Step back in time as we tour the beautiful grounds of Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark, home to the oldest landscaped gardens in America. Henry Middleton, a South Carolina delegate to the First and Second Continental Congress, began to create the gardens in 1741 in the classical style of those at the Palace of Versailles, and his descendants added camellias, tea olives, crepe myrtles and azaleas over the centuries. Our visit will include a carriage ride, weather permitting, and guided house and garden tours. Lunch on your own at the Middleton Place Restaurant or the Garden Market, located at the property. Departure time is 8 a.m.
Activity level 4.
