      About this trip

      North Carolina's third oldest town of Beaufort opens private historic homes to the public annually in June.  This is a chance to see homes built by sailors, pirates, merchants and skilled craftsmen as early as the 1700's that have been lovingly lived in and preserved by families for many generations.  Celebrating the 62nd anniversary, the Old Homes Tour offers tours of a eleven homes and gardens as well as the Beaufort Historic Site along the beautiful historic Front, Ann, Moore and Marsh Streets.  This year's highlight is the Easton House built in 1771 and featured in our State Magazine several years ago.  A self guided brochure and map enable you to enjoy this walking tour at your own pace coupled with time for lunch, visits to other historic sites, churches, art galleries and specialty shops.  It's a full day in a seaport town filled with charm and character!

      I love to travel so in my partially retired life I decided to adapt my passion for travel along with 25 years of experience in Travel & Tourism to create Trips by Patty. I received a BA in American History from UNC-Chapel Hill. Not knowing what I was going to do with that degree, I started working as a desk clerk at a hotel in Raleigh. I enjoyed the hotel business and the career path began. Hotel operations and sales, Convention Center operations and marketing, destination marketing with a Convention Visitors Bureau and even a stint as a tour guide. What happened to the history degree? Well, many times when I am escorting my trips I share the history of the destinations we visit. It's a great feeling to take your career skills and adapt them to your own small business. I love what I do and hope you'll join me on a trip one day!

      My wife and I both were very sick the day before the Compass Pointe trip to the Biltmore and we had to cancel. Patty tried to fill the slot but was unsuccessful with such little time to do so. We did not have insurance and I assumed the $1,200 we had paid was lost. But Patty diligently worked with the hotels and restaurants to cancel our portion of the reservations she had made for a bus load of travelers and was able to return over half the money to us. This is outstanding customer service and greatly appreciated.

      Had a very nice time. Patty's trips are always so well organized. Fun group of people as usual. Biltmore and Chihuly were great. Only disappointment was one restaurant for dinner. I also enjoyed Reynolds. It's really nice that she organized that "extra" visit traveling back from Asheville. Very enjoyable trip
