Fort Pulaski

It is part of the National Park Service. I've never had a bad experience with the NPS. Interesting and well kept.

We were please with the cost to go to Fort Pulaski. I've been once before. This time I watched the informational video, which I suggest everyone watch!

We spent an hour or two walking around the fort, caught up with a tour for a very insightful conversation on how canons are fired and imagined what those 7 foot walls could say. Plenty of shade and beautiful views from the top.

If your a lover of history this is a good stop. We took the time to walk the grounds and although the day was pretty hot and humid we pushed through and enjoyed reading up on some of the history. Took about an hour to take in most of the property and we got some pretty cool photos with the... More

Stopped for an afternoon activity after a day of driving, before heading to downtown Savannah for dinner. 4 kids liked it, husband and I enjoyed the history, too. Yes, it was hot, it's July in Georgia, hot is on the menu. However, there was a beautiful breeze that made our trip a delight. Really great tour, good piece of historical... More

Watch the video at the visitors center for a biased perspective on the civil war and a few stereotypical depictions of southerners. The fort is interesting to see. Dangerous for anyone who gets too close to the edge on the roof. Disabled veterans get in free. I didn't have my VA letter, but the park ranger took my word for... More

Came to Fort Pulaski for a quick visit. Was able to see the entire fort and learn quite a bit. It was really cool to see a Civil War fort in such great condition.

Stopped in on a recent afternoon while vacationing at Tybee. The staff are knowledgeable and very courteous. Very nice displays etc. for the history buffs. It's definitely worth the stop.

While there's not a lot to do, it's a very, very nice place to visit. Watching the movie at the visitor's center gives one a sense of the history, and I'd recommend also listening to one of the docents/rangers give their presentations. My 10-year old who likes history enjoyed both. My 12-year old who is less into history still loved... More

A great fort built after the War of 1812 that was so important during the Civil War. You can walk around the whole place - from top to bottom. There are a good amount of steep steps if you are wanting to go up top. Kids will need to be closely supervised up top since there is nothing from keeping... More
