If you are in the Charleston area, it is well worth your time to go out to Johns Island to see the Angel Oak. The centuries old live oak tree is a beautiful specimen and is very impressive for size and form. The little gift shop has some nice merchandise including some Charleston Tea Plantation tea that is a better... More

If you are in the area, you must see this gorgeous tree. Great photo op! I was only a bit disappointed that there was not a lot of information on the history of the tree itself or explanations of some of its odd features. Maybe Google

This was by far the most beautiful drive than led to an area that is steeped in history. The Angel tree itself is massive majestic sight to behold. The power and awe that we felt standing next to something that has witnessed so much history brought peace to our hearts. It's a busy place. Earlier in the opening hours may... More

The Angel Oak is a creation of beauty. Our group was amazed at the size of the tree and the size and shape of the extending branches.

Okay it's a tree, big deal. But it is a big deal! It's beautiful and massive and worth it. You just have to wonder if trees could talk what stories this tree could tell. I hope this tree is around for a very very long time for nature lovers young and old to photograph and enjoy.

This tree is unbelievable. You honestly have to see it to believe it. The branches reach out and out and out. Breath-taking!

Incredible to see even on a gloomy, rainy day! The tree is covered in resurrection fern, and is definitely more impressive in person. The gift shop houses prints, stationary, and Charleston Own goodies. Hard to get a good picture without getting lots of people in it, so we appreciated it without phones :) The gate and hours of operation are... More
