Charleston, SC Holiday Festival of Lights: SECOND WEEK ADDED



Come join us in Charleston, SC for the Holiday Festival of Lights!

This trip has always filled up quickly. In fact, it filled so quickly this year, and we've had so many others wanting to go, that we're adding a second week, from December 13-18. Information and registration forms will be available this week on the FROG website.

Those on the original standby list will be offered a guaranteed spot on the second week, so the number of new spaces will be limited.

Enjoy the gracious southern hospitality of one of America's most charming cities as you step back in time in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina.

Your FROG Charleston "Southern Nights, Southern Lights" adventure includes:
* Five nights of full hookup camping at beautiful James Island County Park, featuring a great campground, six miles of paved hiking / biking trails, beautiful marsh views, and more
* Welcome / orientation dinner
* Carriage tour of historic downtown Charleston peninsula
* Three breakfasts
* One lunch
* Dinner at famous Hymanís Seafood House in historic downtown Charleston (non-seafood selections available)
* Boat tour of Charleston Harbor and visit to Fort Sumter
* Tour of historic Boone Hall Plantation

Your your post Bob a little late for us to attend as we have reservations there for the week of Nov 29 to Dec 5. Sure would have been nice to attend with other FROG folks. Later RJD

Took the same trip thru the Coachmen Owners Club back in November. Had a awesome time! The park is great, abs the lights fantastic. Don't forget the walking trail of lights also. Also if you have a free day consider patriot point state park and the USS YORKTOWN. Spent the whole day, liked it very much.
Down side to trips this time of year (for me anyway) was coming home in a snow/sleet storm. After 5 hours of 35mph driving into Michigan, 30 miles from home a truck lost control and drive into our trailer. Should've stay south one more day.

Kenz,
Wow! What a bummer!! Hope no one was hurt!! Said the same think this past March when we returned home from a 2+ month trip to Florida from January to the beginning of March. Kept looking at the weather when we were headed home and saw a break in the weather and decided to go home while we had a clear shot. No problems travelling but when we arrived home had to clean some snow off the driveway so that we could get our coach on. Wife slipped when we cleaning the snow, fell, and broke her wrist. This time we will wait another 2 weeks before we head home.
Live and learn.

Enjoy the rest of your trip to Charleston and say hello to FROG Bob and Cindy for me.

We're on our way to Charleston from Michigan to participate in the second week of the "Southern Nights, Southern Lights" rally, stopping for the night at Kentucky Horse Park near Lexington.

To our surprise, we found that they are having their own Southern Lights festival here in the park. It probably doesn't compare to what we will see in Charleston next week, but, it was cool to see and were glad that we timed it right.

Looking forward to the rally next week and seeing Bob & Cindy and the other FROG folk.

Nice pics! Loved the carrier. Just a heads up for anyone with a large truck. Parking in town is not dually/long truck friendly. Spent considerable time driving around trying to find a spot for my dually. Garages are short, lots small. Park on the water by battery park (free) and use the trolly. Campground should have a trolly map. We walked from the water to the Charleston museum (very nice) about a mile and a half. Walk to broad street and catch the trolley.
