Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
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.

The tree lined entry way is enough reason to visit Wormsloe but do make sure you time your visit to take the tour. The ruins are not much to look at but the tour explains the area and was interesting and informative. We took a 30 minute hike on one of the trails and it was relaxing, quiet and beautiful. We did not run into anyone else on the trailhead. We enjoyed spending some outdoor nature time during our Savannah stay and we enjoyed our two hours spent at Wormsloe.

The entrance with over 400 live oak trees is worth the trip here all by itself. Interesting history lesson of Noble Jones and his role in history; had never heard of him before our visit here. Lots of trails and all are easy walks with several spots to view and study if this is something that interests you.

I think the mixed reviews reflect the lack of research of some visitors before they decide to visit the Wormsloe historic Site. I've heard the same reaction to visits to Jamestown ruins, vs Jamestown recreation village. One is the real deal, the other is entertainment. Hint: A visit to Wormsloe will be enhanced if you show some serious interest in the history and engage the guides with questions. This brings them out of their routine speeches. See the short video and imagine how a British debtor could go from rags to riches without a government welfare system. Certainly, the 400+ oak trees make an impressive entrance and the opportunity to simply enjoy the natural beauty of this plantation is worth the small admission. The village, grave site, shell midden and marsh add a full challenge to the visitor's ability to use his/her imagination.,

We had a very enjoyable visit to Wormsloe State Historic Site.
we enjoyed the orientation film, museum exhibits and our guided tour of the ruins. We were invited to ride on the golf cart because on of the other couple on the tour could not walk long distances. The big rabbit at the entrance station was a special treat too!

We had this attraction on our to-do list and stopped by to check it out. The tree-lined road was not very impressive the day we were there as the trees looked more dead than alive. The entrance shows age and there is a sign at the entrance that states "no photographing of tree lined road until you purchase tickets". We came across some visitors who had just visited and they were not very impressed so we went inside to see about getting tickets and the young man was not very friendly. He began rambling a script and with pen in hand waved across a map of the place while looking at us saying his script. He really wasn't pointing at anything specific on the map that matched what he was saying. When we found out the price we told him we'd think about it. So we went outside and talked it over and decided it wasn't worth the cost and time so didn't go any further. So this review is based on the first impression of the place, the visitors that were less than thrilled with their visit and the lack of enthusiasm of the employee.
