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.

Nicely preserved early plantation entrance. Not much more to see. There is a cool walk along the river bank with palm trees and hanging moss. On your way back, drive through Isle if hope. Quaint water town with beautiful homes. Ps. $10 per adult to enter or to take a picture of the oaks.

Wormsloe was on my must see list of places to see when I planned my trip to Savannah. I was not disappointed. Keep in mind that it is a historic site now of what was once one of the first plantations in Savannah. The land is pretty much all that is left. When you first arrive you are welcomed by... More

The entrance to the site was beautiful with all the live oaks and Spanish moss. The visitors center ran an informative film that we enjoyed,interesting artifacts and information about the history of Wormsloe. There is a homestead area that had been recreated and we especially liked the two gentlemen that were dressed in period clothing. They were enthusiastic about sharing... More

The drive into Wormsloe is lovely but it is a ruin of an old plantation. Not much left to see but crumbling remains. My family did enjoy the walk around the water front.

This is a very interesting and informative museum/historic site. I especially loved the way the entrance road was framed with old oak trees the way that many mansions in the south are. In the park, there is a wide variety of native and non-native plants and wildlife to see. You can walk around on the same grounds as the first... More

Went for a look and were impressed by the oak lined drive - really nice. Not a lot of info when you get your ticket, you have to head to the visitor centre, pretty average building with not a lot to do. The historic information was good, but there could be more.

Wormsloe State Park offers beauty, history, and outdoor exercise to visitors. The entrance is an impressive mile long tunnel of ancient live oak trees draped in Spanish moss. The park center offers a small museum and interpretive film to orient visitors. There are 5 miles of well kept trails for hikers. Along the trails you will encounter ruins of the... More

Wormsloe is a gorgeous place. The oak avenue is definitely worth a detour. The staff was not overly helpful but the $8 price tag was worth it for the pictures and memories we will take away from this place. Truely magical to walk under the oak canopy. Perfect winter day and we came just in time for the sunset. All... More

This was one of the surprises of our trip. The drive down Oak Avenue was spectacular. The strolls were not difficult and although we got there early and staff had not arrived yet, we found it very peaceful and a fun activity for 3 very Urbanites. It was a beautiful december day and we had a nice time exploring Wormsloe.

This is a very great place to visit. It's very relaxing and some great sites to see not only when you enter but when you begin to follow the trails. The only reason I gave it 4/5 was because since it was late October, there were no activities going on to check out. You definitely have to take that classic... More
