About this trip

This day trip features a visit to the Country's third oldest city of Georgetown, SC.  Founded in 1734, Georgetown was once one of the wealthiest cities of it's time due to the production of rice and indigo.  Located at the confluence of four rivers that feed into the Winyah Bay, Georgetown's Historic Harborwalk offers an opportunity to enjoy lunch on your own at several restaurants, spend a little time shopping (there are some really fun shops) or visit the Rice Museum or newly renovated South Carolina Maritime Museum.    Following the visit to Georgetown, we pay a visit to the fascinating Hobcow Barony  for a two hour guided tour.  Hobcow Barony is a privately owned 16,000 acre research and historical reserve.   Tour Guides join our bus for a tour that showcases the diverse low country  ecosystem along with the history of the reserve from its’ plantation days of indigo and rice production to more recent history when it was a place of great social and political gatherings at the home of Wall St. Financier, Bernard Baruch.  Stops along the tour include the historic Hobcow House, the Friendfield  Village, a 19th-century slave village and the Discovery Center.  I toured the Friendfield Village two years ago and can tell you that it is a fascinating interpretation!

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!

It was a great trip. Patty designed our travel so there were three hours at the mall, plenty of time to have lunch as well as shop. Patty is a great hostess, offering water and snacks during the bus ride. I look forward to my next trip by Patty.

We had a wonderful time.....love traveling with Patty......Can't wait for our next adventure. Thank you Patty and crew, Maureen
A wonderful shopping trip. I always have a great time on Trips by Patti. And I will continue to take her trips.
We all had a wonderful time, even with the rain. The tours were very interesting, especially the Gullah tour, which was very eye opening. I lived in the area for three years and had no clue about the history of Beaufort. Patty is a GEM!
My husband and I enjoyed Beaufort SC. We met great people on the bus trip, laughed a lot, enjoyed dining at local restaurants, and learned some History. The accomodations were comfortable and a great location close to Downtown Beaufort. Patty always is well organized an ensures her travelers are happy, comfortable, and are enjoying the traveling experience.
