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.

The view alone of that archway of trees is stunning! It was beautiful and peaceful. If you're staying in the Historic District, and don't have a car, you will need to rent a car. We got one for the day for under $40 and went here, Bonaventure Cemetery and Tybee Island. All three of these places were worth the visit.

A beautiful setting; the 1 ½ mile oak canopy drive is spectacular and instantly recognizable. (“Run Forrest, run!”) The film on the plantation in the visitors center is interesting and informative as are the ruins. We thoroughly enjoyed walking on the trails. Even though the tabby house no longer exists, you definitely get a sense of how hard it must... More

The iconic path through the live oaks was breath-taking. We enjoyed some photography, including some photo tips from our wonderful private taxi guide and landscape photographer, Rick, who brought us out from Savannah as part of our tour. 912-441-6004.

We went to Wormsloe to see the Live Oak Drive. They are incredibly beautiful! I would give Wormsloe an excellent rating if that was all we saw. But, we got to go on a tour with Jesse! He did an outstanding job explaining about the original settlers, and the significance of the location in the defense of Savannah from the... More

We took a cab here , on the outskirts of Savannah. We got dropped off at the front gate and took an fantastic 1 mile stroll down the entry road which is an arborway of overhanging pin oak trees (450) and spanish moss dripping from the branches. (Check out the photos). Once you reach the visitor center there is a... More

I previously read information on the website about Wormsloe so I would know what to expect. I knew there was no plantation home to view, which was fine to me. The many live oaks that line the road are super gorgeous. I walked through the museum, watched the video and had a guided tour. Everyone that was there the day... More

We enjoyed a great visit to this historic site. At first we thought the $10 (per adult) entrance fee was a bit steep but it was well worth it. I would strongly suggest taking the free tour to get the most from your visit. The guide was great and very well informed! A great way to spend a couple of... More

If your vacation destination is Savannah, it wont be complete without the short trip out of the historic district to Wormsloe. Here you will be amazed as you look down the road as far as the eye can see at a tunnel of oak trees decorated in Spanish moss. You may remember it from the movie Forrest Gump in the... More

I really enjoyed this tour and the drive in with the live oaks was breath taking! We had a great tour guide who knew the history well. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because I thought we were going to see the plantation house.
