Join a small group of Flying Longhorns for a special holiday trip to Charleston, South Carolina. Charleston is truly like no other thanks to its elegant architecture, cobblestone walkways, Lowcountry cuisine and charming residents. Whether you are a Charleston expert or novice, you will not want to miss Charleston decked out for Christmas.  

Trip Highlights

Four nights at the iconic Planters Inn (a Relais & Châteaux property) located on the corner of Market and Meeting streets, in the heart of Charleston’s Historic District.

Visits to the great museum houses decorated for the season by local designers. 

A Christmas Candlelight Service at The Citadel. The South Carolina Corps of Cadets will perform lessons and carols in the grand, Gothic Summerall Chapel. An absolute favorite annual tradition for Charleston’s residents and visitors.
