Tours are done at your own pace and require a good amount of walking, often over uneven streets and sidewalks. Wear flat, comfortable shoes. You will follow your program and map to each of the sites. You do not have to do the sites in their numbered order.

A full-registration ticket includes a $10 lunch voucher that you can use at your choice of participating downtown restaurants and admission into the closing reception, where you can enjoy drinks and light hors d’oeuvres.

Please dress comfortably. Flat, comfortable shoes are a must both for your comfort and for the protection of historic hardwood floors. Guests in high heels or shoes that could damage floors may be required to remove their shoes prior to entering a private property.

These tours take place in private residences, rather than public spaces, and therefore are not often handicapped accessible. Some, but not all, guests with mobility limitations have felt the tours met their expectations.

Tours go on rain or shine and tickets are not refundable. Please keep in mind that hurricane season is from June 1–November 30. If the Expedition area is under an official NWS-issued tropical storm warning, advising evacuation, the event will be canceled.

What is an Expedition?

A Georgia Trust Expedition invites members and guests to explore a Georgia town located off the beaten path. These day-long, self guided tours are designed to reflect a town’s unique history and development by including a variety of historic sites, from vernacular homesteads to historic industrial sites to grand homes, as well as historic landscapes and natural features. Expeditions educate participants about Georgia’s small town heritage while celebrating ongoing preservation and revitalization efforts.

Tours are self-guided, and guests provide their own transportation. Maps and programs are provided at packet pick-up.
