MiM Magical Mystical Tour
July 28 – August 2, 2013

 

 

Summer vacations were made for Corvettes and the NCM is putting them both together again for another year of exciting Museum in Motion tours. This MiM tour starts off with the Classic Corvettes of Minnesota Car Show at Mystic Lake Casino in Prior Lake Minnesota.  Early arrivals will enjoy two days of casino action and car show fun before taking off caravan style on July 28th to beautiful Mackinac Island and Mackinaw City.  Some of the stops along the way will be for lunch at German Haus Restaurant, special tours of the famous Harley Davidson Museum, the Kohler factory, and a glass bottom boat ride to view shipwrecks of the past. To keep the good times coming, we’ll take a run at the old road course at Elkhart Lake, and then make an excursion to “The Shops at Woodlake.” Once we arrive at Mackinac Island we’ll have lunch at the Grand Hotel, before enjoying scenic drives through the famous M-119 Tunnel of Trees and the Sleeping Dunes National Park.  You’ll have plenty of memories to talk about when the tour ends with a private BBQ beach party for you and all of your new found friends.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to put that Corvette to good use and become a part of the Museum in Motion experience.
