Breakfast will be available in the morning before we travel to the Charleston Tea Plantation. Its the only tea plantation in the United States. Over 100 years ago, tea planters brought their finest tea bushes from China, India, and Ceylon to South Carolina Lowcountry.

Included in the stop is an informative trolley tour of the grounds and tour of the Tea factory. A boxed lunch will be provided at the tea plantation followed by a photo op at Angel Oak.

Built during the colonial period and still a working plantation to date, Boone Hall interprets the history of the families who owned the land as well as the many slaves who lived and worked there. Upon arrival at Boone Hall, you will be captivated by the aptly named “Avenue of Oaks”. These nearly 300 year old trees, which inspired settings in the iconic film “Gone with the Wind”, are sure to be a highlight of the tour. In addition to enjoying the scenery, interpret day to day life on a plantation while visiting Boone Hall’s nine original slave cabins and the Colonial Revival plantation house built on the site of the original plantation house in the 1930’s and lovingly furnished with 19th century period antiques.
