Magnolia Plantation and Gardens Overview
Magnolia Plantation has beautiful gardens you can explore with Fido, but the real treat here is that dogs are also allowed on the tram tours, and even inside the plantation house (if you carry the dog). In addition to the garden with more than 900 types of camellias, there are many nature trails on the property, including one through a 60-acre blackwater cypress and tupelo swamp. You could easily spend a day here without even going inside the house.

Beautiful dog friendly plantation!
Jen in Macon, GA
We took our daughter and two dogs here for our first morning in Charleston. The grounds are very expansive and we were able to walk around with our dogs for 2 hours (could have gone for longer but they were pooped!) We took them up to an observation deck overlooking the marshes and around their bridges and gardens. It does cost $15 a person but it was a lovely outing and good example of a southern plantation. My dogs are too big to carry but I hear they're allowed in the plantation house if you carry them! Relaxed on the porch swing after with them panting at our feet. Awesome :)

This a beautiful place and so dog friendly. We spent the day there with our two schnauzers. So many things to do and see and our dogs love it. They had a wonderful adventure

This place is beautiful. They have a long winding path amongst all the blossoming trees. Benches are tucked into shaded areas. It was a nice way to walk the dogs before a long car ride home and people along the trail were very friendly towards my dogs.

IT WAS GREAT THAT THE PLANTATION ALLOWED DOGS ON THE GROUNDS. WATER PROVIDED ALONG THE PATH. IF YOU CAN PICK UP YOUR DOG, THEN HE OR SHE CAN ALSO GO INTO THE HOUSE. BEAUTIFUL GARDENS.

Some of the house tour got a little boring, but the grounds were beautiful and the boat tour was relaxing and informative. Our tour guide Sy was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun for everyone, including the dog. It was a good time.
