Boone Hall Plantation 

Description: Boone Hall Plantation has been open to the public since 1956. The McRae Family purchased the plantation in 1955 and it was Mrs. McRae who furnished the house with antiques and began giving tours. Today, the McRae Family still owns the property, and they continue to make improvements to the plantation so that you, the visitor, can experience what plantation life was like in the 1800s. As you tour each site on the plantation our knowledgeable staff will help you understand the day to day activities of those who lived on plantations as well the history of the people who lived here at Boone Hall.

Re: “Lowcountry Oyster Festival

★★★★★ ★★★★★

This is the worst organized festival in my life will NEVER go again! First the traffic going into Boone Hall was moving at a snail's pace or slower, cops didn't given a damn. People cutting into traffic left and right. After an hour sitting in traffic on Long Point Rd, it took another half an hour to get thru the boone hall entrance. Second you have to park in a grass field fill with horse feces stuck to your shoes and tires. Once inside all the food stands had no organiziation, you couldn't tell where the lines started people were cutting and cursing left and right. The worst is when we got to the oyster line (if you can call it a line) it was like over a thousand people squeeze together no organization at all. It was like everybody was begging for free food! There was no exit you had to fight your way back thru the crowd carrying your bucket of oyster (if your were lucky to get one). We never got our bucket of oyster after waiting over an hour in the mosh pit. We got to the front of serving tables but once we were there the girl up front said " we are all out of oysters on our side you need to move over to your left side to get your oyster. How the hell do you shift over 1000 people to your left when everybody has been moving forward for over an hour. Why couldn't the staff move their lazy butts and bring buckets of oysters over to all the people been waiting over an hour! So we were like efff this, there is no way we are getting oysters. So we left the line after over an hour waiting. We ended up eating nasty burgers and cupcakes because the other vendors ran out of food! We paid $30 to get in got $40 in food tickets! Thats $70 to wait hours in traffic, stepping on horse poop, waiting over in hour in a mosh pit for oysters and never getting any, and eating burgers, cupcakes, and drinking $2 mountain dew from a can that only cost 25 cents! I would have been 1000 times happier if I just went to Captain D's that Sunday.

Is there anything like a haunted house experience for 10-year olds and 6-year olds besides the Haunted Hay Ride we do every year? Just curious. I heard of the Amy's thing but it looks like it's for 12 and over. thanks!

I know all of you are right, but we did the right thing and did not go.....I knew the traffic would suck. Mt. Pleasant is too small over there on Long Point rd. with 1 lane. And, I knew it would be a drunk fest, with overpriced food for the high class and elite...sorry it sucked, but I knew it would.....

Mount Pleasant should have stayed the sleepy little village it started as. The people that moved here are responsible for the things mentioned in the above reviews. Boone Hall probably can not pay their bills because everyone is so stinking cheap around here, they probably go the market, get ideas for recipes, then go to Wal-Mart to shop. How about supporting the local market instead of bashing it, then maybe they will be able to pay their bills.

Re: “Lowcountry Oyster Festival

Just a bit of advice for this clusterf%#k of an event...pack a cooler for the ride in because it will take at least an hour to get to your parking space and twice as long to get out! Wake up early, drink mimosas, get addied up and get there early and leave early for the best results! Have fun and don't get stabbed with an oyster shucker on they out in a fit of dirt road rage (eye witness 3 years ago)! If you haven't been, go because it is a great time otherwise!

Re: “Taste of Charleston

Horrible place. Was so upset I had to sit in traffic at Boone for 1 hour and 38 minutes before we could park. IT was a beer drinking drunk fest with over priced food which was misleading in its portions marked. HATED IT....NEVER AGAIN

Re: “Lowcountry Oyster Festival

Is parking free? Also, the entrance fee is $12. Does that include any food or drinks? Or are they doing a "ticket" system where you pay $2 for a ticket and 2 tickets get you a beer, etc....
