"It’s Complicated." This is not the slogan for South Carolina, but it could be! This beautiful state has a rich history of both glory and darkness, full of promise and broken dreams. This adventure slices through some of South Carolina’s most poignant landmarks with a lightening dose of arts, crafts, and culinary activities. We will visit Charleston, marveling at the magnificent mansions, shops and architecture of the historic district … and the sober starkness of the Old Slave Mart Museum located within. Soak in a guided tour of Fort Sumter and discover the vital role this military installation played in both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Meet celebrated novelist, cookbook author and farmer Dori Saunders. Space is limited to 28 people for this enlightening and soul-searching experience, so reserve your spot today!
