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 history of the roadway is interesting. The trees are eerily scenic while the sun shines down on them. I'd only recommend this place if you have time. What you see among the tourist pictures are basically it. If you see a couple of these same trees.. you've seen them all. It's the same view for the next 1.5 miles.

The Live Oak trees covered with Spanish Moss on the 1 1/2 mile drive to the site is breathtaking! You can take pics without paying to visit the site. The entrance is well worth the $10 if you are a history buff and just a peaceful walk around the grounds.

We visited this site recently and enjoyed a very easy and relaxing walk around the grounds. Dog-friendly place for some excellent outdoor time. Worth the drive.

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
