This year’s National Capital Chapter of the BMW Car Club Spring Tour will be 16 May 2013 – 20 May 2013 to Asheville, NC. We will tour and lunch at the Biltmore Estate, drive some great back roads as we tour a few waterfalls and lastly we will drive the Tail of the Dragon a time or two or three or four.

Take the time to visit the Asheville visitor site for other activities: http://www.exploreasheville.com/

Book a spa treatment at The Grove Park Inn, visit the many microbreweries, or take in Asheville's bohemenian downtown. There is plenty to do.

If you have never heard about or driven the Dragon, then Google is your friend.

This tour will follow our usual format of a drivers' meet at the start and the dispersal of a packet with turn-by-turn directions and other important information.
