    09/30/2016 - 10/01/2016 - Sunrise to Sunset Tour II - CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER

    WITH MUCH REGRET, THIS YEAR'S TOUR IS CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER. SATURDAY IS FORECAST AS RAIN AND/OR OVERCAST. THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS TOUR IS TO SEE THE SUN. PLUS DRIVING ACROSS THE STATE IN RAIN IS NO FUN.

    We had a blast last year. The sunrise was gorgeous. The sunse.....was not so seen. Everyone still had a good. We will start in Bowie and travel to Chincoteague, Va. for an overnight stay. We will then rise Saturday to arrive on the beach for the sunrise. We will then travel to Skyline Drive, stopping along the way for breakfast and lunch, for the sunset.

    To answer the question of why this tour happens on a Friday to Saturday, it is because this tour takes plenty out of you. To do this on a Saturday to Sunday and have people drive home a couple of hours Sunday night and then get up for work on Monday just seems cruel and unusual.

    This tour will begin just after sunrise in Chincoteague, Va and end after sunset on Skyline Dr. in the Shenandoah National Park. Along the way we will stop for breakfast, stop for lunch along the way, then an early dinner at Michie Tavern in Charlottesville, Va, then a drive along Skyline Dr. to watch the sunset.
    Chincoteague is known for it's wild horses, bird migration and as one of the best beach towns in America.
    We were not able to secured a block of rooms this year. However we are still trying to make this happen.at the Hampton Inn in Chincoteague. The hotel chains are the Hampton Inn, Comfort Suites, and Fairfield Inn. The Hampton Inn will be base for leaving on Saturday morning. Try the usual routes for obtaining a a good rate (online, calling hotel directly, AAA or corporate rate or points)

    If you are departing the DMV on the morning of Saturday the October 1st, we will depart the Hampton Inn at 0630hrs.
    If you are leaving on Friday the 30th, we will caravan from the IHOP in Bowie (15470 Annapolis Rd, Bowie, MD 20715) at 0900hrs. Lunch stop TBD.
    On Saturday October 1st after watching/photographing the sunrise we will stop for breakfast on the Eastern Shore. From there we will continue on to lunch TBD, then on to Michie Tavern in Charlottesville for a early dinner. We will end at a designated overlook on Skyline Drive to watch the sunset.
