The Exterior Moat of Fort Pulaski

Fort Pulaski, No Left Turns

"Grandfathered In" Before New Review Format

Right off the back, do not make a left-hand turn at the entrance of Fort Pulaski. The chances of getting rear-ended are pretty high due to the fact of neither a turn lane nor light. Just go down the road and turn around to make the right into Fort Pulaski. Normally the entrance fee for Fort Pulaski is $5 per person, but we arrived toward closing time that they were nice enough to waive the fee. We only had about 30 minutes to explore the fort, which was barely enough time to get around the entire fort. I’ve been to other forts along the coastline and all of them are very similar. They all have high stone walls, a lot of canons and some form of water protection. So if you visit one fort, you basically visited them all with the exception of some minor details. I put Fort Sumter and Fort Macon above when compared to this location.

Side Note: Open from 9 am to 5 pm. They do offer guided tours throughout the day by park rangers. Also, if you follow the Fort Perimeter Trail, it will offer up a great view of the damaged walls of Fort Pulaski. (We failed to take advantage of this due to time constraints)

The Good

  • Plenty of Cannons to See

  • The Staff was Pleasant

  • Strong Structure, Aged Very Well

The Bad

  • The Turn In Road is Kinda Dangerous, Possible Rear End

  • No Other Activities Near By

  • If You Do Not Like Forts or Cannons, You Will Be Disappointed

  • "Price vs Value" could be Consider on the High Side

It Would Be Cool, If You Pin It
