Probably one of the most iconic Georgia State Parks is Wormsloe State Historic Site. The park is known for the picturesque live oaks that drape over the dirt road leading to the home. Wormsloe is located in Savannah, GA near the coast, making it a great stopping point for those visiting the Georgia coast as it is on the way to downtown Savannah. We got there early in the morning, which we recommend, because we were able to capture the perfect shot of the avenue, whereas shortly after cars were constantly driving up and down. After you drive down the avenue, you can stop off in the visitor center to explore the museum and watch a short film on the historic property. Afterwards, visitors can walk around a nature trail that leads you to an old tabby structure that is the oldest structure in all of Georgia. Tabby buildings are unique to the coast and are made by crushing oyster shells to create lime.


 Along the trail there is also a colonial life area that provides visitors with living history encounters. The property belonged to a prominent colonist, and the descendants still live on the property today. Wormsloe is a smaller state park, but full of history and the opportunity to get a perfect photo.
