Wormsloe State Historic Site, Savannah, Georgia Georgia

Description

Wormsloe State Historic Site is in an out-of-the-way area in Savannah, not a very appealing area with endless strip malls and traffic lights. The plantation has a long canopy of trees at the entrance that you've probably seen in Savannah marketing materials. It looks better in summer, when the trees are green. The entrance gate is spooky and quite cool. 
Apparently, you must pay to drive down the entrance driveway under the trees but everyone seems to do it for free, taking selfies. There are some walks you can do at the historic site if you do pay, including a nice walk to the observation deck and walks around the various ruins.
The entrance fee is too expensive for this site. It should be something like $6 per car, like other state-owned sites.
Check out the free Savannah Botanical Gardens as well, which is a small garden that only takes about ten minutes to walk around. It is six minutes drive away.
And check out all the interesting things to do in Savannah town.
