Have you ever wanted to travel the United States and stop at places that were significant to automotive history but weren’t quite sure where how to go about it? The National Corvette Museum is offering several trips as part of its Museum in Motion tours.

The first tour is quickly approaching and already sold out, but you can sign up to be on the wait list. From April 26-29, the tour goes east from Bowling Green, Kentucky, to run the famous TN-129, also known as the Tail of the Dragon. The tour will stay at the Biltmore Inn, with a special early morning photo of the cars in front of the manor house following by breakfast in the Biltmore Stable Cafe.

Included is an opportunity to break away from the group and to join either the Legacy of the Land Tour, Red Wine and Chocolate Seminar or the new Upstairs/Downstairs tour of the Downton Abbey exhibit.

Registration fee for museum members (driver and car) is $1,250 and $500 for a passenger. Add $40 for non-members.

If you dont make it for the Tail of the Dragon, the museum will stage a June 23-28 caravan to Mid America Motorworks in Effingham, Illinois, for lunch, tours, and seminars, and from there to Indianapolis and Bloomington Gold.

Participants get special VIP/behind-the-scenes tour that includes parade laps around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Registration for the Bloomington Gold tour is $1,000 for member drivers and their cars and $300 for a passenger, with an additional $40 for non-members.

Have a thing for Texas? The Museum in Motion’s “Lone Star Boots, Fun & Fast” is scheduled September 15-20.  The museum has teamed with the Lone Star Corvette Club of Plano, Texas, for a visit to the Dallas/Fort Worth area that includes the Kennedy museum, Michael Brown Museum of Vintage Corvettes and the Texas Rangers museum.

Registration is $1,250 for members.
