We pushed our trip from September to November because of the hurricane so here we were in Charleston. We visited the Middleton Place plantation and I have to say the grounds were beautiful, even in late fall. If you're looking for a giant plantation home...More

Excellent history of early 18th century America. Excellent restaurant that's good for lunch or a drink before the house tour.

Not worth visiting in the winter, the grounds would be beautiful in the summer when everything is in full bloom. We paid $25 US each to see the grounds and then an additional $15 US each to visit the house. There is really no history...More

The home was built after the war, which was disappointing. The tour was good and the grounds are pretty. But there was little feeling of an old plantation.More

This plantation was huge, and the most beautiful one I've ever toured! Some like wild and natural plantations like Magnolia, but I prefer the neat, orderly, and wonderfully trimmed and manicured gardens of the Middleton Place Plantation! In addition to such beautiful gardens and ancient...More

Grounds are extraordinary! Well with a visit. House tour was very interesting if not very strict. Restaurant for a glass of wine at the bar was marginal in terms of service. We did ask if we could take outside and they said yes. Had a...More
