Museum in Motion Bash Dragon Run

Presented by Michelin

April 26 – APRIL 29, 2020

Spring in the Smokies, Tail of the Dragon and Biltmore all combined in one great MiM tour. Once again we hit the road, leaving Bowling Green and heading East to run the famous TN-129, aka Tail of the Dragon. This year again, we will be staying at the beautiful Biltmore Inn on the Biltmore Estate grounds. The Monday Biltmore visit includes a specially arranged early morning photo op of the cars in front of the manor house followed by breakfast in the Biltmore Stable Café adjacent to the house. This Museum in Motion will include a specialty tour at the Biltmore. We will not know any information about this tour until the end of the year. Biltmore has been making a couple of changes to their tours and will let us know the available tours once they have been finalized. Lunch will be at the Deer Park Restaurant on the grounds. After hours – enjoy a special private guided tour of the Mansion. New friends will be made while enjoying one of the most beautiful areas of the country during the colorful spring season. GPS as well as two-way radios highly recommended!
