Optional Outing
 

Palmetto Carriage Tours
**Advance Registration Required**
 

This optional outing offered on Friday afternoon features a boxed lunch and a combination ticket for a carriage tour and harbor tour. Boxed lunch will be immediately following the Real Property Case Law Update. Enjoy touring Charleston on a relaxing carriage ride through the Holy City, meandering along charming, tree-covered streets, learning about Charleston‘s captivating history and pivotal role in our nation‘s founding.  Then, explore the Charleston Harbor aboard the classic, 80-foot Carolina Belle, where you’ll hear fascinating local stories and see more than 75 landmarks.

During the 1 hour carriage tour through Charleston, you will:
• Experience 25-30 blocks of Charleston’s historic downtown district
• See houses, gardens, mansions, churches, and parks
• Learn about buildings, history, architecture, flora and the people that make up the “Holy City”
• Learn everything that Charleston has to offer the visitor on a Palmetto Carriage tour
 

The 1.5 hour Harbor Tour on the Carolina Belle features sights such as:
• Fort Sumter - Charleston’s premiere historic attraction
• Civil War Forts Moultrie and Johnson
• USS Yorktown - the famous World War II “Fighting Lady”
• St. Michael’s Episcopal Church
• Stately homes on the Battery
• Cooper River Bridges, including the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge
• Dolphins and pelicans skimming the surface of the water
 

The carriage tour will pick up NCLTA Convention attendees at the Renaissance at 1:00 pm and the harbor tour is a 15-minute walk from the historic district to the wharf. It can be done at 3:30 pm on Friday or on Saturday at 1:30 pm or 3:30 pm. The cost is $37.50 per person, which can be added to your registration form and fees.

If you have specific dietary restrictions or concerns don’t hesitate to alert NCLTA Staff. After dinner the bar will be open again and we encourage folks to mix and mingle.  

 

Dress Code: 

Resort Casual will be the dress code throughout the meeting. It will most likely be HOT! We hope you will embrace this more relaxed atmosphere and enjoy networking and mingling with your colleagues in downtown Charleston.
