|Rainbow Row, Charleston, SC|
Rainbow Row is the name for a series of thirteen colorful historic houses in Charleston, South Carolina. It represents the longest cluster of Georgian row houses in the United States. The houses are located north of Tradd St. and south of Elliot St. on East Bay Street, that is, 79 to 107 East Bay Street. The name Rainbow Row was coined after the pastel colors they were painted as they were restored in the 1930s and 1940s. It is a popular tourist attraction and is one of the most photographed parts of Charleston.

|Tybee Island Lighthouse, Tybee Island, GA|
The Tybee Island Light Station, originally constructed in 1736, is Georgia’s oldest, tallest lighthouse and one of America’s most complete historic light station complexes. It has guided mariners safely into the Savannah River for close to 300 years. All of its original support buildings are still located on the five-acre site off US-80 at Fort Screven. Still a functioning navigational aid, the station’s light, courtesy of a first order Fresnel lens, can be seen 18 miles offshore. Visitors willing to climb the 178 steps to the top of the recently restored lighthouse will enjoy a spectacular view of the entire island.
