Charleston & Savannah

Friday, May 25 - Friday, June 1, 2018

 

On this getaway, we’ll explore the southern charms of Charleston and Savannah, and visit the Golden Isles of Saint Simon and Jekyll Islands.  We’ll spend our first night in Fredericksburg, Virginia, and then continue south to our hotel in the in the heart of Savannah, the Staybridge Suites, easy walking distance to the City Market and the riverfront shops and Factors Walk.  We’ll explore both the historic district and the lowcountry on our three-hour guided tour, seeing Savanah’s many squares, Factors Walk, City Hall, the Cotton Exchange, the US Customs House, the Forest Gump Bench, and much more.  We’ll stop at City Market for lunch & shopping, and enjoy a free afternoon to explore downtown independently, shop the waterfront area, take a Savannah River Cruise or relax at the hotel.  We will visit two of the Golden Isles of Georgia - Saint Simons and Jekyll Islands.  We’ll take a two-hour guided tour of the Saint Simons Island, visit Christ Church, see the Saint Simon’s Lighthouse, and enjoy lunch and free time in the Village. Then, we’ll visit nearby Jekyll Island, once an exclusive playground for America's industrial barons, built as an exclusive winter retreat known as the Jekyll Island Club, which soon became recognized as “the richest, most inaccessible club in the world.” We’ll learn about the Island’s history at the Jekyll Island Museum, and then get a glimpse into Jekyll Island’s "millionaire" legacy on our 1 ½ hour tram tour of Jekyll Island.  We’ll step back in time at this National Historic Landmark as each building’s story unfolds, and tour two of the “cottages.”  Then, explore the beautiful Magnolia Plantation & Gardens that have survived the centuries and witnessed the history of our nation unfold before it from the American Revolution through the Civil War and beyond.  We’ll tour the Plantation House; visit the gardens, and experience Plantation life and then see lots of

wildlife on a tram tour of the plantation’s wetlands, lakes, forests, and marshes.  We’ll enjoy an included box lunch at the Plantation before we head to picturesque Wadmalaw Island to visit the Charleston Tea Plantation.  We’ll take a tour of the tea factory, and a Trolley Tour of the scenic grounds, learn about how tea is produced, and enjoy tea samples. In Charleston, we’ll spend two nights at the King Charles Inn.  Experience what life was like for the wealthy residents of Charleston when we visit the Aiken-Rhett House Museum, the city’s most intact antebellum urban complex. You’ll see the historic interiors of the main house, slave’s house, stable, carriage house, kitchen & laundry building, all surviving virtually unaltered since 1858.  We’ll also tour the Nathaniel Russell House Museum; a Grand Federal townhouse has a restored interior w/ elaborate ornamentation and a magnificent flying staircase. Set amid spacious gardens and furnished with period antiques, the house evokes the gracious lifestyle of the city's elite.  Enjoy time for lunch and shopping at the Old Marketplace, and a one-hour horse and carriage tour of Charleston to see the highlights of Charleston’s past and learn about the history of the city.  We’ll overnight for one night in Fredericksburg, VA before returning to the Cape.
