There are three passport options, so you'll be able to select the option that is best for you. With the Explorer passport, you get entrance to 8 sites over 3 days for only $49.99! The next tier up is the Enthusiast passport, which gets you into the same 8 sites plus your choice of either Drayton Hall or Middleton Place gardens and stable yards. If you can't pick between Drayton Hall or Middleton Place, then you can purchase the Connoisseur passport, which gets you into everything listed! Below is a screenshot containing the specific attractions included and other information about the passport variations.

Drayton Hall- the oldest unrestored plantation house in America- was named the best place to visit in South Carolina by Conde Nast. Middleton Place is America's oldest and most important landscaped gardens. The other sites are equally as significant and amazing! Touring them is like taking a step back in time. You'll learn about the area's history, see breathtaking decor and architecture, and have lots of fun!
