Dear Friend of HSM, 


Did you know that we run historical motor coach tours? 


The Michiganders on the RoadT motor coach tour program was developed by HSM
to allow Michiganders to experience the culture and heritage of all 50
states with a group of like-minded history enthusiasts. Each tour is
handcrafted by me, HSM's Director for Education, and includes one-of-a-kind
itineraries featuring historical stops, museums, local attractions, nightly
dining experiences in local restaurants, and comfortable accommodations at
modern chain hotels. 


One of our upcoming tours is a trip to Charleston from May 1 to 9 called
"Southern Hospitality Tour: Charleston & The Old South." Are you interested
in exploring one of America's oldest cities with me? Would you like to see
what all the fuss is about? Are you looking to experience local history
around the United States, where all the details are handled for you? 


Join us as we travel to the culturally significant areas of the south and
explore Charleston, America's hospitality center. Charleston ranks among
America's premier tourist destinations, and for good reason: the beautiful
city is steeped in history. Come experience its cultural heritage on our
Southern Hospitality Tour. You'll also spend two days in North Carolina at
Biltmore Estate in Asheville and Old Salem Village in Winston-Salem. 


This 9-day, 8-night tour from May 1 to 9 is a fantastic package deal with
all dinners, breakfasts, accommodations, entrance fees, and transportation
included for $1,995 per person.
