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.

The entrance drive is the essence of the south (although if you're tempted to park your car and stroll remember that it is over a mile and if you walk one way you're going to have to walk back...and passing cars will kick up the dust.) There are a number of trails around the site, ideal for taking your time... More

We stopped in Savannah for the night while taking a road-trip. While searching for quick nearby activities, we ended up coming here. The moment we entered the premises, we were blown away by these beautiful oaks. I was thinking the pictures we saw on the internet must be manicured but the real view and the experience was 10 times better!.... More

Drove the 1.5 mile ride of the beautiful weeping oaks. It was worth the drive out just to see the trees. If you don't have a car I don't think it's worth it to join a tour or rent a car. Beautiful pix.

This was one of the original land grants given by King George. Originally it was founded to be slave-free. The ruins are an excellent example of the building material of that time - tabby. If you have trouble walking, this is not the place for you. The path circles through the woods to the ruins of the plantation and back... More

It was winter and still the trees are beautiful! Great place to take pictures and walk around. I would say it was a must when visiting Savannah.

Was there on a Sunday to take advantage of Free Museum Day in Georgia and there was a 'Colonial faire and Muster" event as part of Georgia history activities. It was a good event for families with young kids to get a feel of life during the colonial times. The current house today is private property, off limits to public.... More

My main motivation for visiting this site was seeing the oaks. What magnificence! Truly something that only can be seen in the South - it is every bit as beautiful as I expected. The long drive has hundreds of Spanish moss laden oak trees lining the drive into the site. What a testament that they are still standing after hurricanes.... More

Perfect afternoon trip while in Savannah. A great walk in the woods to see the ruins. There's no access to the current plantation home but there's a small museum with interesting pictures and artifacts. Worth the drive out just to see the beautiful avenue of oaks.
