We’ve combined the best of this year’s Colorful Mystery Coast and our signature Colorful Carolina Coast itineraries into a new tour containing the highlights of both in a shorter format. It’s perfect for the first-time and return visitor alike!

  • St. Augustine, North America’s oldest city
  • Georgia’s first city, Savannah, and historic Jekyll Island
  • Charleston by land and sea
  • All 2-night hotel stays – historic district accommodations in Savannah and Charleston
  • Day 1

    Fly to Jacksonville, Florida, arriving in the early evening. Rest well. You have a colorful week ahead! Sheraton Hotel Jacksonville – 2 nights

  • Day 2

    St. Augustine is the oldest city in North America, founded in 1565 but first explored by Ponce de Leon as early as 1513. A trolley tour will acquaint you with the area’s unique Spanish history, including a guided visit to the 17th Century Castillo de San Marcos. Will you discover Ponce de Leon’s illusive Fountain of Youth? (FB,L)

  • Day 3

    Midway along the Georgia coast is Jekyll Island, playground of millionaires in the early 20th Century. Tour the secluded village by tram and have lunch in the elegant Club Hotel, then stop by the Georgia Sea Turtle Center where patients are rehabilitated for a return to the wild. Savannah has been welcoming visitorswith style and grace since 1733, and guess what? You’re next! A well-located hotel encourages personal exploration. Just be careful after dark. This is America’s most haunted city, after all! Staybridge Suites Historic District – 2 nights (FB,L)

  • Day 4

    A trolley tour will spotlight Savannah’s intricate system of 24 beautifully landscaped squares teeming with dogwood and
    azalea. Here you’ll find history and beauty in excess… plus a healthy dose of gossip just to keep things lively, delivered by local “characters” you’ll meet along the way. Expect no less from the city that gave us the cotton gin, Paula Deen and The Lady Chablis! In the afternoon, our signature progressive dinner features a unique Low Country Boil and ends with Toot’s famous prune cake
    served at Clayton Place. (FB,D)

  • Day 5

    Drayton Hall, circa 1750, is located along South Carolina’s scenic Ashley River. It is widely considered to be one of the grandest homes in America dating to an era when rice, not cotton, was the South’s king crop. That it has survived to the present day is amazing. Even more amazing is the fact the home was never modernized. No electricity. No plumbing. Centuries-old paint. You’ll see it largely as it looked the day it was finished before the family moved in – not your typical house museum! Continuing on to Charleston, be prepared for your amazement to only grow as you enter this place known throughout the South as “The Holy City.” Your elegant accommodations are guaranteed to set the tone. Meeting Street Inn – 2 nights (FB,L)

  • Day 6

    See Charleston in historic style by horse and carriage, ending at the old City Market for shopping and lunch. Check out the Sweetgrass baskets for the perfect souvenir! An afternoon harbor cruise passes such sites as the hallowed walls of Ft. Sumter where the first shots of the Civil War were fired in 1861, as well as The Battery, which has been home to Charleston’s “rich and famous” since 1681. Your farewell dinner will end the day, and your tour, in style. (B,D)

  • Day 7

    Your homebound flight departs from Charleston International Airport after lunch. (B,L)

A Coos Bay Christmas

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.
