The Latta Plantation is a beautiful historic site with period dress and visitor interaction. Its a nice tour that can be done in 1-3 hours. I think this especially important for families with small kids that perhaps cannot hold their attention and get restless. Most of the attractions do have stairs to be seen. There is a nice gift shop... More

So much to see and do and learn. Living animals, tons of original details. Very historic. Guided tour with someone in period dress after which you are free to roam. Lots of green areas and a few trails. Go across the street to the Latta Cemetery to see some of the original families grave stones!

We have toured Latta Plantation many times, we live 10 minutes from there. It's nice to walk around the grounds and look at the animals and the outbuildings. Sometimes they have some ladies cooking in the kitchen out back and they always do a nice presentation. The house is beautiful and it provides a nice glimpse in how the Lattas... More

We had my grandson's 7 birthday party at Lata Plantation Equestrian Center. we had an amazing time. The young lady who ran the party made sure each and every child had a fun time, they went on a trail ride, had fun at the barn visiting the different horses. All around great time.

The Latta Plantation sits just behind a large tract of residential neighborhoods, but once on the property, you feel propelled back to the turn of the century. The site is a living history tour of an 1800s plantation and grounds Great walking trails and even better yet, they do a 3 hour Segway tour of the park for only $35... More

Very interesting and a great learning experience. Lots of history on the plantation. I enjoyed seeing how things were back in time. You are allowed to walk around and see the different buildings. Staff is very knowledgeable

I had a day off and didn't know what to do. And as European I have always been intrigued about plantations and slavery, etc. So I went. We always expect plantations to be like in "Gone with the Wind", but this one is different. It's an amazing place to go if you are into history and want to learn something... More

Took my 2 daughters for what a thought would be an enjoyable time , riding horse and enjoying the outdoors... I was wrong. It is pretty bad when a 12 year old , who loves horses and to ride says , " they were very rude let's not go back there again" First if not for Jan and her attitude... More

Great place to visit. Kids learn about animals, insects, etc, Summer day camps, hay rides, ghost walk at Halloween. Always something to do.
