Southern Charm Tour (Charleston, Savannah, Jekyll Island)
There’s something remarkable about the cobblestone streets, historic architecture and down-home hospitality of the coastal “low country” of South Carolina and Georgia. It’s as comforting and nourishing as a home-cooked meal.
Charleston, South Carolina, is a city that exudes elegance and grace even after having survived the Civil War, hurricanes, major fires and more. Whether you’re at Fort Sumter—where the first shots of the Civil War were fired—or the city’s stately mansions and plantations, you’ll experience Southern living at its best.
Then immerse yourself in the allure and history of Savannah, known worldwide for moss-draped oaks and riverfront promenades. Savannah’s coastal landscape will capture your heart. Finally, journey southward to the Gold Coast of Georgia. St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island beckon travelers to one of the country’s most historic vacation spots, where the Rockefellers and Vanderbilts once enjoyed the fresh air and ocean views.
Surrounded by history at every turn, you’ll have plenty of time to soak in the laid-back beauty of this idyllic region.
