Very interesting place for those who love history and want to learn the struggles of our American past. The Georgia sky burst forth with black clouds and thunderstorms as we approached the Fort which made it more dramatic:) Amazing to see the cannonball damage to the Southeastern walls.

This was a great place to learn about some history. At the very top you can even see Hilton Head from a distance.

Wonderful walking tour. Knowledgeable guide . history of the fort and the early settlements very informative. Take the tour first before watching the film in the visitors center. The cannons and construction details of the fort are interesting. The complex is very accecable lots to see. plan on an hour for the tour plus walk about time.

My grandchildren love going to the fort. They have a cannon firing almost every weekend. It's very impressive. Great place to take a walk and enjoy nature.

If you're into historic parks and monuments it's a must see. Located over the bridge on Tybee Island and you can see the lighthouse from the bridge as you leave the park.

Lots of great scenery and you learn a lot about the history. Great pace for picnicking and fishing off the banks. Saw many dolphins feeding from the bridge. Week pass for only $7 a piece. Great price, great for families not wanting to spend a fortune.

Unlike most cookie cutter historic forts, this one had the added bonus of showing some of the damage done to the exterior walls by Union bombardment. Be observant to find the shell and cannon balls that still exist in the brick exterior. The skill required to complete the masonry work on this fort is astounding.
