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.

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

It is definitely worth the drive if you like to see a tree-lined road dating back to the early days when Savannah was founded by Brits who lived on plantations.

We visited Wormsloe the 1st week of Feb. The oak lined driveway was amazing! Viewed the informative short video at the visitor center. Took a walking tour (no additional cost) of the grounds with Heather (park ranger) and so glad we did! Heather made the Wormslee story come to life for us. She was full of information we would never... More

This place is gorgeous. Oak drive is breath taking with over 400 live oaks and Spanish moss. The trails have incredible trees and views of the marshes. Vine wrapped trees, Spanish moss, cedar and others. Could spend weeks or more here. A must stop for low country shots. Do not miss this place! Favorite of all places to shoot.

If you have an interest in colonial life, Wormsloe can offer you lots of information about what it was like in the earliest days of Savannah. I love the drive down to the visitor's center when is under a canopy of oaks which makes you think you have gone back to an older, more genteel time. There are some interesting... More

We visited this beautiful plantation site during the Revolutionary re-enactment held yearly. It started with a glorious drive through the live oaks dripping with spanish moss up to the parking area and museum. Inside we watched an interesting and informative 13 minute movie explaining the beginning of the Savannah area and the life of Noble Jones, a major figure in... More

The first time we drove, they were closing up so we couldn't drive any further than the entry so make sure you are aware of the hours of operation. The only other opportunity we had to visit it was raining but at least they were open. I don't know if it was because it was raining, but there was no... More

For me the greatest attraction was the grove of 300-400 live oak trees that create a beautiful canopy along a road about a mile long. It was beautiful and great for photos. I have not seen anything as extensive as this grove. It was also very breezy walking around and looking at the ruins of the old plantation. The different... More

The site and history of Wormsloe is really interesting. The main point of your visit will be the long entrancee of canopied live oak trees......amazingly beautiful! This is what you picture a true southern plantation entrance. The only thing missing is the magnificent old plantation home. At Wormsloe the one home is a private residence and the original old Tabby... More
