We will stay at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains for two nights at the Boar's Head Resort - the only AAA Four Diamond resort in Charlottesville. Enjoy a warm and intimate ambiance with southern hospitality, a luxury spa, scenic hikes, outdoor pools, multiple restaurants and bars.  We have negotiated a significant reduction in room rate at the Boar's Head. CONFIRMED Tour participants can book rooms for $200/night. (Rates normally start ~$300).  Once your registration status has been "Confirmed", we'll email the link to this group rate.  Please do not try to make a reservation before being Confirmed and receiving this link.

FRIDAY August 12th

Participants from FSR will travel on their own to the Boar's Head Resort.  There will be no organized caravan on this part of the trip.  Feel free to coordinate with other members, but the drive will not be an official FSR drive.  

On Friday evening, we'll enjoy a four-course, group dinner at Vivace Italian Restaurant in Charlottesville.  Menu details are still being finalized, but is expected to include appetizer, salad, main entree (Chicken Marsala, Veal Parmesan, Shrimp Scampi, Steak or Eggplant Parmesan), a choice of dessert, and non-alcoholic beverages.  You can purchase beer, wine and cocktails separately, as these are not included in the registration fee.

SATURDAY August 13th AM

Our Saturday agenda starts after breakfast with a short drive and tour of Monticello.  Get to know Thomas Jefferson - author of the Declaration of Independence and the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom, third President of the United States, and founder of the University of Virginia.  We will enjoy a 45-minute tour and have ample time to explore the beautiful grounds and site.  The tour is a guided experience that includes first floor spaces of Thomas Jefferson's home, the West Lawn, and the South Wing.  You'll learn about Jefferson and his vision of America, the realities of slavery on the Monticello plantation, and the mountaintop's iconic architecture.  The tour also includes access to the gardens, grounds, walking tours, family friendly activities and exhibits.

We will then drive to The Piedmont Bar & Kitchen for lunch.
