Magnolia Plantation is an amazing place if you have the time and money. The basic admission only gets you access to the grounds and lame petting zoo. It's ok, but not too exciting. We also went for a boat ride around the swamp, which was great as we got up close to a large number of alligators and for a walk around the swamp where there were no end of wildlife spotting opportunities. The nesting cormorants and egrets were worth the price of admission. The trees were full of them and sitting above a misty swamp made me think I had inadvertently stepped into a 1970s horror movie. But the cost for this was over $30 a person, and we didn't have time to do the trolley tour or house which would have put it up to $50 a head. It's steep, but you could easily spend most of the day there and see stuff you won't anywhere else.
