A Plantation Visit
If you love history and architecture, you'll love this early 18th century Palladian plantation house. Managed by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Drayton Hall is a National Historic Landmark that offers a glimpse back in time. The house is unfurnished, but the guided tour is top-notch and inspiring. A gift shop is on-site.
Middleton Place is a National Historic Landmark and offers stunning gardens, a museum house, and stableyards (with animals and a weaver, cooper, carpenter, potter and blacksmith at work demonstrating the skills practiced by enslaved people). There is an excellent restaurant on-site and a gift shop.
