We had 1 day and 3 plantations to visit. So we decided to optimize our time and visit Drayton Hall and Middleton Plantation after hearing that Magnolia Plantation was very "Disney-fied" kid-centric, expensive ($70 for full day of activities) and would take an entire day.
We were not disappointed in our choices. While the only thing that remains of the house itself is the shell, the history, the architecture and the grounds themselves are well worth a 2-3 hour visit. The docents are very educated and eager to share their knowledge about the place. Definitely take a water-mister, fan, hat and sunblock when visiting.
