Southern Charm

A few Thursdays ago, I wrote about the best places that I’ve traveled to. However, I was scrolling through some photos on my computer today and I realized I left some out! One particular place that I wanted to share with you guys today is Boone Hall Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina. This place is so gorgeous- it’s crazy. I spent an entire day exploring this plantation and still, I feel like I wanted to see more.

Boone Hall is actually pretty famous. It was Ally’s house in The Notebook and it is where Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married. In fact, when I was there, I saw them setting up for a wedding too. I even saw the bride and groom posing with white horses before the ceremony. It seemed kind of like a fairy tale. I spent some of the day taking a tour of the grounds including the slave quarters and the feilds. If you are in South Carolina, you have to visit Boone Hall Plantation and you won’t regret it!

They bring you around the plantation on a little wooden trolley and they explain the uses and history of each spot.

I hope these pictures inspired you to plan a visit to Boone Hall Plantation. It is especially quant and filled with history!  If anything, maybe this will inspire you watch The Notebook.

Sincerely,

Carlie
