Wormsloe State Historic Site Oaks

Wormsloe State Historic Site Oaks

After blubbing like a baby whilst watching “Last Song” with Miley Cyrus (yes, it’s confession time)…which is an excellent chick flick by the way…I discovered this little gem on the DVD’s special features.

Nelson Coates was the production designer for both “Last Song” and the movie’s theme song video for “When I Look At You“. It was his job to scour Savannah, Georgia (USA) for perfect filming locations.

One spot – amongst many other amazing locations that Nelson discovered – was in the Wormsloe State Historic Site. There are over 400 (yes, I typed that correctly) majestic, live oak trees lining the avenue at the entry of the plantation. The trees are so immense, and so old, that their branches have joined together at the top to form a glorious bower. Nelson described this oak alley as being “like a cathedral of nature“.

Tourism Georgia can thank the makers of “Last Song” for increasing their tourist count by at least one…when I can get there!
