After a lot of deliberation we chose Boone Hall as the one plantation to see in the Charleston area. This was a mistake, Everything about the place seemed mediocre and unexceptional. This wouldn't generally be a problem if things seemed well maintained, but everything seemed outdated and maintained to the minimum, including the gardens, For $20 per head, I would at least expect things to be meticulously maintained, but the grounds and gardens were just adequate, The fields had rotting produce and were more depressing than anything. They were spraying the fields with chemicals as we were passing by on the bus "tour" of the grounds. The bathrooms were outdated and the woman's stalls were missing a door. Everything about the place lacked quality. I don't know - it wasn't quite a ripoff but it was a far cry from Mount Vernon, that's for sure.
