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.

My wife and I had a wonderful time visiting Wormsloe this summer. The grounds themselves are beautiful and the history is very interesting. We were especially impressed with Jesse, one of the supervisors, and all of the guides and their knowledge and friendliness. Beautiful place to visit, great experience.

While the arched live oaks draped with Spanish moss is quite attractive, you have to drive a long distance always waiting for signs to point out the next attraction only to get to the end of the drive and not having much to see. There might be more but the signage is so poor, good luck finding it.

We had the good fortune to have our own personal tour guide, my nephew! He works at Wormsloe and it was wonderful hearing all about the reinactions and history of the plantation. The site of the ruins of the original plantation house was filled with swamp life. Little lizards, birds, some snakes and crabs at the marsh shore. Such a... More

My friend and I paid the $10 admission fee to drive down the tree lined road, and were pretty happy with our decision. It really is a beautiful area--the trees are so lovely, many a photo opportunity. There's a small museum with an exhibit on the first settlers in the area and the US Revolutionary War. We also took a... More

The drive into the park is worth the price of admission. It is 1.2 miles of road with beautiful 125 year old oaks lining the entire drive. Once at the visitors center there is an excellent film about the park. Short walks lead to some exhibits, ruins and some great history. This is a must for history lovers and very... More

Even if you don't want to go to the plantation I suggest you take the drive out just to see the gate and the pathway to the site. It was like something out of a Harry Potter movie. The site was closed when we were there on a Monday but that was also nice because we got some great pictures... More

Beautiful photo op. We paid for a $10/each person tour of the actual grounds. There was a 15 minute movie and a 1 hour tour of the grounds. I really enjoyed it. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide, he was a highschool student but so excited and enthusiastic. I really enjoyed the tour because of him! He should be... More

My husband and I visit Savannah a few times a year. During our last trip we decided to go to Wormsloe Plantation for the first time. The entrance and oak tree lined road is very beautiful!! We paid our entrance fee, $10 per person. Once you drive down the road, there is not a whole lot more to see. There... More

A drive down the canopy of live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss is a sight pictures can not do justice.

We didn't get a chance to go look around the plantation, but we definitely got our fill just from the entrance. Will be back once it cools down to look at the rest.
