Summary of The Day: We will depart in the morning for Virginia. Upon our arrival in this scenic state, we will head to Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley to visit Luray Caverns (admisison not included), which perhaps are best known caverns for the Great Stalacpipe Organ. The Great Stalacpipe Organ is the world's largest musical instrument. It literally makes stalactites sing by gently tapping them throughout three acres of the caverns. It's a musical masterpiece that can't be found anywhere else in the world ... or under it.
In the afternoon, we will go to the Natural Bridge - referenced in "Moby Dick" and called by Thomas Jefferson “the most sublime of nature's works” (admission not included). The rock arch has a 90-foot span. Virginia's Natural Bridge (located in an eponymous town) has been fascinating travelers for hundreds of years.
Our accommodations for the evening will be in Tennessee.
Summary of The Day: We'll arrived early in the morning at Biltmore Estate (admission not included) in North Carolina, a French Renaissance-style house which was built by George Vanderbilt II. The estate covers 8,000 acres to be considered as the largest private home and a symbol of the American Gilded Age (1870s-1900). Driving through the lush green ground, you will be amazed by the beauty of the the breathtaking trees in America’s first managed forest, as well as the vineyards and farms raising livestock or tending crops.
Biltmore’s landscape is like a wonderland to make you leave the hustle and bustles behind. Standing on the promenade, you can overlook the Great Smoky Mountains National Park not far from Biltmore Garden. Moreover, you can stroll around the manicured Italian Garden, and you also can savor complimentary tastings of local-made wine to extend your Biltmore experience.
With a slight tipsy feeling, we will set forth to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee's most famous family resort, where visitors can participate in a western horse dinner show (at your own expense) - Dixie Stampede. Dine in a dinner theatre where you can watch a brilliant show with 32 horses and a cast of top-notch riders plus a mouth-watering four-course feast complete with a delicious dessert! They will thrill you with daring feats of trick riding and competition, pitting North against South in a friendly and fun rivalry. You will also enjoy music, dancing, special effects and family friendly comedy along the way.
After dinner we will check in the hotel located in Pigeon Forge.
Summary of The Day: In the morning our tour continues to Tennessee with a trip to the Great Smoky Mountains where we will learn more about the music heritage of Tennessee.
We will drive through the Great Smoky Mountains. This 522,000-acre national park straddles the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. It’s a most-visited national park in the United States and a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is renowned for its diversity of plant and animal life and natural beauty of landscapes. Open areas in the park offer some best opportunities to see wildlife, for example black bear, elk, white-tail deer, as well as over 1,500 kinds of wildflowers. From an overlook named Newfound Gap we can enjoy the beautiful scene of the great mountains located right at the border between Tennessee and North Carolina.
After a stop for lunch, we will head back to Washington, D.C. at about 8:00pm.
