Fort Pulaski National Monument
In 1847, Fort Pulaski was considered a state-of-the-art defense system, though it fell easily to Union troops during the Civil War. The fort has been well preserved, and visitors may roam through its protective brick walls. A video presentation, exhibits offer a historical visual while park rangers share details on the history of the monument and its role in history. The monument consists of 5,623 acres including nature trails, picnic areas and spectacular views of the salt marshes.
tybee is the most relaxing , laid back and fun place to spend a couple of days -- no pressure to do anything unless you absolutly want to -- my wife and i live about 4 hours away and we go there five or six times a year --we also travel extensively throught the country but tybee is our favorite - early in the morning the dolphins are playing close to the beach and you can actually watch them better from the shore then anywhere else because you can track their route - with the variety of lodging on the island anything
you want is available from very upscale and right on the beach to more homey and a block away - the price is reflected in nearness to the beach-
the people are very easy to get along with and go out of their way to help out . dining like lodging is strictly a matter of taste ( lol ) you can have full sit down dinners or go to more relaxed places like the crab shack or stingrays -- no bad places have been found yet--for anyone who wants to enjoy themselves and be able to really relax tybee island is there for you
I guess the things I saw in some locations didn't look original to me and I expect it to. Like heave equipment that would have made it through the battle. I also thought there would be more to see on the inside that you could really get in to see.
Neat experience for the kids and mom and dad. We got to see and the canon get fired, walk around the immaculate historic grounds, cross the moat(there had been an alligator in there before)all the rooms were awesome, the fort was just really cool!!!
Great park with a very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful island setting and very well-preserved structure offering great fun for people of all ages. Great deal for Savannah area as well. $3 per adult gets you a six day pass into the park which includes the fort, picnic area, trails, and fishing areas. Also on the way to Tybee beach.
Very afordable to take the kids and family to learn and see some of Savannahs history. The fort is still in tact though you can still see where some of the musket holes and such are from the Civil War.
Yes, I was forced by my man to go to Fort Pulaski. These types of things just aren't my forte. However, once there I really enjoyed it! It's amazing to look at this fort and imagine the lives affected by the history there. Also, compared to Fort Sumter in Charleston, SC, it's in great shape. Nice area around the Fort, easy to walk around and inside - I encourage you to check it out!
This is a great place to go and walk around. The Fort is very weel preserved and there are nature trails that are well kept. If you enjoy history and the civil war era itself, this one I wouldnt pass up for the price!
