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.

We went just for a few minutes and the entrance is so pretty but the sign up front says you have to pay to take pictures? Heck naw. I would pay to go in but not just to take a pic. We walked in a little ways and took a few pics and left when the security guy came out.

The Ruins of the original site are quite authentic and are not drastically changed through restoration as some historical sites are.

Is it worth $10 per person. Depends. The tree tunnel truly is stunning and the pictures don't do it justice. The museum is small but was interesting if you enjoy history. The trails are all covered with beautiful trees. We didn't walk the mile and a half to the ruins because it was so hot and we were just leaving... More

The oak lined entrance is beautiful. The old ruins are interesting to look at but there isn't much to learn. It was incredibly hot and the plantation is large. Many places to explore and paths that lead to the water. I was able to take a lot of photos and it was worth the ride out to see it. I... More

This gorgeous tree lined street is where they shot some of the scenes from Forrest Gump. It's a beautiful plantation and a great walking experience.

Had an afternoon to spend in Savannah so my husband and I went to Wormsloe in our rental car based on other review on Trip Advisor. The pictures don't do justice of the entryway!! Beautiful Spanish moss trees align the entrance for quite a while. We went into the visitor's center and watched a really low budget, cheesy video that... More

The live oak lined drive in to Wormsloe Plantation is gorgeous! It is well worth the trip from Savannah to view this piece of history.

Worth the visit if you are in Savannah...even if just to see the long oak driveway from the road... though well worth the admission to drive through it and see the old plantation ruins and museum.. movie was a great summary of some of Savannah's history.
