If you like going to a great place with beautiful garden, this is for you!

If there were ever a place to stop and smell the roses, this house would be it.

Built in 1755, this mansion was once the home of Arthur Middleton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Today, Middleton Place houses an impressive collection of historic furniture and portraits (all originally owned by the Middleton family), plus a stable with heritage-bred animals. Visitors can also watch re-enactors demonstrate the skills and technology used on an 18th-century plantation, or take a carriage or an African American focus tour. Just make sure you save time to treat yourself to a bite to eat at the Middleton Place Restaurant, where the menu is inspired by traditional Low Country Gullah cuisine.

According to most, however, the real reason to visit Middleton Place is to see the gardens. Modeled after traditional French gardens, the grounds here are peppered with camellias, azaleas, magnolias, and myrtle throughout the year. They provide the perfect backdrop for a leisurely stroll. Recent visitors agree that this historic home is beautiful, though some cringe at the high cost of admission—$28 for adults.

Middleton Place is located about 16 miles northwest of downtown Charleston along the Ashley River. It is open every day of the week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
