Comments Charleston, SC & Savannah, GA
Mercer Williams House--Savannah
Fort Sumter, Charleston, South Carolina
We are back as of last
Thursday evening. What a great trip we had! Everything went as planned. In
Charleston, we walked our legs off—didn’t drive anywhere except to go out to
Middleton Plantation. The history walk was great. Edmonston-Alston house
was good and then we toured the Nathaniel Russell home-even better than
Edmonston. Fort Sumter tour was good, took in the Marion Park Farmers Mkt and
then went on Charlotte St home tour—so interesting. On Sunday, we spent 5 hours
at Middleton Plantation—carriage ride, walked to all exhibits, toured the home,
and ate lunch there! Then walked the King Street Second Sunday street
fair. Back roads to Savannah
on Monday: Beaufort was pretty/ate lunch by the water; Bluffton was the perfect
laid back, rural S.C. town. Savannah: Trolley tour
on Tuesday a.m. and then in the afternoon, we walked to Owens Thomas House,
Davenport House and the Cathedral of St John the Baptist and toured all of them.
On Wednesday, we went to 3 art museums and toured the Mercer Williams house. On Thursday, drove to
Ft. Pulaski and Tybee Island (light house and lunch there) and then drove to the
airport. We walked so much and
saw so much in both cities—it was wonderful! Never went to Lady and
Sons or Mrs. Wilkes, but ate at some great restaurants in both
cities. Thank you for all of
your help in planning our trip. The condo in Charleston turned out to be
perfect—right in the heart of everything and a well-appointed place. The Hampton
Inn in the historic district in Savannah was a great location and good
everything you did for our trip.
Sorry to be so
long-winded, but just couldn’t help it!
