Boone Hall has an amazing Slave Street exhibit that gives a unique view into the lives of slaves on a plantation, that I recommend seeing. The house, decorated for Christmas was absolutely beautiful, and some of the artifacts were stunning. The avenue of oaks is beautiful, I could have stayed in that one spot all day! But it was also...

Clearly thousands of the locals were waiting for this event where wine sellers offer tastings, as with many of the local restaurants. On this day, 7th December, the band Spyro Gyra was playing and supported by several other worthy musicians, held in the meadow adjacent this historic plantation home about ten miles out of Charleston. The avenue of 200 year... More

It had long been on my bucket list to visit a southern plantation. The avenue of oaks was worth the drive and the slave quarters educational. I was disappointed in the amount of rooms on the floor - only the downstairs. However the grounds were gorgeous, we had lunch in the cafe, great ice cream, the admission price of $20... More

There are many different parts to this Plantation. The main house is okay, but since this is still a place where the owners live at times, you only get to see the first floor rooms. Decorated for Christmas last week with 9 beautiful trees, this was great. But if not seasonally decorated, may not be worth your time. The slave... More

Coming from the west and never seeing a plantation before and you pull up and see the avenue of oaks it was breathtaking. It was cool to see a working plantation still running. I can't begin to explain how nice the staff was. My 14 month old lost his shoe on the ride around the plantation. We told the staff... More

Love Boone Hall and have enjoyed many trips and other events at this location. I was anxiously anticipating this event as I love wine and food and Spirogyra. The band was good. After about 2 hrs I had a total of 1.5 glasses of wine in about 8 tiny tastes. Standing in line for 15 minutes only to find out... More

Superb. A must place to see. Served also as set for ‚North and South‘. Driving the oak alley alone would be worth a visit. We did the house tour and the plantation coach tour. Boone Hall is a working plantation. Vegetables and fruits are grown here. Highly recommended.

I knew there was an avenue of oaks leading to the main plantation, but wow, it goes on and on! Very cool. The presentations set up in each of the slave cabins are really well done. The tour of the house was short (only three rooms downstairs, since the upstairs is still a private residence) and crowded (they really should... More

The plantation was beautiful but for the cost of admission, you could only tour 4 rooms of the house as the owners lived on the top floors. The cotton gin was undergoing restoration, which it was 4 years ago when I was there. The gift shop was closed still after 4 years also.
