You hear a lot about war when visiting Savannah. The Revolutionary War, the Civil War, you name it- the region saw its fair share of war over the years.
It isn't until you visit the Civil War-era fort, Fort Pulaski between Savannah and Tybee Island, that you get to see this history up-close. While this one produced a turning point in the war for the Union, it has had a lasting impact on warfare since its fateful battle.
So when you are in Savannah (especially if heading to Tybee Island for a beach getaway), stopping at Fort Pulaski National Monument is a must.
