We traveled along the Atlantic ocean and the Pacific ocean checking out college campuses, unique hotel properties, and local family-friendly restaurants. Stops along the way included Mitchell College, Salve Regina, Brown, UC Santa Barbara, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and UC Irvine.
Ninety-five percent humidity didn't keep us from enjoying the beautiful cities of Charleston and Beaufort, SC. Amid gracious oak trees and cobblestone streets, were two historic universities: College of Charleston and the University of South Carolina Beaufort.
We especially enjoyed the fabulous Belmond Charleston Place located right off King Street. Great dining at local restaurants included Husk and Hominy Grill.
Campanile College Tours spent a week in Southern California, checking out campuses and great properties for our families.
Our first stop was at the Intercontinental Century City Hotel located in the Beverly Hills area - true "LA" vibe for families interested in Los Angeles campuses. Heading down the coast, we toured the fabulous Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes - a perfect layover before heading further south. We drove by stunning coastline in Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach before arriving in LaJolla, the home of the University of California, San Diego where we had a private guided tour with an Ocean Phyisist.
