Edisto Island is the last of the islands off the coast of South Carolina not yet commercialized and about an hour drive South of Charleston
The Drive in…Edisto Island was developed by English and Barbadian colonists for large cotton and rice plantations in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with labor done by hundreds of enslaved Africans.

The Chautauqua Institute on Chautauqua Lake in New York — one of my favorite places! Idyllic, serene and quiet with a rich history and wholesome activity for all ages…
As much as I enjoy my morning cup of coffee, it’s the coffee time that is as important. The early morning walk across Bestor Plaza for the Daily Chautauquan is a precious ritual. When our children were young and we were fortunate enough to be able to spend the Summers here, getting their picture in the Daily before season’s end was the challenge and when it appeared – a very exciting treat!
Arts and Entertainment—
The Gateway District Organization has a variety of walking tours with wonderful docents giving fun, intersting and very informative walking tours of the legendary neighborhoods of Downtown Cleveland. They are a summer treat and time very well spent!
