About
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.

    Good place to get away from the city for a couple of hours
    This is a nice place to escape the city for a couple of hours. You feel like you're way out in the middle of nowhere, but the gate to the property is right on the edge of Savannah. If you're expecting a major tourist attraction, then you might be a little disappointed, but if you just want to get out, enjoy a walk, explore nature, and learn a little history of the area, then this is your place. It's $10 for adults to get in. I thought that was a little steep, considering there isn't much on the property to maintain, but it is what it is.

    Very pretty
    This was a fun couple hour trip! It wasn’t overly busy so we got lots of great pics without people on an early Sat. We toured the grounds, took tons of pics. A great was to spend an hour or 2.

    A must place to visit
    We are so glad we had the opportunity to spend some time here. The tickets are only $9 per person and well worth it. You tour at your own leisure. Stop at the museum store first and watch a 10-15 minute movie, to learn the history before you walk the grounds. As you enter the site you will want to get out of your car and take a picture, probably one of the most beautiful entrances. If you like history this is a most place to visit.

    Those trees!!
    We came here because I wanted to get that photo of the trees at entrance. We arrived right when they opened so the road would be clear of cars. Since there was no one else around we were able to stop several times along the way to the visitor center. The trails are an easy walk and there are many scenic areas so I was able to take some amazing photos! This was our favorite stop of the trip!

    A walk through history
    Really enjoyed Wormsloe! The trees, yes the trees were incredible and made for beautiful pictures. We enjoyed walking the grounds and seeing the tabby ruins. An employee in period clothing was engaging and talked about and took questions about the ruins- very informative. Would definitely visit here again!

    Neat stop
    Obviously everyone loves this place for the Insta photos but I really enjoyed the history part of it. We walked down the full driveway and just took in the enormity of the place. The guide at the old Jones house was very informative.

    Early colonial history in Georgia
    At this site you pay for your admission before driving the very bumpy road. The speed limit is 15 mph and you do not was to drive any faster. The drive is lined with live oak and Spanish moss. At the end of the drive there is a parking area and the visitor center. This features a small museum, small gift shop and a theater with a movie featuring the history of this site. There are several trails to choose. We simply chose to walk to the tabby ruins because it is an easy flat trail.

    Junior Ranger program good for kids
    Of course the photo ops were great. We went to the visitor center and walked to the ruins of the Tabby House. Giftshop employee told me daughter she could become a junior ranger and that was exciting for her.

    It was a nice little stop. The oak lined drive was beautiful. I appreciated that they had planted new trees to replace the ones that died or was damaged. It was an interesting experience. Recommend, didn't realize the movie's that had been made there. Now I have to watch them all...lol

    Great history, beautiful tree row
    If you are only interested in the tree lane, there are really two options here for visiting the iconic tree lane. You can park for 5 minutes and stand at the sign for the road and take pictures and look. Or you can park and get tickets for the plantation. Then you can drive down the lane of trees and stay until they close. *This is not where Forest Gump ran. It looks similar, however. The plantation belongs to the family of Noble Jones. Family members still live on property in a private residence. The tour of the plantation is self-guided. There is a small museum with a video. Bring water and comfortable shoes. The plantation is through wooded areas on gravel paths. We saw lots of skinks in the woods and crabs along the shore. The fortified walls of the original house remain, the site of the original grave is marked (although the remains are no longer there), the banks of oysters from Native American piles, and a few colonial houses are along the paths. The path is at least a mile to see the historic sites, and there are additional paths you can walk if you are so inclined.

Fantastic day with a very knowledgeable tour guide. Dennis knew so much about the cemetery and Wormsloe. He also knew a lot about Savannah. He was able to answer all our questions. The bus was comfortable.

Wormsloe is great for tree pictures! There is a small check in area just past the entrance gate on the right. After checking in, you're off down the road through the beautiful trees. You'll get some fantastic photos along the way! At your next stop there is a parking area, and a building with a small museum, small gift shop, and bathrooms. There are easy walking paths where again, you'll be able to get more great photos.

Disappointed in the lack of historical context and information available. The only guided tour was a “black history” tour, and we were informed that the video presentation that was at the site formerly was replaced with a scroll of former slaves’ names. The rangers onsite seemed unwilling or unable to provide any historical background.

Sad that the history of a beautiful and interesting site must be suppressed in favor of ideology. Not worth the cost of admission.

Honestly the view down that road of trees is worth your time and money alone! We went at the end of the day, arrived at 4, it closed at 5. We moved quickly to see the remains of the original fortified colonist home and the family cemetery. Without a tour to give context it was hard to grasp the significance of things. There are many layers of history here, early colonial settlement, American Revolution events, plus the Civil War, so there's a lot to sort out. For us, it was a bit anti-climatic, and we wished we'd just gotten to the Bonaventure Cemetery instead - it's easier to understand gravestones! So we recommend you go here on a tour or just go to Bonaventure cemetery.

Historical park close to downtown Savannah, famous for the picturesque long entrance road lined with arching mature live oak trees adorned with Spanish Moss.

Perfect photo opportunity!

There is a small fee to enter the park. If you do not have time to spend in the park, you can park momentarily in the bus parking area to take a few memorable photos.

The park offers trails with opportunities to hear and see birds as well as small animals.

It is well worth a short stop, even if just for a few photos.

Just echoing other reviews. Loads of history. We ran out of time so weren’t able to hike all the paths. Spent about an hour, could easily have spent more time. Be sure to walk out to the tabby house ruins.

Wormsloe Historic Site in Savannah is a Southern paradise, where time stands still amidst majestic live oak trees draped in Spanish moss. The centuries-old trees form a natural canopy, revealing layers of history and splendor with every step. Exploring the well-preserved colonial estate, we marveled at the enchanting atmosphere created by sprawling branches and mossy adornments. Amidst the tabby walls' ruins, we envisioned the past and admired Wormsloe's resilience. The site's historical significance and meticulous preservation efforts were evident, making our visit a serendipitous encounter with Savannah's rich history. Lucky to experience this timeless beauty, Wormsloe seamlessly blends nature and history, leaving an indelible mark on the soul of the Old South.

Last ticket sells and gates close at 4:30pm even though posted closing time is 5:00pm. I arrived at 4:28pm and was refused ticket. I explained I was from out of state and just wanted to stroll through the live oak drive. Important note for this review…if planning a quick trip arrive well in advance of 4:30.

So disappointing. Only impressive thing about it is driving through the entrance. Beyond that it is seriously just a walk in the woods. Can’t believe they charge admission for this.

We were visiting a friend in Savannah who recommended this place. After paying $30 for admission, we drove down the beautiful drive between the oaks. We took the guided tour which was a joke. The tabby ruins are nothing special, and the plantation house is a private residence so you can't even see it from the road. Basically we paid $30 for a nature walk which we could do at our campground at Skidaway Island for free. Save your money and watch a YouTube video on this place.
