Our family discussed as we left Drayton Hall that not every one will love this plantation as much as we did. If you are going to see fancy furniture and be blown away by landscaped gardens, go elsewhere. If you are interested in seeing the real architecture on a tour led by knowledgeable scholars, go to Drayton. You won't be in air conditioning, but you will be amazed by the structure which dates to before the Revolutionary War. The staff was super-friendly and super-knowledgeable. My only disappointment was that the slave quarters presentation was billed as being offered three times per day, and in reality was only two. Also, the swamp tour wasn't available. The website should be updated to reflect that. Otherwise, we were so glad to have chosen this unique location as part of our family's time in Charleston.
