30 Apr Take a #VirtualTour of Old 96 District
The wanderlust is starting to kick in. We’re getting tired of seeing the same walls every day, and taking to the internet as a means of virtual armchair escapism. Many destinations like us are sharing virtual tours, insider videos, and other content during this tough time, and we’d like you to hop on board! After scouring the internet, here are a bunch of virtual tours, sneak peeks, and insider glimpses to satisfy your travel cravings for now, and maybe put some ideas for places to see in person when the time is right for a family road trip.
The historic Abbeville Opera House in Abbeville, SC, has one very loyal patron: a ghost who has attended every show for the past 111 years with her own reserved seat! This news clip tells her story.
The Ninety Six National Historic Site in Ninety Six, SC, has a lot to share as well. This Revolutionary War battleground uses their Facebook page to educate visitors on colonial life. Learn about 18th century practices and tools, and even take a peek at what goes on during a historical excavation!
