Staff Report

MOREHEAD – Morehead State University’s Alumni and Retirees associations will go back in time to the beautiful and historic cities of Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia, traveling by motor coach Wednesday, Nov. 9-Sunday, Nov. 13.

The $799 per person double occupancy cost includes transportation, hotel, four breakfasts and four dinners. The single occupancy cost is $979. An initial deposit of $100 per person is due Friday, Aug. 5, with the final payment due Friday, Sept, 16.

“These trips are a wonderful opportunity for our alumni and friends to travel together,” said Allison Caudill, alumni relations and development assistant director. “We coordinated a trip to the Savannah area a few years ago and it was a big hit. We have had several requests for the Charleston area, so we are excited to add this to the agenda. Repeat travelers will enjoy different sites and restaurants during the day in Savannah. The cost also includes a contribution to the MSU Foundation which entitles individuals to a year-long membership in the MSU Alumni Association.”

Among the highlights of the three days in Charleston will be a guided tour of the historic city where the Civil War began, including its antebellum homes and beautiful gardens as well as the Nathaniel Russell House Museum which is recognized as one of the nation’s most important neoclassical dwellings; a harbor dinner cruise featuring a three-course gourmet dinner and breathtaking views of the harbor. Another special activity will be a tour of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Dinner during the last night will be at the Charleston Crab House on the James River.

After a night’s sleep, the group moves on to Savannah where they will experience 270 years of rich history, going back to the Civil War with a guided tour of the city’s historic district featuring Savannah’s gracious squares, magnificent fountains and Southern-style homes. The travelers will also have the opportunity to attend a live musical performance at the Savannah Theater and dinner on the city’s riverfront.

“All in all it’s a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the rich traditions of this beautiful area, with all the stress of planning an itinerary, driving and parking eliminated,” said Caudill. “But space is limited, so you need to claim your seat by making a deposit by the deadline.
