Botany Bay Plantation is a great day trip from Charleston (about an hour southwest on Edisto Island). It's a historic heritage preserve and wildlife management area. The main draw is the beach - a few miles of pristine, undeveloped South Carolina coastline. Unfortunately, the beach was closed due to damage from Hurricane Matthew, but the plantation tour is still worth driving.

This is Day 27 of our 10,000 mile road trip across the US.

Botany Bay Plantation is a combination of two smaller plantations: The Bleak House Plantation and the Sea Cloud Plantation. You drive along a dirt road and stop at 15 points of interest and read about various historic sites (some of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places). Entrance to the Plantation is free, as are the guide and map. It's interesting and takes about an hour.


What's going on here?

We quit our jobs, left New York City, bought a car, and decided to spend the summer driving around the US. The plan is to hit at least 35 states and cover more than 10,000 miles. Watch from the beginning here:
