  • Amazing 400 year old live oak. The base trunk is 17 feet in circumference and the branches spread out a great distance in 3 directions. Not as much on the north side. One picture does not capture the enormity of this beautiful tree. The sign says it expects to be around for 900 years so it is barely middle aged. A nice stop and no cost to drive in and view.
  • Everyone needs to see this in person with their own eyes! The size of the tree is just amazing! There's free parking/admission and a bunch of picnic tables if anyone wants to have lunch there. It's away from the fasted pace city life. Donations are accepted, which we made sure to leave before we left. There's a cute little gift shop that sells baskets, pictures, post cards and magnets. The giant limbs are hollow, so no sitting/standing is allowed on any of them. The caretakers do a good job of managing everything. If you're contemplating going, go! We drove to Charleston just to go to the Angel Oak Tree. No regrets from us!
  • A beautiful place to visit. Best to visit near opening or closing. Can get busy during mid day hours. Love visiting Everytime we are in town. My kids have to strongly resist the desire to climb this big beautiful tree. Heck so do I!
  • Beautiful oak tree that has grown for over 400 years into some amazing patterns and shapes. Well worth stopping by if you're in the area. Depending on the time of year, it can be very crowded. You will not get a photo of the entire tree without quite a few people in it.
  • The tree is amazingly tall and worth the sight. Staff is kind of rude, but they also have a lot of rules to keep the tree standing as it is very old. Definitely worth a quick stop and a good photo opportunity.
