Charleston’s Boone Hall and Tea Plantation

Charleston's Boone Hall and Tea Plantation

$129per person

Today we visit two beloved plantations in the Charleston area. Our first stop is Boone Hall, America’s oldest working plantation, dating back to 1681. Famed for massive moss-draped live oak trees forming a natural corridor at the entrance, the plantation has been the backdrop for many TV shows and films. Tour the house with a guide in historical dress, then walk through the beautiful gardens to admire antique roses over 100 years old. We’ll enjoy an included lunch before swinging by the Angel Oak Tree on Johns Island, estimated to be over 500 years old. Finally, we visit America’s only working tea plantation. See hundreds of thousands of tea plants on the 127 acres farm on Wadmalaw Island and learn how this Southern (iced) and British (hot) beverage is produced! Tour the plantation and the greenhouse to experience what it takes to bring new tea bushes into the world.
