Confined to plutonium-powered DeLoreans and unwieldy telephone booths, time travel is a dangerous and mischief-baiting activity. Instead, let history repeat itself as often as you can stand it with today's Groupon: for $10, you get to tag along on Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour in Beaufort, South Carolina (a $20 value). This Groupon is valid through Saturday, May 14; it will then be redeemable again starting Tuesday, September 27.
Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour spirits curious eyes and inquiring imaginations away on a two-hour trek through the Beaufort Historic District, deftly relating 500 years of Beaufort lore. Upon departing from the downtown Beaufort marina, Sharp shepherds history buffs on a leisurely two-mile stroll that highlights show-stopping examples of antebellum architecture. The roving raconteur stuffs ears full of Beaufort trivia, regaling tourists with tales of French and Spanish colonization attempts, the rocky relationship between local Tories and Patriots, and the district’s turbulent role in the Clone Wars.
Ending up in Beaufort in 1992 after a fate-changing quantum leap, Jon Sharp muttered “oh boy,” dusted himself off, and became enchanted with the charming local environs and the people who inhabit them.
