason and Jesse!!!!! Additionally, touring the very historically significant site was most... More

The drive through the tree canopy is stunning. We spent a couple hours meandering through the nature trails. Repro historic structures were cute, and the small museum was informative. The road is dirt/stone and quite rutted, so be careful with your vehicle.

We were told to go here and really didn't see any advertising. Hard to find. Beautiful mile long tree lined road...that leads to no where. Mansion is private and to the side. Enjoyed the interpretive center and the movie. Walked out to the ruins of first buildings. Would have been nice to have a covered area in case it started... More

I have visited Wormsloe a few times. I typically visit during the Colonial Faire and Muster which means there is quite a bit of activity going on. On other days, the plantation does not have a lot to offer. It is interesting to look at the ruins, but I think people often find it kind of a letdown if they... More

It's probably my fault! Maybe I didn't do enough research! But when I went to visit a 'plantation' I was hoping to see at least one gorgeous plantation home and maybe some workers huts etc! Don't get me wrong, the visitor centre and museum are very interesting and the staff polite and helpful! It just felt like quite a long... More

We were there Feb 21,2015. The entry way is exactly what I expected of the old plantations, the fabulous gates to the 400 trees that lined the road. I should have stopped there because that was free. We saw the tiny museum & watched a video then we were set free to walk around. We had no guided tour, no... More
