I have been to a few, though not all, of the plantations outside Charleston and this one is definitely my favorite. While the main building no longer stands, the gardens make this spot spectacular. The view of the river from across the terraced gardens and butterfly lakes is breathtaking. The free-ranging sheep in front and the alligators basking on the lakeshores in the back add to the thrill of Middleton. The plantation also has a restaurant where you can enjoy excellent Lowcountry favorites and gorgeous views of the grounds. The best time to go is in May when the azalea's are in bloom.
