While on business in Savannah I was looking for a way to spend a few hours. I drove out to Tybee Island and stopped by Fort Pulaski on the way back to the city. It is one of the better forts I've visited. It is your classic masonry fort with a moat and good view of the coastal area. The... More

This is a great old fort, I'm in construction so I love old brick structures. If you like history this is a must see while in town.

Excellently civil war era fort complete with some civil war damage left in the outer walls. Very good visitor center with a short film and excellent access to the fort and can go on top the parapet using stairs. Takes your mind back I. Time to the civil war era. It is not a fancy fort but is worth a... More

If you have time during your visit, be sure to go on a Ranger led tour. Our guide, Ranger Jamie Niles, was excellent. He was a good interpreter of the history here, involved the group by asking questions, and made sure everyone's questions were answered. It was obvious that he enjoys his job of helping others experience the history of... More

It's pretty amazing to be able to walk in a Civil War fort and see what it was like as well as learn how the people lived there. For its time, it was state of the art and to think so many people worked there to protect what they felt was right. It is nice that you can see it... More

We have traveled all over the U.S. exploring all kinds of forts. Finally, we found a fort that was actually used in a battle. It seems most forts that were built just before the civil were abandoned and never used. Ft. Pulaski was originally a federal fort taken by the confederates before being captured by union forces early in the... More

We had a really knowledgeable and engaging tour guide - Jaime was his name I believe. He was a great story teller, and engaged the small crowd and kept everyone's interest. The views from the top of the Fort were great! My mom was in a wheelchair because of a recent leg break so she wasn't able to get to... More

A nice visit with great park guides. The fort is seemingly far from civilization, but when you get there you can spend time at the museum or walking around the grounds. Would be fun to spend a day there.

We LOVE Ft. Pulaski. It is very dog friendly and we enjoy taking our pups to hike and take a dip in the river. The walk out to the Cockspur Lighthouse is always beautiful. I've been inside the fort many times and still enjoy visiting.
