Definitely at the top of my list of places to visit in Savannah was the Wormsloe Plantation. That visual of the famous Forrest Gump road lined with live oak trees and hanging Spanish moss was forever emprinted on my mind and on a drizzly morning it looked exactly how I imagined....

The drive (I wanted to walk) down the live oak road is about 1.5 miles, with nothing but Spanish moss above and gravel beneath and it's completely magicial.

Once at the end of the road, there's a small museum with artifacts that were unearthed at the plantation. Then it's a short walk to the tabby (material used to build the structure) ruins...There are a few nature trails and look-out points along the way, as well as a pile of "tabby" material, now worn down to the ground.
