UW-Sheboygan offers tour to Charleston, SC
The University of Wisconsin-Sheboygan is offering a four-day tour to Charleston, SC, Thursday, October 13-Sunday, October 16, 2011.
Charleston is a most beautifully preserved architectural and historic treasure, with a rich 300-year history. Hundreds of significant and lovingly preserved structures from the colonial and antebellum period grace the Historic District’s narrow streets.
The tour will include:
• round trip ground and air transportation from Fond du Lac to Charleston;
• three nights lodging at The Meeting Street Inn in Historic Charleston;
• continental breakfast daily;
• carriage tour of historic Charleston, including antebellum mansions, churches and cobblestone streets;
• a $20 gift certificate to Justine’s Kitchen, and a visit to Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.
Additionally, participants will receive admission to the Fall Candlelight Tour of Homes & Gardens where participants will step back in time and experience the allure, tradition and history of Charleston’s finest homes and gardens. The Fall Candlelight Tour of Homes & Gardens is sponsored by the Charleston Preservation Society and attracts participants from many states.
The tour fee is $1,249 per person based on double occupancy. A non-refundable $100 deposit (cash or check) must accompany registration followed by the remaining balance due by July 1, 2011. A full refund less $200 is given if cancellation is before July 7, 2011. No refunds are given after July 7, 2011.
Leading the tour will be Leanne Doyle, UW-Fond du Lac Continuing Education Director. She has lead tours to Charleston twice before and has been to Charleston on numerous occasions.
“Charleston is a favorite for many reasons including the history, architecture, southern food, culture, and art.,” Doyle said. “The Meeting Street Inn is charming and located in the historic district. Overall, and especially given the time of the year we will visit, it’s hard to surpass Charleston as a travel destination.”
