Peachy Day

Peachy Day

$99per person

Life’s a Peach” is more than a slogan and today we will explore parts of South Carolina and discover some of the ways her inhabitants have made their livings over the years, some common and some very odd! We depart Charleston this morning and travel to the SC Cotton Trail. Our first stop will be the SC Cotton Museum in Bishopville which showcases the humble plant that drove the advancement of agriculture, transportation, textiles, and many other technologies. Just like the color of cotton blossoms, the world changed with the rise of cotton production in the South. You will have time to explore the museum and visit the gift shop. Our next stop is a visit to The Button Museum. This unique attraction is the result of the late Mr. Dalton Steven’s insomnia. Fondly remembered as The Button King, Mr. Stevens spent years sewing and gluing buttons onto everything imaginable: a hearse, a couple of coffins, an entire outhouse, a piano, a guitar, and much more. He was even invited on The Tonight Show, David Letterman, Regis and Kathy Lee, CNN and more. Then it’s on to the beautiful little town of Hartsville that sprung up around the Hart cotton plantation. Here we will enjoy a lunch buffet at Pam’s Restaurant. After lunch, we switch from cotton and buttons to peaches! We travel to McLeod’s Peach Farm Roadside Market in McBee, SC, where you will be able to purchase fresh peaches, jams, jellies and more. You will also have time to take a trip down memory lane at Macs Pride Farm Museum, home to over 20 antique cars, antique farming equipment, butter churns, and phonograph players! One section is dedicated to the ladies of the farm and includes antique sewing machines, a wood stove, a wringer washing machine and more. If scheduling allows, we may even get to visit the packing shed. Sadly, our trip to the Cotton Trail must come to an end as we journey back to Charleston with fond memories, new friends, and some sweet peaches!
