Classic Beaufort & Charleston, South Carolina...Between Savannah & Charleston lies a hidden jewel. Beaufort is the home to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island - used for training enlisted Marines. The museum exhibits focus on the history of the USMC and the region. This memorable location sits on the banks of the Beaufort River and offers a very walkable main street of shops and eateries. Historic Charleston rivals Savannah as a SouthEast destination and was voted for the third consecutive year, "Top City in the U.S." in the 2013 Conde Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Awards. First shots fired on Fort Sumter began the Civil War. Now, plantations and historic homes from that era remain for visitors to explore. Enjoy authentic southern cuisine and fresh seafood where the locals dine. Shop til' you drop at their historic market for sweet grass baskets, for trending fashion at King Street high-end retail shops, or at small boutiques that offer collectibles and souvenirs.

The waterside Pier & Village offers shopping and dining for everyone & the St. Simon's Island Lighthouse. Jekyll Island is a Georgia State Park where residents purchase their homes, but can only "lease" their state-owned lots. Their beach is tranquil and un-commercialized. The historic district is another National Historic Landmark and features the "club and cottages" in Millionaire's Village.
