All moss-draped oaks and golden-sand beaches, the coastlines of South Carolina and Georgia sparkle with historic cities, luxurious island retreats and breathtaking scenery. This guided tour starts in Charleston, South Carolina, where pastel-hued Georgian rowhouses share the easily navigable streets with art galleries, upscale restaurants and City Market—the place to seek out Gullah sweetgrass baskets, intricately woven by local artisans. From there, head south to Georgia’s Jekyll Island for a beachside picnic, a riverfront bike ride or a round of golf. Then, savor Savannah. Georgia’s oldest city brims with iconic sights, from the 163-year-old Forsyth Park fountain to the hand-laid cobblestones of historic River Street.
Trip treat: A chef sharing local specialties in a private cooking demonstration for your group in one of Savannah’s River Street restaurants.
