When in Charleston, this is a worthwhile visit to Johns island. The angel oak tree is a marvel of nature and just fun to experience. I believe it's 300-400 years old. Great for kids and families. Picture taking a must.

Angel Oak Tree is a living wonder. Estimated at 1400-1500 years old this tree survives today as a city park of Charleston. The tree spreads her canopy out far and wide, enjoy some time under her branches as you think about her long life. Well worth the trip out of Charleston to see. The gift shop does need to be...

This is now a city park for Charleston. The tree is very impressive. It is so massive that it can't support its own weight. Some of the branches are supported with pilings. Admission is free. Worth the stop if you are on James Island.

The location of the Angel Oak is in a modest little Park but definitely worth checking out. Its only a couple minutes off the main road on the way to Kiawah Island.

Really amazing how this tree hasn't fell down. They say it is 1500 years old but I highly doubt Jesus got his first kiss here. Really cool place to see overall.

Quiet... refreshing... out of the way. Take a lunch with you and don't forget your camera. The growth pattern of this behemoth is quit amazing. Branches stretch in every direction. I enjoyed a 30 minute break from my hectic day to experience nature at its finest.

This is a very impressive tree. However, it is impressive not only because of its size and beauty, but also because of the history and the feeling it gives when you visit it. You really feel the South and its history. It is a natural wonder well worth visiting.

We pulled in right before the site was about to close for the day in a gentle drizzle. The size of this beautiful live oak is to behold. How could this tree survive hurricanes, winds, lighting and most of all, man for so long?? Be sure and stop by if you are in the area as enjoy this great and... More
