|About these ratings|
Named for Revolutionary War hero Casimir Pulaski, it was here that General Robert E. Lee was first assigned after graduating from West Point. Today, you can explore the fort's colossal ramparts, intimidating stone towers, drawbridges and moats. Frequent re-enactments allow you to see what life in the fort was like back in its heyday. After you've gotten your fill of Pulaski, head to the nearby Tybee Lighthouse for some fantastic views of the coast.
The Fort Pulaski National Monument is located on Tybee Island about 15 miles east of central Savannah along I-80. It is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., although hours may vary slightly depending on the season. A $3 entrance fee -- which covers all areas of the fort -- is required for all visitors 16 and over. For more information, check out the monument's website.
