This working plantation was highly recommended to visit; however it is located approximately 8 miles from downtown Savannah so I did not make it before it closed at 5 pm. The entrance gates and tree lined drive are beautiful and that is all I was able to experience.

My husband and I went here as he loves the oak tree canopies of the South. He was not disappointed. It was beautiful. The museum is interesting to look around and imagine just what life was like when the home and land was established. A wonderful stop on our Savannah trip.

Views are amazing and a great place to take pictures. This is a must if you have never been and worth the entrance fee.

The site itself is beautiful - the best oak avenue from what we saw in Georgia & South Carolina by far. The rangers complete guided tours at 11am & 2pm (if I recall correctly) and we completed one on our trip - highly recommended to bring the walk of the grounds to life. Jesse was great - lots of information,... More

The property was beautiful. For me, the view driving into the property was the highlight of the attraction. The long path of old oak trees with moss swaying in the breeze was exactly how I pictured Savannah. However, the walk around the property was disappointing. I didn't realize before visiting, that there wasn't much left of the original plantation just... More

We decided to pop in to Wormsloe on our drive from Savannah to Charleston, and I'm glad we did. The drive through the oaks is beautiful and the walking tour (11am) gave context to the beautiful surroundings of the historical sight. Our intelligent, enthusiastic tour guide, Jessie, was very welcoming and spoke with real knowledge and passion for both the... More

It was worth the $10 pp admission just to drive through the canopy of Spanish-moss-laden oak trees and watch the video; we got lost afterwards, walking around the grounds, map in hand, looking for some historic landmarks. We never found anything marked on the map; we were disappointed to end up back in the parking lot after a long walk,... More

If you love history and nature then you will absolutely love it here. It is a beautiful place! There’s quite a bit of history and the views are amazing. There is a lot of walking so make sure to wear comfortable shoes. Ah, and don’t forget your camera!

I was expecting to see more than just ruins, but it was still a very nice visit. The entranceway to the plantation was absolutely breathtaking! The Oak trees on either side of the road almost seemed to have their "arms" linked above in a canopy to cover the path to the museum. It was so beautiful. Walking along the path... More

Lovely drive and an interesting walk around. The movie filled in some holes in the history of the city! I would have liked to have seen more of the "characters" talking about the place....
