Fort Pulaski National Monument has one of the best preserved nineteenth century masonry fortifications in the United States. It was also the site of a major artillery duel during the Civil War that saw the first major use of rifled artillery in battle. You can tour the fortress, see living historians bringing the past to life, or watch an artillery demonstration that really immerses visitors with the sights and sounds of conflict. The monument however, is more than just a fort. We have over 5000 acres of pristine saltwater marsh, one of the largest concentrations of marsh along the coast of Georgia. Combine that with miles of trails and you have a great way to get away from our cultural history and surround yourself with the natural beauty of Cockspur Island, the heart of the monument.

There isn't enough room to explain how much there is at Fort Pulaski. It's a time-consuming attraction, but for history lovers, it's worth it. So much fun to visit this historical site!

We toured Fort Pulaski and I had no expectations of what it would be like. It far exceeded anything I could have imagined. Take the tour. The tour guide made it relatable and entertaining. Without the tour, I would not have learned as much or...More

This fort, which is a huge fort, in the middle of the river was a very neat place. You can walk along the ramparts and get a taste of history. A little out of the way, but worth the visit.

Fort Pulaski is worth the stop as you travel to Tybee Island. It is well maintained by the park service and the big claim to fame here is the advancement of the rifle bore cannon. It is interesting to walk around the inside of the...More
