The National Railway Historical Society, Washington, D.C. Chapter, Inc. (DCNRHS) presents


The Low Country Limited – Garden Sense

First Class Private Railcar Journey to Charleston or  Savannah

From Washington, DC, Thursday-Sunday, May 1-4, 2014

  SOLD OUT  

Join us this Spring for a weekend First Class voyage aboard the classic 1930s Pullman Dover Harbor railroad car to the charming coastal Deep South!  On this special journey, you will be traveling with the hosts of WMAL Radio's Garden Sense program.

     With this rail-only trip from D.C., choose your own tour destination—Charleston, South Carolina or Savannah, Georgia. Both cities offer a range of delights, including a full palette of history, cuisine, culture, and adventure. To learn more or to find events, sights, or a hotel, visit charlestoncvb.com  or savannah-visit.com.

     You’ll depart mid-morning from Washington’s Union Station on Thursday, May 1st with Amtrak’s Palmetto to arrive in Charleston or Savannah by late evening. Our gracious white-jacketed stewards will serve you lunch and dinner, along with plentiful snacks and beverages. While on board, you can enjoy the ever-changing scenery and relax in the comfortable lounge.

     Neither destination requires a car to see many of the architectural and historic sites or to enjoy delicious regional restaurants. You can tour either compact, enchanting city on foot after taxi-ing to a downtown hotel. Or, you can rent a car to visit outlying sites or the Atlantic beaches—with advance reservation, Hertz has a taxi arrangement to their nearby rental facilities.

            You’ll return home aboard Dover Harbor on Sunday, May 4th via the northbound Palmetto, departing Savannah in early morning and departing Charleston mid-morning. Your onboard service will include a delectable brunch and dinner, along with cocktails and softer drinks, for an evening arrival in Washington, in time to enjoy a good night’s sleep at home before a new week.
