Program #20693ENZ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Embark on a holiday adventure that celebrates the New Year in the heart of Charleston and the Lowcountry! Revel in the festivities of New Year’s Eve as you dine in and enjoy the ambiance of the Historic District. Marvel in the architecture of Charleston’s Historic District — and admire its holiday finery — during an expert-led walk. Experience the Lowcountry’s plantation history during field trips to Middleton Place and Boone Hall Plantation, and delight in holiday traditions at the historic Nathaniel Russell and Edmondston-Alston Homes. Clap and sing along at the Circular Church to Civil War songs, spirituals, gospel, jazz, some Gullah, and Gershwin.


Highlights

• Spend New Year's Eve on St. James Island at the Holiday Festival of Lights before enjoying a dinner at the Mills House and attending a celebration at historic Marion Square.
• Experience the history of plantation life during a field trip to Middleton Place, a National Historic Landmark situated on the Ashley River.
• Marvel in the artistry of sweet-grass baskets during a demonstration by a local Gullah artisan.
