Overview
More
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.

If you're expecting to see a plantation house you'll be disappointed. There is a huge home on the property but it's not accessible to the public. The original house is really just a foundation now. The short film about the history of the area and...More

We arrived too late in the day to fully enjoy this location. The park ranger was really nice and extended our pass until the next day. The employees inside were engaging and full of information about local animals and even the baseball team in town!

Beautiful views and a relaxing hike. Kids enjoyed exploring the colonial replica area. Would have been neat to see one of the reenactments

The view once again, breath taking. There was once a plantation, formed by one of the original Georgia's settlers. But what is left are ruins. There are pathways for hiking and a small museum. The descendents of that family live in another house built in...More

We were welcomed at the entrance by an informative employee who answered our questions. The tree lined drive was a delight. Plenty of walking with all kinds of nature--flora and fauna typical of the area. A short film set the stage for viewing the ruins...More

I visited these old plantation ruins a couple of weeks ago. I felt like the most beautiful and worth while thing to see was this amazing tree canopied lane that leads into the park. We did walk around in the heat and humidity to see...More

I am only giving this 2/5. The gate and front of the plantation is beautiful, however the actual site is extremely disappointing. The video at the visitors center is informative and interesting. The Colonial site leaves a lot to be desired and not taken care...More

We actually rented a car and drove to Wormsloe. After our visit, we drove over to Bonaventure.

Almost positive that scene was filmed at the Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, SC. Perhaps you could google it to get more info?
