Day 2: Jacksonville - Jekyll Island, Georgia

Travel to the exclusive Jekyll Island Club Hotel, situated in the midst of the fabled Golden Isles. Jekyll Island was once the winter retreat of prominent affluent families and their grand cottages still stand. A tram takes you on a tour of the Jekyll Island Historic Landmark District – one of the nation’s largest restoration projects. The Rockefellers, Vanderbilts and J.P. Morgan once holidayed here along the 240-acre river edge. The remainder of your day is at leisure. (B)

Day 5: Savannah - Charleston, South Carolina

Traverse the picturesque coastline through South Carolina’s Low Country on your way to historic Charleston. Known as the Holy City, Charleston has survived the Civil War, major fires, an earthquake and hurricanes – and still exudes elegance, charm and grace. A local guide will show you the city. See its cobblestone streets, historic homes and restored buildings, some with origins prior to the Revolution. Stop at the battery overlooking Fort Sumter where, on April 12, 1861, the first shots of the Civil War were fired. Continue on to City Market, one of the oldest public markets in America and the epicenter of Gullah sweetgrass basketry, one of the most beautiful handicrafts of African origin in the United States. The remainder of your day is free to enjoy this very walkable city. (B)

It’s your choice! Choose to explore Boone Hall Plantation where you’ll experience southern plantation living as you come to know one of America’s oldest working plantations -OR- opt to explore Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum where you’ll board the impressive USS Yorktown aircraft carrier and walk in the footsteps of sailors and oˆ icers as you tour the flight deck; you’ll also have time at the Congressional Medal of Honor Museum and marvel at the largest collection of military aircraft in the United States. This evening, join your fellow travellers for a farewell dinner at a local restaurant. (B, D)
