Hilton Head has a thriving community of art galleries, performing arts centers, museums, unique dining and festivals. The Cultural Traveler’s Hilton Head Arts...and All That Jazz tour starts with a private talk at the Art League of Hilton Head Gallery followed by music and dinner at The Jazz Corner.

Highlights include a trip to Roanoke Rapids and its Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail or an encounter with a 1920’s African-American resettlement community in the town of Tillery. Whether your Halifax County experience includes one or all of the towns along the mighty Roanoke, you’re sure to be immersed in culture and beauty.
They say that in Fort Worth,
“cowboys and culture collide.” In other words the city has kept a tight hold on the reigns of the past while still embracing a modern era. A modern era that includes premier shopping and dining in a 35-block area called Sundance Square. Take part in
the Fort Worth Stockyards Western Experience and wiitness a cattle drive, visit an authentic saloon, or take in a show at the world’s largest honky-tonk. Or, enjoy the Fort Worth Art Lovers Escape and experience a different, yet equally engaging, side of Fort Worth.
