If you're in Savannah for more than one day include a visit to Fort Pulaski. If you're driving out to Tybee Island it's on the way. The fort is a good way to sense how the civil war was fought in these marshlands. We were lucky enough to hook up with a guided tour and learned so much. Walls are... More

Visited last week and it coolest part is the moat all the way around it. There is not a lot of stuff to see. Probably should have taken the tour so we would have learned more about it. Great visit for a history buff.

Hey, it's a big ol' fort. It's got cannon, it's got history, it's got guided tours. It's got everything a history buff would like. And heck, even if you don't love history all that much. It's a fun way to spend an afternoon:)

Very interesting and pleasurable monument that you an walk around at a leisurely pace and get some impressive views of the water and surrounding locations. Very remote and not crowded by nearby buildings. Very well preserved and interesting to learn the story about the battle fought there, between the North and the South. One of the better forts I have... More

Interesting National Park (monument), with free entry if you have the senior park pass. Interesting for history buffs and anyone interested in forts.

As we drove out through the miles of marsh grass and approached the seemingly featureless blob that was the fort, I wondered why I had come here. Give it a chance. There is a lot of interesting history here. Watch the introductory video at the visitor's center. Check out the underground engineering and watch the huge container ships coming into... More

It costs to get in as its a national park. The trails around the area are not well marked and you can't walk out the little lighthouse. But that said, you can walk around the inside of the fort and they have some lovely well maintained cannons that are wonderful to see. The reason it gets 4 stars is the... More

My husband loves historically places like this. My kids and I are only mildly interested. As others have said, it is way better if you are there for a docent tour. However, I couldn't find any information on tour times until we arrived and we had missed a tour by 30 minutes and it would be another hour until the... More

Fort Pulaski is always a joy to visit. If you want to see some of the damage Hurricane Matthew did, talk a walk on the trails. You'll see all the trees that were knocked down. They have cleared the paths, and are gradually clearing out some of the downed trees, but it will be a long time until nature repairs... More

Very historical and well preserved. We did the self guided tour but staff tours are available. The stairs to the upper level of the fort are steep, but worth the climb up to see all around the area. A wonderful part of our history to explore.
