HIGHLIGHTS:    Myrtle Beach Show, The Outer Banks, “The Lost Colony”, Kitty Hawk, Jockey Ridge, Cape Hatteras, Colonial Williamsburg, & lots more … 8 MEALS

 

MAY 22 … Our group makes the drive across South Carolina to the resort coastal city of Myrtle Beach as we enjoy a Welcome Dinner and a show at the CAROLINA OPRY.  (D)

MAY 23  … Travel to the historic coast of North Carolina, as we will stay for 2 nights on this remote finger of land that extends out into the Atlantic.  The Outer Banks consist of a string of narrow islands and peninsulas that lie between the ocean and the sounds along 125 miles of North Carolina coastline.  Through years of storms and shipwrecks, the islands have developed a distinct culture. Rich in history, it was on Roanoke Island that the first English colony was settled in 1585, as Sir Walter Raleigh founded a town on Roanoke Island in 1585.  We enjoy a delicious meal and the ocean breezes to begin our 2 night stay. (B,D)

MAY 24  …Today we explore the Outer Banks …  Jockey Ridge, an imposing site, a sand dune over 100 feet high that is a popular launching point for hang gliders and the tallest dune in the eastern United States;  Kitty Hawk, where the Wright Brothers successfully launched their first flight in 1903. The Cape Hatteras National Seashore extends 45 square miles along the Outer Banks, and we travel this area of natural and wild beauty to the town of Hatteras, with the tallest brick lighthouse in the United States, standing at 208 feet tall,.  The evening is capped with dinner and a preview performance of ‘THE LOST COLONY”, re-enacting the failed attempt of the English Settlement and the mysteries surrounding it. (B,D)

MAY 25  … This morning our trail takes us into historic WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia and the surrounding area is so rich in history, as we travel back to the 1700’s in our visit to this first Capital of the Colonies.  Authentically restored by the Rockefeller Foundation, Williamsburg offers its visitors an opportunity to share the history, culture, cuisine, and architecture of the Colonial period of our country.  We will tour the Governor's Palace, Old Bruton Parish Church, the Capitol, and the shops of artisans and craftsmen.  Lunch is a treat in one of the historic restored Taverns on the Duke of Gloucester Street. After some shopping time, we continue to Richmond for our last evening of the trip. (B,L)

MAY 26  …    It’s been a great trip full of wonderful sights, but now we travel home with fond memories and a new understanding of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and historic Virginia.  (B)
