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.

In all fairness, we only did the driving portion, as we were on our way out of town. The trees are beautiful, but that's it. A rather expensive donation is required before you can drive the road or take pictures. It's possible the main part of the site is more exciting, though the description of same by the park ranger...

World's largest tree lined entrance drive. Good movie and okay museum but the outdoor exhibits need more signage.

Visited on Thanksgiving break with my parents and the family dog. It is a beautiful area with great views. The walk is easy and our dog loved it. There is a visitor's center with a small museum, restrooms, and shop.

I brought my dog with me on a guided tour of this historic site. The guide was knowledgeable and funny. There is a bit of walking, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

To be honest, I thought I was going to begrudge the fee to get in, just to see the trees. But I was surprised, I did enjoy the time. There isn't a great amount to see, but the walk around is pretty. The drive is truly stunning, we were there later in the day, about 2pm and really enjoyed the... More

If you're into history then this place is a must go. It was really cool and learned a few things or so that happened there. it was only $10 for a ticket and you could take as much time as you wanted. They had a 13 minute movie playing about what happened at Wormsloe.

Wormsloe's history is pretty cool, and the Visitor's Center and Museum is interesting...but its the beauty of the plantation that will make it all with it. The half mile long oak avenue, the quiet of the woods around you, and the marsh behind the original house is just serene, and if I could, I'd be there every day in the... More

We paid to go into the historic site. But sadly, we didn't get to see much of it since there were a TON of mosquitoes when we went so my fiance didn't want to walk any further. So, if you make this trip make sure to bring a lot of Off Spray. When you first enter, there is an old... More

We came to see the beautiful tunnel of trees, but also enjoyed learning more about this family plantation. Had an interesting museum, and helpful personnel.

What an scene, seeing all those beautiful trees, like reaching to each other and covered in Spanish Moss. Gorgeous
