Shores of History Aboard the 130-Guest Yorktown
October 28 – November 7, 2013
For this custom-designed itinerary, we have selected some of the finest antebellum homes and gardens in America: Westover Plantation, a Georgian mansion in Virginia shaded by tall, leafy tulip poplars that are more than 150 years old; Charleston’s Heyward-Washington House, filled with some of the finest furnishings ever made in 18th-century America; Airlie Gardens, boasting 67 acres of formal, woodland gardens and a majestic Airle oak that dates from 1545; and the magnificently restored gardens of Tryon Palace in North Carolina.
