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 1.5 miles entrance to into the Wormsloe Historic Site,driving down a majestic driveway, lined on either side by over 400 majestic oak trees is worth the trip to see this Plantation. Wormsloe is the only "standing" architectural remnant in Savannah from the founding of Georgia which makes the trip even more fascinating. After taking a million pictures at the entrance (It is well worth it to Pay the $8 per adult fee and travel inside!) drive to the end and you will come to a small museum where you can watch a film (optional) of the history of Wormsloe and take either a guided or self-guided tour. The detailed map makes the self-guided a very easy option! Most take the self-guided tour as to enjoy at your own pace.
The "Tabby" ruins are fascinating.The Jones house was originally constructed of “tabby,” a mixture of sand, water, lime and oyster shells. You can still see the shells! To think of constructing a home in the mid-1700's is mindboggling to most of us, and to see the materials used makes it that much more impressive....
**This is a WALKING Plantation through the woods**
**WORTH YOUR TIME, WORTH THE ENTRANCE FEE, WORTH THE WALK**

Had seen pictures of a country road with majestic oak trees on both sides, and it looked like a dream. We found it today, and it was just as beautiful as the magazine pics. We stopped only at the entrance and took beautiful pictures, but for a fee, you can go further onto the property and take a tour.

An interesting and beautiful site but I would only recommend doing it if you time it so you can take the tour. The tour is interesting and places everything in perspective -- without the tour it is hard to visualize what was there and why this place matters. The film and museum are also a must.

We found this site when looking on TripAdvisor for things to do in Savannah. The live oak drive leading in is simply beautiful. At the end of this drive, you get to visit a small museum with exhibits on the history of Wormsloe. Don't skip the film. Don't skip the tour. Both made the visit more than worthwhile. We learned a great deal about the beginnings of Georgia as a colony. Overall, it was more than worth the time and money if you are interested in the history of the area.

We got there on a Sunday at 4:40 to find out it closes at 5pm. We did get to go thru the front gate and take pictures of the beautiful road that is supposed to lead up the the historic site but after reading some reviews we pretty much figured there was not allot left to see. We took some nice pictures of the front gate and of the road but that was about it. Then we stopped at Driftaway Cafe and that was a bad idea!! Thats on their review
