Mount Pleasant Magazine Sept/Oct 2022

57 www. ReadMPM. com | www.MountPl easantMagaz i ne. com | www.MountPl easantPodcas t . com Learn Southern history at Boone Hall Plantation Boone Hall Plantation is a must-visit for special seasonal events like the Strawberry Festival, Wine Under the Oaks and the Pumpkin Patch, but in my humble opinion, it’s also a must-visit on your own time to learn more about Southern history. With the price of a general ticket, you can take the self-guided Black History in America Tour, enjoy live presentations about Gullah culture, take a covered tractor tour around the farm or stroll through colorful, lush gardens at your leisure. Soak up nature at Palmetto Islands and Laurel Hill County Parks Kids getting antsy after a morning of history presentations? Let them run (or skate or bike) it all out for a while at one of North Mount Pleasant’s parks. Palmetto Islands County Park has abundant amenities for the entire family, including a waterpark for the little ones, plus kayaking, peddle boats, docks for fishing and crabbing and lots of space for frisbee and tag. If it’s just you and your honey on the excursion, opt for a quiet hike through Laurel Hill County Park, and observe the lakeside wildlife. Go golfing at DunesWest, Snee Farm, Rivertowne and Charleston National We’re fortunate to have a lot of great golfing available here in the Lowcountry, and Mount Pleasant’s best courses are in the north part of town. Snee Farm, Rivertowne, Dunes West and Charleston National are all challenging for seasoned golfers, plus offer breathtaking scenery to convince any newbie of their new favorite sport. feature
