Middleton Place is always my first recommendation. If you can, do it and Drayton Hall. MP will take about 1/2 day and do plan to go early in the day.

Is there a bus out there from downtown, do we need a tour, or should we just rent a car for the day? Thanks so much for the advice.

Just rent a car for the day is the easiest way.

The plantations closest to Charleston are Magnolia, Drayton Hall, Middleton Place, and Boone Hall. All have their qualities. You should look at the websites and decide what you want - authentic house, wildlife, landscapes?

What you shouldnt miss the day you have the car is a ride out to Sullivans Island and a visit to Fort Moutrie. See their website.
