Southern Tales

Steeped in history, Charleston on the Atlantic coast welcomes you to stroll cobblestone streets in the French Quarter and tour the country’s only tea plantation. When you leave the city, follow the Ashley River Road National Scenic Byway inland to uncover grand plantation estates like the Magnolia Plantation, Drayton Hall and Middleton Place. Inland, the Applachians beckon travelers with endless trails, streams and lakes.
