2020 Smoky Mountain Tour Itinerary
Day 1: Sunday, May 31, 2020
We kick off our tour at the world-renowned Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, where a late-afternoon arrival will allow us to look over each other’s cars and get to know one another before we gather for a welcome dinner on site. Consider opting for an earlier arrival to get a chance to enjoy a wine tasting or hang out in the beautiful resort pool area.
Day 2: Monday, June 1, 2020
Our first stop is Atlanta Motorsports park, where we’ll enjoy a tour of the facility and touring laps on this track, arguably one of America’s most challenging. Then it’s on to lunch in the quaint Alpine-inspired town of Helen, where we will be having a feast of authentic German food. The afternoon’s winding mountain roads will bring you to 200 Main, an Old Edwards property in Highlands, one of North Carolina’s most beautiful resort towns. This will be our base for the next three days.
Day 3: Tuesday, June 2, 2020
Today is double-TOD (Tail of the Dragon) day: We’ll get a chance to run the Dragon in both directions. This will give both drivers and co-drivers a chance to experience the thrill of driving this infamous piece of highway (or give drivers a chance to perfect their line with a second run). From there we will run the ridges between North Carolina and Tennessee on the Foothills Parkway before arriving at a historic Lodge for lunch. The afternoon brings more incredible roads as we work our way back to Highlands and dinner at a cozy restaurant rated one of the village’s best.
Day 4: Wednesday, June 3, 2019
Time to hit the much-ballyhooed Blue Ridge Parkway. We will spend much of the day on the parkway, enjoying the easy driving and stunning mountain vistas, as we work our way up to Maggie Valley and a really cool museum. There’s time in the schedule to stop at waterfalls and other points of interest and still make it back in time to spend some time exploring Highlands, where dinner is on your own tonight.
Day 5: Thursday, June 4, 2019
It is time to start heading south toward Atlanta, but we will do it in style, with great roads and some of the best barbecue you will ever eat (hosted at a funky automotive museum to boot). Finally, we do truly save the best for last, as we wrap with a tour and dinner in the museum at the Porsche Experience Center. This is always followed by a memorable afterparty on the rooftop of the Soltis Hotel, our home for our final night.
