IT'S OUR FIRST OVERNIGHT DRIVE AND DINE TOUR OF THE SEASON! The famous HERSHEY PORSCHE-ONLY SWAP MEET happens to fall out on Easter weekend this year. Because of that, we have revised our event this year into a two-day fun event (Friday 4/19 and Saturday 4/20, so you can get back home or enjoy things on your own for Easter Sunday). On Friday our scenic country drive from Urbana, MD will take us through three (3) Covered Bridges, the historic Gettysburg Battlefield, and stops for lunch at the quaint Carriage House Inn (an old favorite) and a new venue for us, the EASTERN MUSEUM OF MOTOR RACING (EMMR), complete with sports cars, open wheel cars and yes, Nitro-Burning Funny Cars! We will finish the day at our stop for the night, the GETTYSBURG HOTEL (we have a $169/night rate), and enjoy dinner in the heart of historic Gettysburg at a comfortable venue.
Early Saturday morning, we will parade up to Hershey (an hour away) to attend the Swap Meet. Afterward, we can meet at Troeg's Brewery to unwind and then we can then head off to enjoy the rest of the weekend.
