March 16th-24th 2024
Leave behind the mud and slush of March in Maine and travel with us to see azaleas, daffodils, honeysuckle and cherry blossoms in Charleston SC.
Our trip will include a guided tour of Charleston, where we will explore the historic and culinary influences of the Gullah Heritage and visit the manicured gardens at the National Historic Landmark, Middleton Place. We will visit a Charleston Plantation where we will learn about the daily life and the relationships among the men, women, and children who lived and worked there. We will have some time in the Charleston City Market, one of the nation's oldest public markets with over 300 vendors, enjoy a scenic harbor cruise, and take a trolley tour of a Charleston Tea Garden. On our way home we will visit Maymont, a 100-acre Victorian estate and public park in Richmond, Virginia. It contains Maymont Mansion, now a historic house museum, and arboretum, formal gardens, native wildlife exhibits, and a nature center.
