Angel Oak Tree is definitely worth a visit if you're in the Charleston area. We visited on a rainy Sunday afternoon, and it was still pretty. There's a dirt road to get there, but it's flat and easy for any vehicle. It's free to visit, but it's behind a fenced area which means you must check the hours to be... More

Among the old oaks in the area, this one definitely stands out. Its sheer size and gnarled branches give it a majestic atmosphere. It was a quick 10-minute stop on our way from Charleston to Savannah, so definitely worth the little detour.

This tree has hours. This tree has rules. This tree has supports all over it. This tree is surrounded by signs. This tree has it's own gift shop. This tree is impressive, however, it is hard to enjoy it as it is. Go, spend 10 minutes there and move on.

This tree is so massive, beautiful and amazing like something you would see in a sci-fi movie. A bit of a drive, but you can stay a few minutes or a few hours. I saw lots of people giving it hugs. Pictures just can't capture all of it.

Tempted to climb this tree but its off limits to help with preserving this beautiful tree! Mystical and yet inviting to spend time under its canopy. Spend a few minutes or a few hours, but it is worth a stop!

I liked looking at this tree. Its girth is impressive and I appreciate what they're doing to preserve it. There's an undeniable sense of awe that comes over a person when viewing it for the first time. Worth a stop!

Quite possibly one of the most awe inspiring things I have ever seen. An absolutely amazing organism, HUGE! Tough to get great photos due to signs and surrounding area, but still an unreal thing to see. Some of the branches are as thick as giant oaks themselves! They grow both above and underground as they wind their way away from... More

There are certain natural wonders that photos can only barely give you a glimpse of their majestic and mystical being. Angel Oak is one of these. Like the Grand Canyon, it can only truly be experienced in person. The energy and time collected in such formations of beauty can be felt and "heard" by those sensitive and patient enough to...

Overall a nice visit. The Angel Oak tree is a sight to behold. The only draw back is the signage all around the tree it takes away from the beauty.
