About
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.

Took a Grayline Tour in Savannah,Ga. with tour/guide driver Dennis Morrison, which involved the Bonventure Cemetery & Wormsloe Historic Site. This is a Excellent tour for a person who doesn’t reside in the area, and is given a two fold experience. The grounds of both locations are breathtaking and can be considered a photographers dream for capturing memorable historical photos with knowledge given by Dennis Morrison. Our tour guide and driver was a history buff of both areas and made everyone trips an enjoyable and fast paced journey. He had a great sense of humor keeping everyone in laughs and also impressing everyone with his knowledge of the past 300 years concerning events/people from the Savannah Ga area. Time really flew by and before you knew it the day tour was over and everyone departed with a positive memorable trip. For those photographers that were on vacation obtained photos to re-enforce the information given by Dennis Morrison. If I return in the future I would consider using Grayline Tours again, hoping that Dennis was my tour guide driver. Thank you Dennis for everything. It was a fantastic journey with you.

I had been to and around Savannah many times but had never heard of Wormsloe until my wife read about it as we traveled in the area. We did have to pay an entry fee ($18 for two and our vehicle) and were then allowed to enter and drive to the parking area at the Visitor's Center Museum. Inside were many fascinating facts and illustrations about Georgia's founding days including a DVD showing depicting the settling in the area.

We departed he museum and walked the shorter of the two trails. Along the way were the natural surroundings and depictions of lifestyle of those founding years.

NOTE: In this area, Summer may be a time uncomfortable to many visitors. If visiting then I suggest being prepared for humid heat and insects.

What a beautiful tree-lined entry road with Spanish Moss draping down. $10 PP entrance fee, visitors center and small museum, picnic area, interpreted ruins, Colonial demonstrations, nature trails. Plenty of parking, nice and quiet with lots of families enjoying a stroll. Very interesting history. Glad we went.

Really militant and overzealous female "guard" on duty when we drove in...started barking at us to park and to absolutely not take any pictures. Very off-putting...so much for southern hospitality. A simple welcoming conversation to briefly explain their entrance rules would have been fine but we got a scowling, cranky person who just seem bothered that we came to visit the location that keeps her employed. While we tried to figure out where to pay (which also was on the high side), she kept coming by and telling us we better not take any pictures. I wasn't even tempted as they have a chair and huge stop sign obstructing the view anyways. Ridiculous. This had been somewhere I had really wanted to visit but she tainted the whole morning and made us feel agitated and unwelcome. So, they didn't get $30 from us ($10 per person in the car which is laughable as we had a sleeping child in the back and they also wanted a fee for her). Not about the money really just refuse to be treated that way. I have since deleted all my Pinterest shots of this location. No free advertising from me.

We had visited Wormsloe before, about 3 years ago. That visit was at the end of March, when the site was less crowded. You enter the site through a gate at the main road. The process is then to park, obtain tickets (roughly $10 per person) at a small cabin/shack ranger station, and then proceed into the site.

The signature attraction here is the 1+ mile avenue from the main gate to the visitors' center, lined the whole way with large old Live Oaks. Previously, it was possible to pull in, take some photos from the end of this avenue, and head out. We paid and visited the site last time, so the above had been our initial plan for our 2nd visit. However, they now have someone seated in a lawn chair at the gate to ensure that you pay (even to take photos) or leave. It seemed a bit restrictive.

We did pay and took photos from both ends. Some people stop mid-way and do full-blown photo shoots...

We parked at the visitors' center, checked it out briefly, and then did one of the main hikes out to the river and back via a loop (about a mile total). It was interesting enough, but we had seen it before.

This site is definitely worth a stop.

Just the entrance to the site is worth the price of admission. The mile long tree lined entrance is amazing. Museum and short film give a good overview of the history, and the self guided hike is worth the effort. The interpretive guide with his son's was excellent at the "colonial life area" and really tried to bring the period to life. The loop from the museum to tabby ruins, colonial life area ant back might be a mile total. There are longer hikes if you are inclined.

First off, I will start by saying that the beauty of this property is breathtaking. The oak tree avenue with the Spanish moss is so gorgeous! And, the cost of the ticket is super easy on the wallet as well! I also like the little colonial setup they had near the fort ruins. But, one major thing that seemed to be missing was any mention of plantation life and the enslaved people that worked there. The museum and information were very heavy on colonial life which was definitely interesting but there was little detail about the people who worked the land. I did some research and apparently, 1500 enslaved people lived here at one time. I would have appreciated learning more of their stories and the different dynamics of life for them and their owners.

Lots of places in Savannah are good at taking your $$$, but not giving you much back.
Wormsloe has however won first prize.
If you want to pay $10 a person to see an old wall, and a wooden 12x12 hut, come to Wormsloe.
The only decent part is the tree lined road at the entrance. What a waste of time and $$.

Wormsloe Plantation was a Magical place to visit. The entrance way was a tunnel of overhanging live oaks over a mile long. Easy walks to all locations on this beautiful property. Even a demonstration of growing food. What really made it special for us was Ranger Erin Bradford who was dressed to the period and would change some what depending what he was demonstrating. Ranger Erin was truly passionate about the history he spoke of, the demonstrations he gave, he was a world of knowledge and he had a knack for getting everyone involved. He was so enthusiastic he made you want to go home and look up more history of this time. Remember Freedom isn't Free.

We stopped here on our way into Savannah because we had seen pictures of these beautiful trees. You have to pay like $10 a person to enter the site and drive up the path to park. Once you’re parked you can walk the roadway and explore and take pictures. The only path we really went down was the main one with the trees and we went to see the gravesite. The gravesite was just a family grave so it was smaller and just one spot. It was still cool but don’t expect an entire cemetery like I did. We didn’t go into the museum since reviews said it was t worth too much time. All in all we had a great time exploring and taking pictures and enjoying the natural beauty of these trees.
