East Coast Inland Passage (Baltimore to Jacksonville) Itinerary

Day 1 - Baltimore, Maryland

Baltimore is the colourful, diverse city that is Maryland's largest city and economic hub. It is known for its beautiful harbour; quirky, distinct neighbourhoods; unique museums and the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital to the east with the University of Maryland Medical Centre to the west. With the rich history that the city boasts however, it's amazing that Baltimore hasn't been deemed one of America's greatest historical destinations.

Day 2 - Saint Michaels, Maryland

Day 3 - Norfolk, Virginia

Like many other old Southern towns, Norfolk has undergone a renaissance, one that's especially visible in the charming shops and cafés in the historic village of Ghent. There's plenty to see in this old navy town.

Day 4 - Kitty Hawk, North Carolina

Day 5 - Beaufort, North Carolina

Day 6 - Wilmington, North Carolina

Day 7 - East Coast Inland Passage

Day 8 - Charleston, South Carolina

Wandering through the city's famous Historic District, you would swear it is a movie set. Dozens of church steeples punctuate the low skyline, and horse-drawn carriages pass centuries-old mansions and town houses, their stately salons offering a crystal-laden and parquet-floored version of Southern comfort. Outside, magnolia-filled gardens overflow with carefully tended heirloom plants. At first glance, the city may resemble a 19th-century etching come to life—but look closer and you'll see that block after block of old structures have been restored. Happily, after three centuries of wars, epidemics, fires, and hurricanes, Charleston has prevailed and is now one of the South's best-preserved cities.Although it’s home to Fort Sumter, where the bloodiest war in the nation's history began, Charleston is also famed for its elegant houses. These handsome mansions are showcases for the "Charleston style," a distinctive look that is reminiscent of the West Indies, and for good reason. Before coming to the Carolinas in the late 17th century, many early British colonists first settled on Barbados and other Caribbean islands. In that warm and humid climate they built homes with high ceilings and rooms opening onto broad "piazzas" (porches) at each level to catch sea breezes. As a result, to quote the words of the Duc de La Rochefoucauld, who visited in 1796, "One does not boast in Charleston of having the most beautiful house, but the coolest."Preserved through the hard times that followed the Civil War and an array of natural disasters, many of Charleston's earliest public and private buildings still stand. Thanks to a rigorous preservation movement and strict architectural guidelines, the city's new structures blend in with the old. In many cases, recycling is the name of the game—antique handmade bricks literally lay the foundation for new homes. But although locals do dwell—on certain literal levels—in the past, the city is very much a town of today.Take, for instance, the internationally heralded Spoleto Festival USA. For 17 days every spring, arts patrons from around the world come to enjoy international concerts, dance performances, operas, and plays at various venues citywide. Day in and day out, diners can feast at upscale restaurants, shoppers can look for museum-quality paintings and antiques, and lovers of the outdoors can explore Charleston's outlying beaches, parks, and waterways. But as cosmopolitan as the city has become, it's still the South, and just beyond the city limits are farm stands cooking up boiled peanuts, the state's official snack.

Day 9 - Beaufort, South Carolina

Day 10 - Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Day 11 - Savannah, Georgia

Day 12 - Saint Simons Island, Georgia

Day 13 - Jekyll Island, Georgia

Day 14 - Fernandina Beach, Florida

Day 15 - Jacksonville, Florida

Considered to be the birthplace of Southern Rock music, it's only to be expected that music is such an important part of Jacksonville. With several iconic concert halls and countless bars and clubs, the city is a must visit for anyone interested in music. Other interesting sights include the largest urban park system in the US, a world class zoo, and several golf courses.
