Very nice hotel--much nicer than you might expect for an EconoLodge. They have just renovated all the rooms, and they are up-to-date with plugs, USB ports, wifi, and new furnishings. Staff very friendly and helpful. Can't do better than this at this price!

Anyway after 15/20 minutes brisk walk we reach the visitor centre find the Grayline bus in the bus shed behind, pay our $21pp for a 90 minute tour and after a breather we are on our way. The buses are all mini buses to get in and out of the narrows streets of the old town and there are only 12/14 passengers on ours so outs of ...
... the money they were asking for the tickets I feel we were again on the losing end of the deal. Just put it down to experience.
Next stop would be a tour of the Magnolia Plantation. It was founded in 1676 by the Drayton Family and is still in the hands of their descendants today.
It is the oldest public tourist site in what is known as "the low country" opening its doors to the general public in 1870.
