Avenue of Oaks

Charleston, South Carolina

Downtown Charleston's antebellum Boone Hall Plantation is billed as the most photographed plantation home in America. Listed on the National Register of Historical Places, it is one of the oldest working and living plantations in the United States. While tomatoes and strawberries may have replaced cotton and pecans as its cash crops, its charm has remained intact. Locals come to buy their Christmas trees, and tourists arrive in droves to see the magical Avenue of Oaks. Planted by Thomas Boone in 1743, the trees create a path that stretches nearly 3/4 of a mile.
