Im a northerner so Im not used to that slow swagger country life with mad greenery and animals. My life has been about running around like a maniac with the animals of the concrete jungles. lol. So while I was in SC I decided to immerse myself in the one thing I felt personified Southern life the most, a plantation. What an amazing experience that was. I chose to go to Magnolia Plantation, which was a large producer of rice back in the hayday, but is now a botanical wonder. I learned so much about how that lifestyle was lived, from the plantation owner persepective to the slave perspective.
There are different activities to do on the plantation, including a train ride, a boat ride, a house tour, a lecture on the slaves, and a self guided tour around the property.
