Tuesday, May 4 - Friday, May 7, 2021
First a quiz...do you know the proper pronunciation and location of our destination? If not it is time to learn and as a bonus we will give you a chance a few weeks later to visit its “twin” This escape will focus on the South Carolina coastal jewel of Beaufort, located just 1 hour but a lifestyle leap away from Savannah.
The first day of our relaxing adventure will start with pickup at your door, breakfast at Globe Treks then a 4 hour ride to Beaufort with time after arrival for a private tour. Chartered in 1711, it is the second-oldest city in South Carolina and you will see why Beaufort has been named "Best Small Southern Town" by Southern Living.
Day 2 will feature a private tour of Hunting Island, a short “cruise” to Philips Island, and an inside look at the fascinating Gullah Culture. We will also get an up close look at one of the only publicly accessible lighthouses in SC.
Day 3 will have us on the water again for a 1.5 hour private eco-tour exploring the Story River, a salt marsh estuary created by the network of capillary creeks that lead from Hunting Island. We should spot dolphins as well as other wildlife among the nearly 300 different species of birds such as egrets, herons, terns, bald eagles, roseate spoonbills and pelicans that inhabit the pristine ecosystem.
Our final day will feature a brief visit to SC’s only National Park, Congaree for a short stroll into a old growth cypress forest. Finally, home to your front door via the Globe Treks private car service!
