Our family spent a full afternoon exploring Boone Hall Plantation recently. As we entered the drive with the trees lining both sides, we new we found an amazing plantation to explore. We first took in the house tour, and had a delightful tour guide explain many details of the rooms and the furniture placed within. Hearing how this venue had... More

It was a well-spent half-day at this plantation. We enjoyed the guided tour of the house followed by a self-guided tour of the slave cabins and a final show by a Gullah artist which was great. We learned a lot about history of plantation life and Gullah culture. I think it was a great learning experience for the kids (and... More

This enchanting plantation takes you back in time with your drive down the lane surrounded by the beautiful oak trees. Take the time to tune in to the assigned radio station for informative info. Even though it was the dead of August, the gardens were wonderful and worthy of a stroll. The house tour was worth it and the guide... More

So, the place is famous for the oak tree lined entrance. And, yes, the house tour is limited to the first floor (entrance hall, plus 4 rooms). But the 30 min house tour was fun with our great tour guide. The hidden treasure was the coach tour - 35+min on an open air bus. This tour took us around the... More

Once we found out the Boone Plantation was used for the site of several movies (North and South mini series, The Notebook, Queenie) we had to go there. Hoping it wasn't going to be a disappointment (like Magnolia Plantation) we were thrilled to find that one fee covered the tour of the house plus a tram ride around the grounds.... More

So we just left the Boone plantation in Charleston. We were extremely disappointed. The only thing worth seeing was the drive way lined with oak trees. We toured the house but were only allowed on the first floor which consisted of 3 rooms. The upstairs was off limits. They had a buggy ride around the plantation but after sitting in... More

Boone Hall luckily was spared by Union Troops so much of what remains provides a truer picture of colonial and pre-civil war history and the way of life. Highly recommended.

I was initially put off by the $20 admission fee, but it was well worth the money. We toured the plantation house, took a tour of the entire plantation, went to the slave quarters, and saw the Gulla history presentation. That was excellent and brought tears to our eyes! Also discovered the butterfly garden behind the little snack bar and... More

Boone Hall is a great place to visit if you are in the Charleston area. The 1/2 mile ride to the house is just gorgeous! Perfectly spaced, beautiful live oak trees line the road. It costs about $20 per person, but everything is included in that price - house tour, coach tour, Exploring the Gulllah experience performance, Slave Street presentation,... More
