Our 2023 Reunion Venue is located in Summerville SC in a newly built area named Nexton. It is a mixed-use community which includes a combination of dining and shopping, single family homes and apartments/condos. You can check this area out HERE.

From fast-food to fine dining, you will be able to find many places to eat…and you can get to them all with either a quick drive or a nice leisurely walk to build up the appetite. Check them out HERE. 

Many of you lived in the Summerville area while stationed in Charleston. If you haven’t been back in a while, you will have a hard time believing all of the changes to this quaint little town. But the one thing that hasn’t changed here is that it still has a quaint feel to it when you are in the downtown area. The website www.visitsummerville.com is loaded with a wealth of information on our little (???) town and what’s available. Even being here for a few years (49 to be exact) there are things listed on the site that we haven’t taken advantage of yet. Brochures about Summerville are also available at the hotel.

Of course, the Charleston area in general has a plethora (like that word?) of things you can do. Here is a small list with links:

Plantations & Gardens:

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens

 

Boone Hall Plantation

 

Middleton Place

 

Drayton Hall

 

Charleston Tea Plantation

 

McLeod Plantation

 

Hampton Plantation
