What a beautiful sight in Charleston. A must see. And it’s free! This tree is not located in the historical area so you would need a car or Uber to get here but well worth it! I have never seen such beauty. The tree is...More

You will be amazed how nature could be form and grow. Please help them to continue growing to another hundreds of years by seeing but not touching it.

Angel Oak is close to my house and I eat there quite often. This evening I took my girlfriend and we both loved it. Of course,I think it is always good. Be sure to get a reservation for evenings.Atmosphere is very relaxed.

If you are in Charleston visiting, have a little extra time, and enjoy nature, I'd recommend going to see the Angel Oak. From downtown it's about a 20 minute drive and pretty easy to find; signs directing you there are pretty good. Tree experts estimate...More

It is amazing to look at this lovely tree. But that's all there is. Gift shop is very limited and the restrooms are porta potties.

It is so worth fighting the traffic to go see this amazing tree. Yes, it is all free. They do have restrooms there and a little gift shop. Take the kids and grandma; it is for all ages.

A tour would be the most reliable, but Uber or Lyft may be an option. Personally, I’d go with tour.

If you get there early you can park very close to the fence and take your photo angled up at the bike and get the tree in the background.

And be warned: the tree has 'hours' that it's open. So if you're planning to drive 2.5 hours, make sure you arrive when the gates are open, so you can walk around the tree. Otherwise you'll be stuck admiring it from afar... More
