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.

Most everything has been covered by other reviewers. If you want to travel down one of the most beautiful entrances in the US, you need to go. For me that was worth the price of admission alone. It was only about $10 a person I think. Well worth it. Go with the right expectations and you will enjoy yourself. Go... More

This place has the perfect plantation entrance, with the spaced live oaks creating the canopy we always imagine in southern antebellum stories. There is a small museum with a film, some things that were found when the site was excavated, and the remains of the first permanent home. But overall, it wasn't particularly interesting. There ae people walking around in... More

The longest oak Grove in the world, this place was beautiful! Good tour guide explained the history of the grounds. Interesting that the 9th generation still lives on the grounds

This is a very good way to spend a couple hours. The place is beautiful and is very interesting as it relates to the history of a savannah, GA.

Just driving along this majestic avenue is so ethereal... worth the trip out of town. Keep touring around & visit Isle of Hope & then Bonaventure Cemetery & spend time looking around the Mercer Family Plot featuring the grave of Johnny Mercer.

A beautiful place just a short drive from the city. If you want to take pictures of the entryway, I advise going early. We got there around 10 or 10:30 and there was some traffics, but by the time we left it was crowded so taking pictures without people/cars would have been hard.

This was one of the best parts of my trip and I'm so glad we took time to stop. It's a great place for a good walk among he backdrop of idyllic scenery. And the trees seem to model for you, perfectly.

Enjoyed a lovely morning exploring Wormsloe Historic Site. Recommend watching the film before exploring the grounds. Bring shoes for walking. Nice loop trail.

This is a must see while in Savannah GA. Photos will never do it justice. To start with you will get to drive down a mile and a half oak tree grove that is covered in Spanish moss. At the end is an old house/fort and a small museum. It is $10 per person to visit but so worth it.

Entrance is awesome, long road lined with oak trees covered in spanish moss. Take in the museum and the short film first. Nature trail is easy to walk and the ruins are very interenting. Lucky enough to spot 3 dolphins in the marsh waters.
