Boone Hall Plantation was our first stop between the airport and Charleston and it far exceeded our expectations. We chose Boone Hall Plantation over the other ones in the area because of its emphasis on slave life. The original brick slave quarters (which were built from bricks actually made by slaves on the plantation) had interactive displays which were moving... More

There is a decent variety of things to do here for the admission fee. We started out exploring the slave cabins. Those were remarkable. The self guided tour of the history of slavery in Charleston was very interesting and informative. At the end of the cabins was the Gullah Theater. We were lucky enough to see a fabulous presentation. It... More

Even though it was scorching hot there was a nice breeze blowing to make the strolls through the gardens and walking the property bearable so don't skip going just because it's hot and you can always grab a cold water or juice from the ButterflyCafe. The house tour was neat and educational however you only see a few of the... More

This was our second trip to Boone with family. We arrived at Boone around 3:15 p.m. The Oak-lined drive is spectacular. However, after finding out our house tour time, we found out that the last Gullah presentation was at 3:30 p.m., which means we missed it AND that the open-air coach tour was cancelled due to rain earlier in the...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour (as we do all of them). The drive up to the big house instantly takes you back in time. To hear of the size of the plantation in it's prime (4800 acres) and how it was only 300 slaves to work it was astonishing to me. It was also interesting to find... More

The best part of this plantation was the carriage ride. The house tour only includes 3 rooms and not very interesting aside from its history. Snack bar needs attention and more choices. The grounds were ok. We were glad to get out of there. In the future we will visit a better Plantation.

As you drive up to the house, the oak lined road is spectacular. I thought I had just stepped back in time. The gardens were beautiful, however I would have liked to know the names of more of the flowers (not all were labeled). The tour of the home was disappointing. We were only permitted to go into a few... More

It was a very nice plantation with gorgeous views and landscaping as well as an exceptionally beautiful house. I went with my boyfriend who especially enjoyed the go at your own pace atmosphere. The butterfly garden felt magical and whimsical I enjoyed it a lot!

This is a place to spend at least 1/2 of a day. The house was nice, you don't get to see too much of it, and the tour guide was entertaining. The grounds are nice. What you want to do is go on the carriage ride - the gentleman leading the tours is great and tells you lots. The greatest... More

We visited and were lucky to catch an overcast day and the temperature was a little cooler than usual for the Summer. I was glad of this as most of the interesting areas are outside and we got there in the middle of the day. The oak lined road upon entering is beautiful and the staff at the gate were... More
