    After the Ball

    There are now two options available for the After the Ball tour - a Northern Tour and a Southern Tour (please see below for more information about the AFB Southern Tour). After the club breakfast on Friday morning, the After the Ball tour groups will depart. The ATB Northern Tour group will depart for the entrance to Skyline Drive and a trip along the entire length of the parkway, which meanders along the top of The Blue Ridge mountains. We will stop at Big Meadows for lunch in the national park lodge, and then continue to Front Royal. Late that afternoon we will be guests at White Post Restorations for a tour of their facilities and a peek at current cars being restored, and then spend the night nearby in Winchester. For those who want to sample some finer (and more expensive) lodging, there are two alternatives. The Inn at Little Washington offers first-class treatment and impeccable fine dining (though it is very expensive, and reservations are booked for months in advance). Another nice alternative would be to proceed to the quaint town of Middleburg and spend the night at the restored Red Fox Inn. Saturday morning the group will converge in Middleburg to enjoy the town and its quaint shops, and be treated to the scenic drives through Virginia’s hunt country. After lunch, we depart for the visitors center at Manassas Battlefield National Park, where we can stretch our legs and walk the hallowed, civil-war battlefields where Stonewall Jackson earned his nickname (“There he stands, like a stone wall!”). We end our tour there, on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., where everyone will then be free to make their own plans to enjoy the limitless sites at our nation’s capitol.
