Charleston Plantation Tours
Charleston’s wealth was created centuries ago based on the growing of rice and indigo on plantations laid out all over the Low Country.Take a plantation tour to learn about the historic importance of these estates in our nation’s history — and in the United States’ rice industry. Plantation tours allow visitors to step back in time and meet the families who ran these estates.
