America's last Romantic Garden. Unlike most of America's gardens, which are formal and seek to control nature, Magnolia's Romantic-style Gardens cooperate with nature to create a tranquil landscape like Eden where humanity and nature are in harmony.

Founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, Magnolia Plantation has survived the centuries and witnessed the history of our nation unfold before it from the American Revolution through the Civil War and beyond. It is the oldest public tourist site in the Lowcountry, and the oldest public gardens in America, opening its doors to visitors in 1870 to view the thousands of beautiful flowers and plants in its famous gardens. So join us here at Magnolia Plantation to experience the beauty of its gardens and its rich history today.

The gardens are beautiful! In the spring the azaleas are in bloom and there's a nice long path to walk through. The house tour is full of interesting history, and if you have young children there's a petting zoo.

Pros: Beautiful gardens and plenty of things to do, and even dog friendly!

Cons: High price and ticket lines are long.
