Local Trips and Tours   

Each term we strive to offer a few trips and tours (except for Winter/January term). Some may be local tours, others may be exploring the uniqueness of towns and cities surrounding Spartanburg Country. Check back here often to see what is in the lineup each term. For our trips and tours, transportation is provided either in a bus or large sprinter van, or minibus. Please read the details of each trip carefully before registering for any of them. Please note that cancellations will not be refunded one week before the trip or tour.

  • A short stretch of South Carolina – known as the Jocassee Gorges – contains more species of trees than almost anywhere else on Earth. The majority are deciduous trees that sport a unique look every spring and fall. Explore the science behind changing colors and meet some of the area’s most interesting and colorful trees - up close and personal - from the comfort of a pontoon boat. Be prepared to view trees in a whole new way… as living, breathing individuals. We will also visit some of the beautiful waterfalls and wild rivers for which Lake Jocassee is so famous.

    A tour for the senses!! Come experience the sights, scents, sounds and tastes of a working farm and distillery. First, we will take a tour of the farm where we will be able to smell and taste the herbs that will be used to make the finest liqueurs. From there, we will enter the world of maceration. See and learn how an herb becomes a "garden-to-glass" experience. From the distillery, we will venture into the tasting room to have a taste of VICARO's award winning liqueurs. Transportation and the tasting fee are included in the price of this unique event.
