Boone Hall Plantation via Bike Tour in South Carolina

Boone Hall Plantation via bike tour in South Carolina

A very special stop for us when escorting our guests on the new South Carolina Bike and Boat Tour is Boone Hall Plantation. Boone Hall Plantation was founded in 1681 when Englishman Major John Boone came to Charleston and established a lucrative plantation and gracious home on the banks of Wampacheone Creek.

Boone Hall is also one of America’s oldest working farms and has been continuously growing and producing crops for over three centuries.

They were once known for cotton and pecans, and are still actively producing strawberries, tomatoes, peaches, and a variety of other produce throughout the spring, summer, and fall. (U-Pick fields for certain crops are open in season.)

When on tour with Great Bike Tours you will be treated to a special guided tour of “America’s most photographed plantation” and the #1 plantation in the Charleston area. On location you will be able to view the original slave cabins, visit the antebellum-style mansion, and tour the 738-acre property.

In 1743, the son of Major John Boone planted live oak trees, arranging them in two evenly spaced rows. This spectacular approach to his home symbolizes southern heritage and will take root in your memory for many years to come. Click here for video
