In all seriousness though, Boone Hall is a great history lesson which is also easy on the eyes. Four houses have stood where the current house is and you can take a tour of the downstairs as part of your admission price. ( Twenty dollars per adult and $10 per child from age 5 to 12, children under five are free) Also included in the admission price is a live presentation of "Exploring the Gullah Culture" , an open air coach tour of the grounds and a talk about the slave quarters at Boone Hall. The parking is free and there is a small cafe for meals and snacks. Of course, one of the most beautiful and well-known aspects of Boone Hall is the Avenue of the Oaks which you can't miss. I think it's one of the prettiest places in the Southeastern US. And apparently so do many other people as it is billed as the "most visited plantation in the United States."
