#Charleston continued 

There are many other things to see in Charleston just a short drive away. One very old treasure is the Angel Oak (Quercus Virginiana) It is estimated to be between 300 and 400 years old. Named after it’s previous owners Justis and Martha Angel it is 65′ in height and 25.5′ in diameter the longest limb is 89′ long and 11.25′ in diameter.  

There are many Plantations that you can tour as well, we chose the Tea Plantation. For many generations the Bigelow Family has run the plantation. 

Only the fresh new growth that springs from the tips of these hedge type plants is harvested and then dried to make the various types of tea. 


If you like alcohol, Firefly Distillery is just a few mile down the road . Don’t expect a free sample or any type of tour you can taste for a small fee. 

If you need a nice place to stay while in town the choices are only limited by your budget.
