Hopefully you will all have GPS to help out.

Penn Center is a historic site, the first school for slaves following the civil war. It is also the place MLKing came frequently to minister. There are several exhibits there, open on Saturday. The ride around the island is quite rural, and offers several nice views of Port Royal Sound.
