Explore Charleston & Boone Hall Plantation 

Take a trip through the history of America’s oldest working, living plantation. Boone Hall dates back to 1681 and opened in 1956 to the public after the McRae family purchased it. It is the most popular plantation in Charleston and has been used for filming of The Notebook, North and South, and Days of Our Lives.

Important Notice: If you are booking our 1:00 p.m. Boone Hall and city tour combination, you must call our office directly and make a reservation for your city tour, as you are unable to take the city tour at the end of the day due to city tourism regulations.
