We didn't have a lot of time to explore all that the island offers, but this was a great little stop. I don't know many historic sites like this that you not only get to visit for free but also get to visit self-guided. There is a visitor's center where you can get an audio tour, but you can also just walk around and explore for yourself. You will see several slave cabins in various states of ruin and reconstruction, the old kitchen, old barn, indigo processing, and the grounds. They will also like looking at the gopher tortoise holes. You can only see the house from the outside except when open on special occasions, but that's okay. You can take in a lot of history from the signage and displays. The site is family friendly, and I think children would be interested in learning about plantation life. There are some nice hiking trails on the island, but we didn't have time. We had planned to go back another day and check out the Ribault Club and trails, but the weather didn't cooperate. I would definitely visit again. You can do the plantation in less than one hour, but take a few hours or more for the whole island.
