Fodor's Expert Review Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens

Mount Pleasant and Vicinity Garden/Arboretum Fodor's Choice
Oak Trees, Boone Hall Plantation, Charleston, South Carolina, USA

A drive through a ½-mile-long live-oak alley draped in Spanish moss introduces you to this still-functioning plantation, the oldest of its kind. Tours take you through the 1936 mansion, the butterfly pavilion, and the heirloom rose garden. Eight slave cabins on the property have been transformed into the Black History in America exhibit, displaying life-size figures, recorded narratives, audiovisual presentations, photos, and historical relics. Seasonal Gullah cultural performances are perennial crowd favorites. Stroll along the winding river, or pluck in-season fruits (like strawberries, peaches, and pumpkins) from the fields.
