This one is famous for the long Oak Tree Entrance, leading up to the Plantation House. It appeared in Gone with the Wind and The Note Book . The Tour takes you only through two Rooms, because the Family still occupies the rest of the Home .The Brick Slave Cabins are well preserved. They still grow Cotton on that Plantation.

Boone Hall is a great place to spend the day. The landscape is beautiful along with the historical buildings. There are many concerts to enjoy and in the Spring - Fall picking fruits and vegetables to cook and share is local, healthy and priceless.

Some facts right up front. $19.50 per person admission adults; Senior Citizens 65+/Military/AAA Members - $17.00; Children (6-12) $9.50; Children 5/under Free.
Pay the attendant from your car as you drive in. If you arrive later in the afternoon, go to the visitors house on the grounds and you will receive a complimentary "return" on your admission so you can come back the next day or a certain amount of time from that day, to complete the tour. We did that, and returned three days later. The butterfly pavillion is closed in winter. There is a small snack/cafe on the grounds for coffee, ice cream and other treats. We went to Exploring the Gullah Culture - which was really cool. A story-teller dressed in costume spoke the Gullah language and explained it, and gave the history. Very well done. From there we toured the home (the upstairs is not open to tours - the entryway, living room, dining room, sun porch and gentleman's cigar/cocktail area are open). Take the tram for a tour of the grounds. Prepare to tip the driver - he actually asks for tips. The evening we were there, a wedding was being prepared, and the long avenue of oaks was lined with gas burning lanterns - it was brilliant. The boat house is empty unless there is an event. This is where Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were married in November of 2012. The gardens are beautiful. The river is beautiful. Bring a nice camera! The plantation is not wheelchair friendly - it is a historical plantation. If you have a motorized wheelchair, you can probably wing it - but don't expect a tour of the main house. We also waited for the docent who gave a short talk about the history of the slaves. When you go - do it all. Not much cotton fields left. Don't pick any - it is a federal offense to take cotton over state lines.

A nice experience. Fantastic grounds. Has the "Oak Arch Main Drive" that's fantastic. The house tour was very interesting. We went on January 2nd so the gardens were a bit messy and not very colorful due to the winter, but they had a few blooming bushes and flowers, but still a nice experience. The holiday decorations were still up and were very nice. We'll visit again during the late spring.
