Boone Hall plantation is located down a gorgeous row of live oaks with Spanish moss. We learned that Spanish moss is most closely related to the pineapple. It provides a canopy so dense that it is actually many degrees cooler under the trees. The plantation was beautiful, the gardens were definitely well maintained and very well done. Gorgeous. I found... More

This was the first time my husband and I have ever visited a plantation and I have to admit I was a little uneasy about visiting. However, I have to say that Boone Hall did a great job with presenting the information. My husband and I arrived at the plantation at 8:15 am (15 mins before they opened) and they... More

The last time I went to Boone Hall was about 20 years ago. Obviously as a child, everything seems so much bigger and fascinating. Recently returned with my own kids for a walk back in time. The first thing we did was stop by the Butterfly Cafe as we were hot and wanted some drinks. From what I read online... More

My daughter and headed to the Plantation one afternoon. The entrance is beautiful with the old oak trees providing a canopy over the toad. We enjoyed the home tour. There were 50 people in our group and it did feel congested in some of the rooms. Slave Street provided some very historical information. Each home on Slave Street had a... More

It would take you all day to take advantage of all that there is to do on this plantation. But fortunately it's all covered in one low price! We didn't go on all the tours available due to the heat and we were getting tired but we really enjoyed what we did see. The tour of the main house was... More

I wish we would have gone a bit earlier in the day. My husband and I got to boone around 1pm. There were a lot of people and man was it HOT! We signed up for the house tour which was very informative and thankfully the house is air conditioned! We had to wait about 30-40 mins for a trolley... More

It was an exceptionally hot day in Mt. Pleasant and, if my dashboard thermometer had any say, it was screaming 101 degrees! As we drove down the long approach to the Boone Hall Plantation main house, with 200+ year old oaks forming a canopy over our heads, tall sentries protecting us from the southern sun, I wondered how the 295...

We were warned about the heat and summer crowds, so we arrived when they opened at 8:30am. Loved the place. Entering the property through the avenue of the oaks will blood you away. Thevslave quarters are astonishing and gave me an emotional experience that I did not expect. Such a terrible history to remember but so important to do so.... More

We are so glad we stopped at this working plantation On the tour of the property not only do you get historical information but also see how the land is being farmed. The commentary was interesting and visiting the... More
