While visiting the Charleston area we wanted to experience visiting a plantation and choose Boone Hall in Mount Pleasant. Entering through the avenue of the oaks is almost worth the price of admission alone. One thing that I really liked about Boone Hall is that all the activities are included in the admission cost and there is a lot to see and do. We went on a Sunday and were able to fit everything in to 3 hours. I would recommend setting aside 4-5 hours if you want to see everything and not feel rushed.

The slave cabins and are authentic and the presentation of their history was very insightful. The presentation on Gullah culture is extremely good and should not be missed. A tractor ride takes you around the site and explains how the plantation is used today. The house tour only covers a few rooms but is still informative and entertaining.

We had a great time at Boone Hall Plantation and would recommend it to anyone visiting the Charleston area.

This is an amazing venue! An old plantation loaded with educational exhibits, but an actual functioning plantation that grows and sell food. This was the plantation of Orry Main's family in The North and The South series. The price is reasonable and even more so if you get it on a combo deal that they in Charleston.

Took a short drive outside Charleston to Boone Hall plantation. This site was used in the films North and South and the sequel to Roots Plus others. Beautiful drive towards the mansion through s grove of live oaks-planted in 1700’s. Majestic trees for certain. The tour guide was in period clothing and maintained her role well. There were 9 slave cabins on the premise to tour and each had a different theme. Worship, life, slave trade in So Carolina, crops, etc. The slave trade included a log of all the ships sailing from the Gold Coast of Africa to So Carolina, the inventory of slaves on Boone Hall plantation, jobs performed. It made it real for me. There were videos in some of the cabins as well. There are presentations of slave life at scheduled times and we were able to hear from a GullahGeechi woman in the theater at the end of the slave cabins. You can also tour the grounds on a tractor pulled wagon at no extra cost. A small gift shop, cafe, and butterfly pavilion also available. Definitely learned something new on this tour.

I enjoyed walking through history. The house is beautiful. It's always a bit sureal to feel the echoes of days gone by. It's a past we should not ever forget.

Driving through up the Avenue of the Oaks is worth the price. It doesn't get any more beautiful or southern. Lots of history (good and bad), beautiful grounds and interesting tours. We did the full experience: House tour, Gullah Geechie talk, ride around the acreage. It was a day well spent.
