Middleton Place (Plantation Tours)
This 18th-century plantation is listed as a National Historic Landmark and boasts one of the country’s oldest formal gardens. Most of the original structures were burned during Sherman’s raid, but the 1755 red-brick guest wing still remains, as does a sugarcane mill and working stable.

Over 15 acres of cool fun and island-style water play packed into one location, Whirlin’ Waters is a seasonal family water attraction that provides a great time!
