I'm sure that the grey skies didn't help, but I was so disappointed in this plantation! We only had a day in Charleston and I had looked to see what was recommended as the best for a short stay. I felt that the guided tour was someone arid, stuck to the script with little in the way of supplementary knowledge. I was surprised that so little reference was made to the impact of slavery on the plantation, and although the gardens were pretty, they were not outstanding. I did enjoy looking at the peacocks, and the lakes are prettily landscaped, but it did not have the wow factor that I anticipated. I also believe that it was extremely expensive for what it was. I feel that our limited time would have been better spent in Charleston itself walking around the historic district.
