Tybee Island - Savannah’s Beach

 

This highly acclaimed seaside getaway offers an unparalleled experience that will both relax and revitalize you. We’ll be spending 4 nights at Hotel Tybee overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean and voted Tybee Islands’ Best Hotel in 2015 & 2016! It is the largest and only full service hotel on Tybee Island. Each guest room features luxurious white bedding, private balcony overlooking the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, microwave and refrigerator. We’ll tour Georgia’s oldest and tallest active lighthouse, Tybee Island Lighthouse. General James Oglethorpe ordered the first lighthouse to be built in 1736 to serve as a daymark to guide the navigable channels of the Savannah River. Then we will continue on to tour Fort Pulaski. Completed in 1874, the fort was considered impenetrable in its day, but an attack by Union soldier’s rifled cannons severely damaged the masonry structure and changed defense strategies thereafter. Fort Pulaski was Robert E. Lee’s first assignment as an Engineer after he graduated from West Point.

 

Charleston, SC

 

Since her founding in 1670, historic Charleston has known both greatness and tragedy, abundance mingled with despair and triumph tempered by defeat. Indeed, much of the story may be set forth in a single word - SURVIVAL. Charlestonians are proud of their heritage reflected in the many beautifully preserved 18th and 19th century buildings which retain the grace and grandeur of colonial America. See all the major points of interest on a guided tour: The Battery, Rainbow Row, Cabbage Row, Fort Sumter and the harbour historic homes and churches. We’ll take a narrated Charleston Carriage tour through the residential historic district. Experience 25-30 blocks of beautiful historic houses, gardens, mansions, churches and parks. We will also tour the Charleston Tea Plantation. Over 100 years ago, tea planters brought their finest ancestral tea bushes from China, India and Ceylon to the verdant Low Country of South Carolina. Now the direct descendants of those very plants have been restored to their former grandeur at this Plantation - a lush, subtropical tea farm nestled on a serene sea island near Charleston. It is from this setting of great natural beauty and colonial pride that they bring us American Class Tea, the only tea grown in America. Enjoy the staff’s exciting world of tea production.

 

Savannah, GA

 

Savannah is known as the “Hostess City of the South” and is the first planned city in America. Our tour will include sights along the Riverfront, an area adjacent to the Savannah River where old cotton warehouses have been turned into charming shops and restaurants. Our overview tour will include several of the historic squares, often called the “Jewels of the South”, several sights made famous from the many movies filmed here and lots of historic monuments, City Market, Forsythe Park, Colonial Park and Cemetery and Savannah College of Art and Design. A local guide will share tales and secrets of the stately mansion as we meander through the largest, urban historic landmark, district in North America (2.2 square miles). After touring the Historic District a stop will be made to visit the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. You have some free time for lunch and shopping along Riverstreet, a nine-block area along the Savannah River. Take a tour of the Ships of the Sea Museum which is located in the William Scarborough mansion. The museum features a wonderful collection of ship models, paintings and maritime antiques that will interest everyone.

 

Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum

 

Located only minutes from downtown Savannah, where the Eighth Air Force was activated in 1942, the Museum features over 90,000 square feet of exhibits, interactive displays, historical artifacts and a magnificent collection of aviation art. See a visually realistic mission experience, a World renowned Research Center and a beautiful Memorial Gardens. In 1983 Major General Lewis E. Lyle, USAF, a B-17 bomber pilot and veteran of over 70 combat missions during World War II, and other veterans began planning a museum to honor the men and women who helped defeat Nazi aggression by serving in or supporting the greatest air armada the world had ever seen—the Eighth Air Force. On May 14, 1996, the vision became a reality with the dedication of the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. The Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum honors the Mighty Eighth’s proud legacy by preserving the stories of courage, character and patriotism displayed by the men and women of the Eighth Air Force from World War II to present. Each exhibit becomes a compelling and powerful example of sacrifice, courage, and patriotism. Among the exhibits are Prelude to War, Battle of Britain, From Savannah to the UK, and the Honoring the Eighth Gallery. The Mission Experience and Combat Gallery includes vintage aircrafts, interactive exhibits and static displays. Escape and Evasion, Tuskegee Airmen, and the Prisoner of War are all stories relating experiences of various bomb and fighter groups of the Eighth. Post World War II and Fly Girls of World War II are two of the most recent areas of exhibition. Begin a two hour docent led tour of National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force followed by a delicious private dinner with the sounds of Bugle Boy music in the background.
