Tips

  • Be sure to ck out the 900 yr old oak
  • Take your time and walk everywhere. It's gorgeous. But watch out for the gators and bring bug spray!
  • The half-hour House Museum Tour takes visitors through the 1775-built guest quarters, the only part of the residence to survive (tours start at 12). Show yourself around the extensive formal gardens.
  • Charleston has a rich culinary history and it all began here! Penelope visited on Rice Harvest Day, a celebration that happens each year in September. The gardens here are beau-ti-ful!
  • And watch for BIG BLACK SNAKES. But the place is beautiful.
  • Look out for alligators. Walk down to the terracing.
  • Beautiful grounds and you can definitely self-navigate through the entire property at your own pace.
  • Well worth the trip out! Get there right when they open to have the place to yourself
  • Drive slowly when entering. Sheep roam free.
  • Beautiful gardens
  • Beautiful place but b prepared for a substantial amount of walking
  • Sheep roam free around the grounds, lots of pretty views to see and even spotted a couple of gators.
  • My favorite plantation. I've gone five times and it'll never be boring. Beautiful when flowers are in bloom. I had a great guide for the garden tour. Lots of history and original pieces in the house.
  • Gorgeous place. We came in early March, so it was temperate too.
  • The grounds are lovely!
  • Day tours of this National Historic Landmark have long been popular, but few travelers know about the grounds kayak swamp tours.
  • Watch for snakes!
  • Middleton Place has the most beautiful grounds of any of Charleston's plantations, with stunning gardens on the marsh.
  • On hot summer days carriage tours often stop early in the day.
  • Walk around all of the gardens!!
