It is more than just a fort. There are historic trails to walk. I love the walk through the cedars and yaupon hollies to the old Cockspur Island Lighthouse. And all the staff are the friendliest. Love Amber Debardelaben, Candice Wyatt, and Katie Purcell.

Fort Pulaski National Monument visit is like opening a window into history. Well maintained, well-marked and very accessible off the parkway on Tybee Island.

This is an interesting place to visit.The views were wonderful. The history was very interesting, and you could imagine it full of soldiers. A little shop selling lots of bits and pieces.

Just cost $7 per person. This is a really neat monument fro the Civil War The Fort is beautiful and even nicer taking a ic from the main road. You must visit this special place.

This is one of the bigger forts we've visited. It's kept up nicely, lots to see. The property is quite large with trails and a separate trail to the Cockspur Island Lighthouse. Worth a visit!

The admission fee into the historic site is worth the money. You can do a self guided tour take one with one of the rangers who do an excellent narration as they walk you around the site. They do not charge for their service but you can leave tips. There is a short movie that can be watched before entering... More

Really worth the time ! A well preserved fort full of history. If you can arrange to talk to a ranger at the fort do so. His talk was invaluable and we learned so much. Exhibits and a gift shop are on site

We had to excellent guides/instructors. Dot was a volunteer and Andrew Miller was a Ranger. Both obviously knew their stuff and both gave you a wonderful interpretation of what life must have been like in the fort during the Civil War.

As you step across the draw bridge, you find yourself transported into the past. You will see how the confederate soldiers lived and how they fought for what they believed in. As you explore the interior grounds of the fort, the detailed architecture symbolizes the pride the soldiers had for their fort. History lovers of all ages cannot miss this... More

Based on other reviews of things to do in the Savannah, we decided to combine this with a visit to Tybee Island. The fort was a fascinating place to explore! The fort and the grounds can be easily explored on your own. Allow at least an hour for the fort alone. Look for the Civil War cannon ball still lodged... More
