Also enjoy time in St. Simons Island, with its unspoiled beauty and beaches, laid-back lifestyle, and charming communities.History comes to life during your visits to Atlanta’s Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, where you’ll learn more about the man and his legacy; Charleston’s Boone Hall Plantation & Gardens, America’s most photographed plantation and where you’ll tour the mansion, see the slave cabins, and visit the beautiful gardens; and Savannah’s American Prohibition Museum, bringing the roaring 20s to life. In Charleston, Globus has included a special Gullah luncheon, where you’ll learn about the rich history and culture of the Gullah people, the descendants of slaves who lived in the low country. Enjoy a horse-drawn carriage ride through the narrow, oak-lined streets in picturesque Beaufort and sightseeing trolley tours in both Savannah and Jekyll Island.
