Virginia Piedmont, Blue Ridge Mountains, and Natural Bridge,VA
2008 NCC BMWCCA Fall Tour - Natural Bridge, VA
Saturday & Sunday, November 1 & 2, 2008
Departure Time: 9:00 am
Departure Location: Chantilly, VA
Given your Guest Tourmeister's affinity for the Virginia Piedmont and Charlottesville, you had to figure we'd be headed back. We are. This year's Fall Tour will start in Chantilly, VA and head west and south through the Piedmont to Charlottesville for lunch. Once again this year, we will be dining at the historic Michie Tavern (http://michietavern.com/) near Monticello. After lunch, we'll do some more driving through the foothills around Charlottesville before heading to Wintergreen (http://www.wintergreenresort.com/). Wintergreen has several golf courses, a spa, fitness center, and lots of other activities. Because there is so much to do in the area (markets, galleries, wineries, recreational activities, more great roads, etc.), we’ll finish up the driving portion around 3:30-4:00, leaving a few hours for folks to enjoy the area before the reception, dinner, and overnight. Sunday morning, we’ll take the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the Natural Bridge and Caverns (http://www.naturalbridgeva.com/). After visiting these natural wonders, you’ll be free to head home, explore other local sites, or do whatever you would like.
Wintergreen has a block of rooms for us at the rate of $139 (+ tax). You are responsible for making and paying for your own room reservations. For reservations, call: 1-800-611-6888 (ask for Group Reservations) and mention the BMW Car Club Event (Acct # 40I9OG). Rooms should be reserved as soon as possible in order to guarantee the rate and availability. When you call, please confirm with Wintergreen their cancellation room policy.
