Owner description: 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.

“Walk through history”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

From the entrance to the ruins to the views of the marsh; this is a place to see when in savannah. There are entry fees but they are modest. There are close to 4 miles of walking trails and a lovely 1 mile drive-able entrance. The ruins and the small walk around is enough to keep you occupied for a while. The larger walk will take you some time, but the views are worth it.

The entrance with the 400 live Oaks is worth the trip by itself. Gorgeous. Definitely make the trip here if you're in Savannah.

There Isn't much to see here except the ruins, but the mile and a half drive to the ruins is spectacular under the moss draped trees. Really a fascinating history of the family, I would re oo Ed going here for a leisurely few hours.

“Gorgeous entrance”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

The mile-long oak tree lining up as you enter Wormsloe is just breath-taking!!! It gives you an old feel. The best time to visit is during sundown. We had the unfortunate decision of paying and totally going in... After passing by the oak trees, there was not much to see or do... I mean, if you're into nature trails--- then this is the place for you. But if you're only after the oak-trees, I say, you skip paying. Just take pictures by the entrance.

“That famous driveway!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

We loved that long driveway- that alone would be well worth the tour! We also found the video offered in the visitor's centre was very well done and gave us a great explanation of local history.

We think it would be worth the drive and it was lovely in December with no other tourists around.
