    Default Va. Beach/Outer Banks XLR Trip May 3-9, 2015

    "Surfing the Mid-Atlantic 2015"

    Amy & I would like to invite everyone to come along on a trip through the Virginia Beach/Outer Banks, N.C. area for May 3-9, 2015. A rough itinerary we've come up with is as follows:

    Sun., May 3: Start in Virginia Beach with a welcome dinner

    Mon., May 4: Visit the Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, http://www.virginiaaquarium.com in the morning, & in the afternoon the Virginia Beach Aviation Museum (focuses on keeping historical planes actually flying), http://www.militaryaviationmuseum.org

    Tues., May 5: In the morning, visit the Mariner's Museum (can see the Civil War ironclad USS Monitor), http://www.marinersmuseum.org. When we're done, stop by our Cadillac dealer, then head on to Nauticus (naval/nautical/sea museum) and tour the battleship Wisconsin. http://www.nauticus.org/visitor-info/index.

    Wed., May 6: Relocate to Kitty Hawk, N.C./Outer Banks. Visit the Wright Brothers Memorial, http://www.nps.gov/wrbr/index.htm; Corolla Wild Horse Tours, http://www.corollaoutback.com

    Thurs., May 7: Cape Hatteras Lighthouse, http://www.nps.gov/caha/historyculture/cape-hatteras-light-station.htm; Roanoke Island Festival Park (historical exhibits about the first attempt of the English to settle in America), http://www.roanokeisland.com.

    Fri., May 8: "Whalehead" historic 21,000 square foot vacation home of the Knights, http://www.visitwhalehead.com/.

    Sat., May 9: departure day

    There's LOTS of stuff to do around here, and the above schedule will be fine tuned as we do some recon and sort out how long things will take. Also, others on here might have some better ideas of things to do & places to go that might get plugged in instead. We plan to fit in some scenic drives as well. Anyone can come along for all or any part of the week or trips that we do, or just hang out on the beach. "Day trippers" - folks who live nearby & want to just come along from the day - are more than welcome too. We'll be happy to have along whoever wants to come!

    Accommodations: For Virginia Beach, we've reserved a block of oceanfront rooms for $115 a night at the Hampton Inn Oceanfront South, 1011 Atlantic Avenue, www.virginiabeachoceanfrontsouth.hamptoninn.com. They have an attached parking garage and will be reserving parking spaces for our group. Make your reservations by calling 757-965-2300 and ask for the XLR Club block to get the rate.

    For the Outer Banks, we've reserved a block of side ocean view rooms for $159 a night at the Hilton Garden Inn Outer Banks/Kitty Hawk, 5353 N. Va. Dare Trail, http://www.hiltongardeninnouterbanks.com/. We are getting a BIG discount from the regular rate and they are used to dealing with car clubs, and will also have reserved parking set up. Make your reservations by calling 252-261-1290 and asking for the XLR Car Club block.

    Looking forward to seeing a bunch of XLR's!

    Mike

    I'm still trying to figure out if this would work. Since I missed everyone in BG for the 10th anniversary. I would like to get up there (at least to hilton head) to see everyone. So i just want to let you all know i haven't fully backed out in my mind. Yet. Was wondering if there would be security for our XLRs and some kind of car washer like you all said that you had for the bowling green event

    You'll have to go farther north than Hilton Head to make the trip - we aren't going down into South Carolina.

    We followed the model of other trips we've been on so there will be parking spots marked off for our vehicles at the hotels. I do know that we'll be in a gated garage attached to the hotel in Virginia Beach, & they have security checking everyone who pulls in. The set-up in Kitty Hawk, NC will be just like the other XLR trips we've been on - marked off open air parking, although they told us they are used to hosting car clubs so I'm sure they'll take care of us. Perhaps we've just been lucky, but nothing has happened to our cars on any of the group trips, haven't heard of anyone else having a problem - & I'm very protective of my XLR.

    We do have plans to arrange for a detailer to be available &/or stop by our Cadillac dealer for detailing, since they said they would do "anything we wanted."

    Next year you should try a tour Florida trip. Preferably somewhere mid July- November. Then I'm sure some snowbirds would join in too
