The Southern Coast is a land where live oak tress are draped with Spanish moss. Where the Capitol Cities have cobble stoned streets, manicured squares, pastel colored antebellum homes. The region is filled with charm and beauty, history that dates to the first colonies, people who speak with a proudly distinct accent and wonderful food mush of which comes fresh from the sea.
Discover the Palmetto Low Country with a trip to Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC. While only 2 hours apart, these towns are very different. Savannah is both hip and historic, robust and refined, a city filled with global sophistication, funky nightlife and fabulous food. While the Historic Downtown District has stood throughout Charleston’s history as the cultural and commercial capital of the South. This trip is particularly beautiful in March and April when the azaleas are blooming.
Charleston is a magnificent city, steeped in history, brimming with high culture and art, and boasting some of the South’s finest cuisine. Ride a carriage over the cobbled streets, cruise to Fort Sumter, and explore your choice of elegant Plantations.

Can you believe it’s been 22 years since Forrest Gump sat on that bench and told us “life is like a box of chocolates?” It was in July 1994, that this slow, but sweet character played by Tom Hanks entered theaters—and our hearts. At U S Tours, we thought today, “for no particular reason” that we could celebrate and remember the simple life of Forrest, while touring movie sites, while eating shrimp, and while discovering the Southern beauty of Savannah and Beaufort – two towns that “goes together like peas and carrots.”
