Boone Hall has a great amount of southern character and charm. The history is rich and run deeps, very good all inclusive price that covers all the events. The walking Slave history is interactive yet has great ambience to all the building.

We are local and always enjoy taking our out of town guests here. The tour of the house is about 30 minutes in duration and worth every minute of it. The rest of the plantation is extremely enjoyable to do at your own pace. Don't miss the Gullah presentation. I learn something new every time I visit.

A beautiful piece of history tucked away in Mt. Pleasant, it is a short drive outside of downtown Charleston. The oldest, working, living plantation which is known for its infamous Avenue of Living Oaks. Founded in 1861 this plantation opened up to the public in 1956 and began giving tours so that the public could see what plantation life was... More

We had high hopes as we drove up the "Ave of Oaks", the setting is truly breathtakingly beautiful and felt like it was steeped in history. Eager to learn about the house, it's history and the surroundings, imagine our disappointment when we only got to tour 3 rooms of the home for a total of 15 minutes at best. But... More

The Boone Hall Plantation is located in a wooded area in the town of Mount Pleasant which is about 8 miles from downtown Charleston. We crossed the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge over the Cooper River which connects Charleston to Mount Pleasant, and it took us less than half an hour to arrive at the plantation. At the entrance we paid... More

Being from Canada, where our own history with slavery (which certainly existed) isn't something that we hear much about in school or in media, I find that learning about America's history with slavery is both very intriguing and uncomfortable. I found that the exhibits at the Boone Hall were very well-done, frank, and also discussed in short a larger history... More

We spent almost 2 hours they're arriving as early as you could which was good on a very very hot and humid day . We took the trolley tour right away first thing with Bob everybody raved about him he was OK kind of rough around the edges. He thought he knew everything about everything for being in the area...

If you truly want to see the whole place, and take the time to experience and absorb the history of Boone Hall, you need to plan for at least a 4 hour visit. Cost is very cheap - $20 per adult, one of the best bargains you will find in Charleston area. Several tour bus companies run trips to the... More

A great visit to an old world plantation with a rich history of the area and still a working farm allowing people to come a buy the produce!
