Sweet tea and the sea. Magnolias and Muscadine. Fresh, ripe peaches and inviting pillared porches. Follow the oak-lined streets to the endless delights awaiting in the genteel South. Beginning and ending in Atlanta, this southern U.S. tour stops in the capital city of Columbia before heading to the Spanish moss-draped coast of South Carolina and Georgia. Savor the high style of Charleston’s King Street as well as its delectable low country cuisine. Clippity-clop down the mansion-lined lanes of picturesque Beaufort in a horse-drawn carriage. Walk in the footsteps of Vanderbilts and Rockefellers at the once ultra-exclusive Jekyll Island Club. Board an open-air trolley to discover the famed squares of storied Savannah. A visit to the American Prohibition Museum’s Speakeasy is the perfect place to raise a glass to your newfound accent as well as your newly discovered love of shrimp and grits, she-crab soup, and fried green tomatoes. Cheers, y’all!
