Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

I went to the first roast they had many years ago. It was crowded and poorly organized then, and appears to be the same in subsequent years. The prices are outrageous, and the traffic is horrible! Go out to Bowen's Island or a local place and eat your oysters and drink your beer. You'll enjoy it more and save a lot of time and money.

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

I never post feedback typically, but I am making an exception. My children and grandchildren were in town and I planned for us to attend the Low Country Christmas at Boone Hall. We had high expectations as being represented by Boone Hall and due to the cost of the event. We were extremely disappointed. The idea is phenomenal but very underdone. I realize this is their first year and perhaps some feedback will help them. Too few food venders, too few activities included with price. The long lines with a let down of product offered. Santa's workshop was rushed through and needs more live interaction, live props, not just painted walls. The Christmas Village could have used some pizazz, like a snow flake machine, more shops or interactive activities for kids. The hayride was fun, but truthfully, needed much more lights, could really have been all lights and just fun Christmas music playing and a guide to encourage interaction, we sang one song at the very end of the ride. One of my biggest gripes was no facilities for babies, I had to change my one of my grandchildren on the floor of a building on her coat. Needless to say I will not be recommending this event. I'm sorry to be so negative but I had such high hopes as it was the main activity I had planned during their stay. The lights at James Island is far more economical and well worth the trip.

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

The reputation of the Oyster Festival has been getting poorer and poorer over the past few years. Why go all the way over there, sit for hours in traffic (in and out), pay an incredible price for just a few oysters, and wait in long, long lines for the honor of being fucked? Save the trip, go locally, and have hot oysters and good beer that dows not require a mortgage on your home?

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

We arrived early and enjoyed watching the various events and then the parade. We left after that and it seems like it was a good thing to leave then from the reviews I have read. When we left there was about 1,000 cars parked and more were coming in. Glad we got there early and left early.

Re: “James Island County Park

In the past, the park has always put on some wonderful family-friendly events. However, the last one (Reggae night) on 6/22/2013 ended with an unreasonable show of force by the police department that created an unnecessary amount of distress and bad-will. If this continues, I cannot call this a family-friendly event anymore. I requested an explanation from both departments. You can see it here as well as a video.…

Re: “Boone Hall Plantation

Is there anything like a haunted house experience for 10-year olds and 6-year olds besides the Haunted Hay Ride we do every year? Just curious. I heard of the Amy's thing but it looks like it's for 12 and over. thanks!

Re: “Middleton Place

This will be my second time visiting Middleton Gardens and I can't wait. I intend to use Omega Transportation as my ride ( since I can save 10% on a round trip) and I will tour the gardens after the demonstrations. I know the gardens will be beautiful this time of year. And I won't have to fight the traffic, so I am really excited.

Sooooo much fun

Re: “Coastal Carolina Fair

I didn't go to the fair this year or any other year. I can't believe that the Coastal County Fair would allow an animal act such as with the Bear to be included. I DETEST that type of attraction and would not give them my business.

Re: “Coastal Carolina Fair

It's the Fair, what to you expect? Charleston debutants in their best? People watching is one of the best parts of going to the Fair. We went to the fair last night and had a blast. Got there at 5 after a 20 minute ride from downtown. Did some kids rides with our 1 year old son, had obligatory fair food (gyro, chicken on a stick, and a fried candy bar), did a few adult rides, left and back downtown by 8.

Re: “Coastal Carolina Fair

Agreed. It's 2011, and the fair still lets morons walk around blowing cigarette smoke at people.
Wise up, exchange club, make designated smoking areas and the rest smoke free.
Especially the amphitheater, where people are packed in to see the bands.
Designated smoking areas will only slightly inconvenience a few and greatly improve the fair experience for many.

Re: “Hampton Park

Hampton Park is a great place for the Plant Swap. Plan to spend some time smelling the roses.
