Day 3 After breakfast, we continue our sightseeing adventure in Charleston where we take a walking tour through the city’s cobblestone streets. You will have a first-hand experience of Charleston life, past to present day, as you walk through the city. Charleston is the birthplace of the Civil War and a vibrant city of the New South. We then take a tour of Drayton Hall, founded in 1738, known as the nation’s earliest example of fully executed Palladian architecture and the oldest preserved plantation house in America. Next, we visit Charleston City Market, one of the nation’s oldest public markets and the cultural heart of
Charleston, where there are more than 300 entrepreneurs and vendors to experience. We will also visit Boone Hall Plantation, which is a “living history” and an active agricultural facility,  known to be the most
photographed plantation in America. It is here that you will come to know how Major John Boone made his fortune from cotton, brick making, and rice in the 1680’s. B

Day 4 Today, we visit Beaufort and take a guided carriage ride though the historic downtown streets.  See the restored historic mansions built by the wealthy families before the Civil War as they are a cultural 
 treasure of this antebellum town. We continue on to Savannah, often called the “Belle of the South”, and check into our hotel. We will stay 3 nights in Savannah. B. D

Day 5 Downtown Savannah’s National Landmark Historic District is the highlight of our city tour. This tour includes a local guide who will show us around and tell us the history of this lovely city. Then we board the Savannah Riverboat Cruise. The cruise captain provides a narration, along the scenic 
Savannah River, gives us a unique perspective of this historic city.  You will have free time to enjoy
Savannah.  Everyone will have the opportunity to explore shops, art galleries, and cafés scattered throughout this walkable city.   This will be the perfect time to find souvenirs. B

Day 6 Today we visit Jekyll Island which is our next adventure. Before World War II, famous and rich Americans came to Jekyll Island as a retreat. Some of the recognizable family names include the
Rockefellers, Morgan’s, Macys, Pulitzers, Goodyear’s and Vanderbilt’s. The state of Georgia purchased the island, which is 10 miles of Atlantic beaches, waterways, and marshes.  The interior land of forests is full of pines, magnolias, and live oak trees. Wildlife of egrets, pelicans, herons and sandpipers skim the gentle surf. Then we visit the Georgia Sea Turtle Center where experts rescue several hundred sea turtles a year to be rehabilitated and released back to their ocean habitat. We return to Savannah to enjoy our
farewell dinner. B, D

Day 7 This morning to travel to Atlanta to visit the Georgia Aquarium. This is the nation’s largest
Aquarium, with both fresh and saltwater habitats. The aquatic life is mesmerizing and magical. Then when go to the airport for your return home.  Relax and remember your experiences with the culture and history of the southern states. B
