the oak path is the best part of this place, but there was not much else that was worth the time in terms of scenery and views. the hiking trails were well marked. unfortunately, i thought the $10 per person fee was too much for what it was.

My husband and I stopped here while in Savannah. Honesty, I only wanted to stop to take pictures of the beautiful oak tree drive, which did not disappoint! I could have stayed all day just to take pictures of the drive! The unexpected part was all the other stuff there to see! The trails were great, I felt like I... More

This place was stunning. I couldn't believe the one mile long live oak covered drive! Any type of weather besides a thunderstorm would be great to view these grounds. Worth going out to see it without a doubt.

I had to visit the ruins of the oldest standing structure in the state. Wormloe predates slavery in GA and the family still lives on the property. The museum was small, yet informative. I really enjoyed the walking guided tour of the wooded grounds. With a little imagination you can really understand what life was like in the 1700s. Be... More

This was a very nice place to visit. Absolutely gorgeous drive up the tree lined road to the main area. any families with teenagers? "The last song" with Miley Cyrus filmed a few scenes here! My 18 year old sister was very excited about this. Very nice stop here, I'm glad we went.

If you're in the area you must go, if only to take the picture driving down the longest oak lane in the USA which is just beautiful. Wear mosquito repellent otherwise you will get bitten -- regardless of the weather. Once at the visitor center, there's a little nice museum, small gift shop -- which to my surprise does offer...

Shortly after arriving in Savannah, we made the short drive to this historic site on the Isle of Hope. Once you enter the site, you are immediately greeted with a long straight drive lined with live oaks filled with Spanish moss. We purchased our ticket at the house immediately inside the gate and then set off down the path to... More

The 1.5 miles entrance to into the Wormsloe Historic Site,driving down a majestic driveway, lined on either side by over 400 majestic oak trees is worth the trip to see this Plantation. Wormsloe is the only "standing" architectural remnant in Savannah from the founding of Georgia which makes the trip even more fascinating. After taking a million pictures at the... More

Had seen pictures of a country road with majestic oak trees on both sides, and it looked like a dream. We found it today, and it was just as beautiful as the magazine pics. We stopped only at the entrance and took beautiful pictures, but for a fee, you can go further onto the property and take a tour.

An interesting and beautiful site but I would only recommend doing it if you time it so you can take the tour. The tour is interesting and places everything in perspective -- without the tour it is hard to visualize what was there and why this place matters. The film and museum are also a must.
