    We loved this tour. It was very hot so I would recommend going not during summer. The tour we did was a little long but the cannon shots were really awesome!

    Super interesting place and a lot of history here. Always good to visit a piece of history instead of just reading it.

    Worth stopping to learn the history of the fort and enjoy the beautiful scenery. The Park service folks were very friendly and knowledgeable.

    Nice place for sight seeing. Be sure to play around in the tunnels after touring the fort.

    Built in the 1830s and 1840s on Cockspur Island, this masonry fort was designed to defend Savannah.

    Free Senior Pass (62+) lifetime! Includes all passengers in your car! Trails were difficult to ride w our beach bikes. Had to stick w paved roadways. Saw deer, birds galore... Great casual biking!

    Kids 5-8 can become a junior ranger by completing the Junior Ranger Handbook. It also helps them get excited and learn a little more about the fort.

    Did you know? After the fall of Fort Pulaski in 1862, the island became an important point on the Underground Railroad. Hundreds of escaped slaves traveled to the fort and gained their freedom. Read more

    Don't skip the lighthouse walk! It was fun and beautiful and you get to see lots of little crabs! :)

    Worth the $3. If you ask the rangers to unlock the peephole door for pictures - they will. Skip the lighthouse walk - you can see it from the road.
