This is a great spot for a photo op and then some. What a nice site for a bit of Georgia history, kept and restored as it was back during the yester years of the deep south. It’s easy to imagine what it must have been like with well preserved spots like this one. I like the name of this site, Skidway. The archway is simple and clean and gives hint to the archway of trees to come. It was erected in 1913. It’s $10/pp with tax. The Tabby ruins were built in 1745. It’s a nice way to be in touch with nature and you can see the sites at your own leisure. You can find some small crabs moving sideways along the way.

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.

Lovely historic site - lots of natural beauty and a very interesting story. Very impressive drive to the ruins. Visit the museum and watch the video first. There was a knowledgeable and personable docent at the sight of the ruins and there are a few trails - we didn't [regrettably] have time for the longer one. The setting is very serene. We finished by buying a few items in the gift shop - some interesting old-time toys, we just got pick up sticks for our visit with adult children at lake house. We also bought some super-delicious peach cookies. Happy to support places like this, much better than strip malls.

We were informed that this was not what we were going to expect but to still go see it. This was ruins of a plantation that once existed. Still interesting history. We listened to the three audio recordings by cranking a handle on a box that created the electricity. Was kinda fun then tiring 😅. The drive onto the grounds was beautiful, lined with a canopy of trees. Your mind wonders to how carriages once went down it. This was the first time I’ve seen marshes as this, and to see the wind blow across them was relaxing yet sad, to think there is no longer water in them as there once was for boats to maneuver. The entry is magnificent and there was a couple taking pictures for their engagement. Wormsloe is definitely a top fav of mine.

The trees at the entrance are the best part. You can park at the entrance and take your pictures of the oaks. There is really nothing past that. We did buy tickets and walked the trail to see everything. It was very underwhelming. Tickets are relatively inexpensive and I like supporting a historic site so I didn’t mind paying, but there was just really nothing to see.
