On a creek excursion aboard the Springfield, we’ll hear about the tidal creeks, surrounding land and significant history of the colonial rice plantations that once made up Brookgreen Gardens. Our home for 2 nights is the beachfront Hampton Inn. It is not your average Hampton and boasts gorgeous oceanfront views.
