Fort Pulaski, No Left Turns
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)
