Since moving to South Carolina in 1999, I've had the opportunity to see a lot of stunningly beautiful places, but I really fell in love with the gardens at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston. Magnolia Plantation was founded in 1676 by the Drayton family, but based on the fact that I can't find any photos of the home, I'm guessing that I found the gardens much more impressive than the home.

The gardens at Magnolia Plantation have been open to the public since the early 1870's. Many parts of the gardens are even older, some sections more than 325 years old, making them the oldest unrestored gardens in America.
