  • A beautiful picturesque stopover, well worth the 15 minute drive from downtown Savannah. Some lovely photo opportunities of nature at it's finest. A very affordable entry charge. But watch for opening...  more »
  • Stumbled upon Wormsloe while checking out the beautiful homes on the Isle of Hope as we journeyed from Tybee Island to Savannah. The oak lined drive is breathtaking. The tabby ruins are worth the $10 ...  more »
  • Highly suggest you just pull into the entrance and take pictures there. Everything past the entrance is not well done and not worth it.  more »

  • Slightly expensive for a Georgia historic site $10 per person. Nice staff. Check in and pay at the small cabin at entrance only a few parking spots but they turn over quickly. Drive down the oak lined ave to the visitor center - looks like it was built in the 90's. A lot more parking and larger vehicle parking available there. Happened to arrive before a walking tour so we joined in. They pointed out the highlights. Seems the park is used for reenactments sometimes. Interesting history info, but our guide was not quite sure what all the plants were. Easy flat walk. As we left a wedding was being set up.
  • Great place to visit! So beautiful! The property has a few hiking trails! There is also a small section with picnic tables to enjoy a family picnic.
  • The land is beautiful and fun to explore. Sucks you cannot actually get close to plantation as it is family owned that live there. Kinda a high entrance fee to only see the grounds and very small ruins. The drive up to the main area is beautiful with all the trees! Good picture location
  • We did not go in to the actual historic site, but the oak tree alley with the Spanish moss is just breathtaking. We actually came back two days in a row (first day was raining and then the sun came out the second day so we needed to see it again) because it's such a nice view. I will keep this place in my heart forever, might also be because my boyfriend went down on one knee and proposed to me under the magical tree line ❤
  • Goofle said expect to spend 15 minutes here... This is wrong. The museum may take that long, but there are 6 miles of trails and history to see. If you walk around to see it all and take photos, expect 2 hours or more. The tpurs are fun as well.
