Free admission for Ft. Pulaski.

Located just west of Tybee Island off of Hwy 80 is Fort Pulaski, built between 1829 and 1847. During the Civil War, Union forces camped on Tybee Island and fired their powerful new cannons at the fort, damaging it severely and making brick forts obsolete worldwide. Fort Pulaski is a fine example of historic military architecture. Along with its exhibits, Fort Pulaski offers an abundance of outdoor activities including hiking, biking on several great nature trails located around the fort. You can also enjoy bird watching, identifying plant life and fishing. 

Fort and Visitor Center Hours: 9am-5pm. Cockspur Island Bridge closes at 5:15 pm daily.
